Rethinking Digital Content Strategies | Michela Stribling
Brian Solis – a former colleague with an unerring ability to suss out emerging trends – talked about the growing need for responsive content. You’re probably familiar with the idea of responsive design, or the idea of creating sites that adapt to whatever device you happen to be using at the time. Responsive content is a similar idea – start with whatever medium your audience is using and design content specifically for that channel.

Six Unremarkable Ways to Create Remarkable Content
Create meaning: Rowse quoted Brian Solis, saying, “Don’t compete for the moment, compete for meaning.” He urged listeners to watch out for sameness of copy, emptiness in the Facebook “Like,” and disconnect between stories. There is an opportunity to create something with soul that has a lasting impact and that takes readers through a journey. Rowse said that when this is done well, marketers built trust, authority, and influence.

21 Digital Marketing Trends & Predictions for 2015
Brian Solis @briansolis – Principal Analyst, Altimeter Group I’d love to say that by 2015 we will truly see digital strategies that are integrated across social, mobile, advertising, marketing, comms, et al.

What we will see though is a more conscious effort to bring disparate groups to the table to learn how to collaborate across screens, channels, and moments of truth to deliver ONE experience to customers wherever they are in the lifecycle.

“Brands finds themselves at a challenging crossroads in their evolution. For decades, companies have utilized a command and control model as it pertains to their brands. Billions of dollars have been spent to carefully craft specific messages and deliver them via campaigns.

Five Key Takeaways from Social Fresh West
We are competing for attention and relevance. Futurist marketer and author of “What’s the Future of Business,” Brian Solis’ session was probably my favorite of the conference. He spoke about the need for marketers to take a step back from technology and simply ask, “What are you trying to do with social media?” He suggests asking the following question: How are you going to get the attention of customers and prospects and then hold onto it through a process? “It’s about behavior, feeling and how people interact with one another and using social tools to help you build these connections,” he says. Customers are going to go on that journey with or without you and as a marketer; it is your responsibility to design that journey.

ROI — The Realisation of Influence | Mediatrack
According to respected new media thinker Brian Solis, ‘For media to become social requires that marketers and creative professionals design shareability into content. Without doing so, content is at best consumable.’ Content must not just be consumed anymore – it must be shared and provoke a pre-designed response. He goes on to say context and segmentation must now be based on psychographics, not demographics.

Marketing in general, which can be content marketing, public relations or communications has a tendency to try and automate things, to the point of obscurity or mediocrity. There is a value in curation and a value in creation. But when you start to think of things in terms of automation, I think that we're just feeding the system for the sake of feeding the system.

The Rocky Mountain News, gone. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, gone. The chains that own large metropolitan dailies such as the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune and the Miami Herald are in bankruptcy. Other papers, large and small, are teetering on the brink.

On Monday, the Ann Arbor (Michigan) News announced that it will publish its last edition in July. Taking its place will be a Web site called

The situation now looks grim for The Tucson Citizen. In the past 25 years, circulation at Arizona's oldest newspaper has dwindled from 65,000 to 17,000. The Gannett Co. paper could fold if a buyer can't be found.

At least 120 newspapers in the U.S. have shut down since January 2008, according to Paper Cuts, a Web site tracking the newspaper industry. More than 21,000 jobs at 67 newspapers have vaporized in that time, according to the site.
