    143 - Why a “Boring” Content Strategy is a Great Content Strategy

    We’re not sure how often someone has decided naming their podcast with the word BORING in it is a good idea, but that’s exactly what we’re about today… you’ll hear us often talk about fabulous strategies and big ideas and new innovations, but today, we’re waving the flag for the often unsung benefits of doing the BORING stuff.
    In this episode your hosts, Suzi Dafnis and Michelle Falzon celebrate the mundane… because while boring can be, well “boring”, it’s rarely praised when it comes to content marketing.

    The limitations of “speaker” vs “publisher” How you can become your own magazine publisher (and why you want to!) The most important device of all that you need to be thinking of when considering an online magazine strategy How the new era of content is more about “owning” media than “paying for” media How to incorporate a digital magazine into your content strategy - even if you never thought you needed one!

    141 - Communicate Don’t Isolate - Your Content Strategy in Tough Times

    What to do with your Content Marketing when things get tough?
    Of course, it doesn’t have to be a global pandemic, like what we’re seeing now for times to get tough… all of us at one point or another are going to experience those difficult times…
    Whether it’s a downturn in our industry, the loss of a big client that creates cashflow issues, a personal health crisis, issues with your team and perhaps losing a key team member or not being able to find the right support team. Really, the list is endless of what CAN go wrong!
    In this episode your hosts, Suzi Dafnis and Michelle Falzon answer the question: “How do you get going and keep going when a crisis hits or a big challenge forces you to change the way you are operating?” Especially seeing as the tendency can be to isolate and shutdown… but this is the VERY time you need to be connecting and communicating with your audience!

Why failing to communicate with your audience in times of change creates a “vacuum” (and what your audience is putting in that vacuum instead - hint: it’s not good!) Why providing psychological safety is more important than providing the facts (so don’t wait until you know everything to be communicating) How to use your support network in the tough times to stop from isolating and withdrawing from your market and your business. The GIANT mistake most people are making right now with their pre-scheduled content (and what to do about it) How to avoid sounding “tone-deaf” to your audience when THEY are going through a tough time And much more.
