Roundtable: Content and Community…and Algorithms?

Nothing form of content can directly drive product sales as powerfully as reviews, and no one is better at writing those reviews than industry experts, the brand’s own super-fans, and employees who work with the product day in, and day out. In this discussion, we’ll look at how brands can take the traditionally high level and top of funnel of impact influencer marketing and employee advocacy programs down to the product level, leveraging the content created by experts internal and external to build communities, the challenges and opportunities therein, and how marketers can leverage intent data and algorithms to better understand the interests of their prospective customers, and which content to surface at any given time, to best address those needs.
