360 Video is a massive content opportunity for business

360 video

I recently caught up with my friend, Andrew Psarianos, CEO of Picture Perfect Productions, and he showed me a 360 video example that made my jaw drop. Until that point, I’d seen 360 examples, but I hadn’t seen a business case. Now I had. It was of Singapore’s stunning Marina Bay and rather than just…

Content marketing is fundamentally about business transformation

The Digital Conversationalist

If there is one thing I’m sure of, it’s this – we are having the wrong conversation about content marketing. Right now the conversation is too tactical. It’s too execution focused. It’s about content but it’s not about content marketing. Content marketing is about business transformation. It’s about putting the customer at the very heart…

Why content marketing must own social media

Andrea Edwards, The Digital Conversationalist

A friend recently asked me if they should move social media ownership under the banner of content marketing at their company, and I said yes, absolutely! Why?

#content360sg

I enjoyed a great couple of days attending Content360 in Singapore last week, with ACMA as the Association Partner for the event. The 180-strong audience enjoyed case-study rich presentations from some of the world’s greatest brands, and I definitely agree with the general sentiment that Singapore (and Asia) has moved beyond the why of content…

Heart of content marketing success

The Digital Conversationalist

My greatest concern in 2016 is businesses becoming cynical about content marketing because it does not work. As was referenced in this article ‘Content Marketing – It’s Going to Get Weird’ by Joe Pulitzzi (the benevolent father of content marketing), the nay-sayers are definitely starting to rise, and yet, content marketing is the greatest opportunity…

The Digital Conversationalist due to be born

The Digital Conversationalist

Well that’s it. My last day at Novus Asia and what a wonderful opportunity it’s been to work with the team here. Fabulous people. Talented. Smart. Brilliant. And funny. It’s also definitely not goodbye as we plan to become partners moving forward, with Novus Asia doing what it’s brilliant at, and me doing my bit…

Dear CEOs, Are You Happy Not Being a Blue Unicorn?

Employee advocacy

There is a definition for rare CEOs today called the Blue Unicorn. I first heard about Blue Unicorns from Ted Coine, chief relationship officer of Meddle.it on OP|EN for Business. In defining the Blue Unicorn, a CEO who truly gets social media is, “still so uncommon that we aren’t just looking for any unicorn, we’re…
