Who needs DAM? If you’re shooting 10,000 photos of a beetle, you probably do.

by Widen Marketing, May 9, 2016

Sorry to bug you... But when I came across the Microsculpture project from UK photographer Levon Biss and his exhibit at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, I said to myself, “What a great visual arts story about a man that is so passionate about his work!”. It's a story about a project that encompasses a wide range of disciplines from science (entomology), photography, microscopy, digital imaging, digital asset management, color management, and large format printing.

The Building Blocks of Visual Content Marketing

by Widen Marketing, April 11, 2016

Words like the ones you're reading now have been the voice of marketers since marketing began. Marketers treat words in all their variations — clever phrases, slogans, jingles, catchwords — as the tools of their trade. Their assets. The how's and why's of using them to effectively convey a message has occupied creative people and marketing mavens throughout the years. Today though, thanks largely to the maturation of the Web, visual content has become the marketer's newest asset. Visual content marketing is being used to convey messages more effectively than words alone can do.

The Making of a Marketing Technologist

by Widen Marketing, April 11, 2016

Digital marketing, in fact all of marketing, shifted dramatically in the past decade. If you look closely, you can probably trace this disruption back to Don Peppers and Martha Rogers and their 1996 book, “The One to One Future.” It outlines a marketing approach where companies sell to individuals rather than to a mass market.

by Widen Marketing, April 8, 2016

If you're a content marketer or involved in the copy writing or graphic design side of creating content...beware! There's a type of visual content asset you should learn about.

Use Quick Insights and join the 30% who use content effectively

by Widen Marketing, March 29, 2016

Stop for a second and consider some important statistics. According to the Content Marketing Institute, an overwhelming 66% of marketers don’t know what makes their content successful, or “performant”. In addition to that, 70% don’t think their teams are using content as effectively as they could be. In the absence of data to make content decisions, many marketers respond by making more content. But more content doesn’t always mean it’s necessary or quality.

It doesn’t have to be like that. Quick Insights, the latest feature from the Media Collective Insights team, gives you visibility into content performance so you can reuse the good stuff … and ditch the not-so-good stuff.
