Earning Trust, Gaining Credibility, and Other Lessons From the 2019 Widen Summit

by Courtney Roe, October 21, 2019

Building trust is tricky. And as the saying goes, trust is hard to earn but easy to lose. So what does that have to do with digital asset management (DAM)? A lot!

Each year, the Widen Summit focuses on concepts that are key to DAM success. 

In 2017, we honed in on what it takes to set better goals. Expanding on that in 2018, we learned how to tackle those goals using a strong strategy framework. This year though, we took a step back to realize that in order for people to believe in your goals and strategy, you need to first earn their trust. And this theme carried throughout our three days together — taking center stage in workshops, sessions, and keynotes.

The content hangover cure: Never wake up wondering where your content is ever again

by Jake Athey, May 17, 2017

 

As you may have guessed from the title, today we’re sharing real-world, proven strategies on how to make your visual content easily accessible so you never “wake up” wondering where your content is ever again.

Some of you may have already caught the analogy to the movie trilogy, “The Hangover.” Since the information we’re sharing here was originally presented at the Intelligent Content Conference (ICC) in Las Vegas, NV, we thought it would be fun to include some movie references throughout the article.

Lessons from a gathering of Creative Operations professionals

by Widen Marketing, May 5, 2017

The Creative Operations Exchange conference, April 2017, San Francisco, CA

It’s always awesome to visit California, but Widen’s trip in April to the inaugural Creative Ops conference in San Francisco was a great excuse to go.

Creative Operations is a new-ish term for the group more commonly known as Creative Services and is responsible for increasing efficiency and compliance in the creative production process. Moving production under the umbrella of operations is elevating its value – a good move if you ask me. While the group has always been essential to the success of the creative process, it’s also been seriously underrated in terms of creative input, output, and problem solving.

DAM and marketing conferences we’ll be at in 2017

by Melanie Olsen, February 1, 2017

2017 marks a year of more dedicated one-on-one support from Widen, more Workshops and Widen community events, and a couple new conferences we’ll be attending for the first time.

We know that our community of customers has great stories to tell, and they’re stories that help other DAM practitioners learn and grow. We’ve made it a point to invite our customers to the table anytime we get an opportunity to speak because their stories help others to understand just how powerful technology can lift your process, connect your teams, and save time, sanity, brain power, and money. We’re proud that our customers are joining us throughout the year!

Check out our 2017 lineup. If we’re lucky enough to cross paths in the coming months, I encourage you to join us for dinner or pop over and give us a high-five or a fist bump. We love it!
