Digital asset management can get messy. Even with the right training and technology, the volume of assets and new users may exceed your bandwidth allocated to digital asset management. That’s why it’s important to take a step back and review your DAM system. We’ve created a checklist to help you understand how much of a priority your DAM cleanup should be and some options for next steps.
Customers, partners, friends, and colleagues, thank you for making 2016 another DAM good year! It’s community that fuels the Widen Experience, our vision for delivering marketing and content technology. We thank you for supporting that vision.

A Google search for “digital asset management” will give you hundreds of vendors. Where do you start? Which vendor has what you need?

Recently, I had the pleasure of co-presenting our webinar, The Essential Guide to Visual Content Marketing, with Peg Miller of the B2B Marketing Academy.

Your brand is a living, breathing, evolving thing. It delivers a promise and, as such, it has equity. It’s also one of the only true differentiators your company has, so don’t let it fragment into a bunch of different stories when a digital asset management (DAM) solution can keep it all together.
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.
Thank you customers. The crowd has spoken!
