September 14, 2016 Cathy McPhillips

screen-shot-2016-09-14-at-8-16-55-amOur year of #CMWorld Twitter chats culminate with our big conference and expo each year, and we’re still all aglow in orange from our four days with 3,600+ members of our community. We are so glad that so many members of our #CMWorld online community could join us offline for the big event.

What were the common themes and biggest takeaways? What did you learn, and who did you meet? Attendees shared their learnings, and those not in attendance got a glimpse of what to watch in the fourth quarter and beyond.

A few highlights of the chat are below. Visit this week’s Storify for even more great conversations about CMWorld 2016 as well as the future of content marketing through our participants’ eyes.

A5: I think it’s around building REAL, RELEVANT personas. Get focused, HELP people. Be in service to your demo. #cmworld

A5: More content will be coming from places other than #marketing (employees, fans) which will cause marketing to reflect, improve. #CMWorld

A5: Build out a plan, even a fluid one, on deliberate content creation. Don’t rush for the sake of pushing out more content. #CMWorld
