On September 24th, RichmondUX is excited to welcome Colleen Jones, author of Clout: The Art & Science of Influential Web Content, to Richmond! The venue is the Capital Ale House at Innsbrook, and will be a bit more social and casual in nature. Come ready to meet folks and network, before and after Colleen’s presentation!
Today, business is digital. That makes content critical. A new report from IBM finds CMOs now plan to spend more on content than on advertising (Marketing is a (Buyer) Journey, Not a Destination). Content also is the substance of the user experience for digital products and channels.
