But how difficult has it been to stay on top of all the emails, blogs and reports and still get your day-to-day responsibilities accomplished? Exactly. It is nearly impossible to stay ahead of all of the information, not to mention make sense of it all so you can do something smart with it.

In 2013, Oreo made this term come to life when they capitalized on the power outage of Super Bowl XLVII and came up with “Dunk in the Dark.” While brands didn’t have the big opportunity last Sunday night in the way Oreo did two years ago, they sure did their best to tap into Super Bowl fever with efforts across social media. Take for example this tweet from Cheerios that they shared seconds after the goal-line interception by Patriot’s Malcolm Butler. Marketers need to discover ways they can be more agile and reactive to opportunities facing them in 2015. Ideas like these help brands connect with their customers.

Many organizations know that content is important but the stats highlight that brands are struggling to create, manage and maintain a steady flow of content in the pipeline. We love the idea of recycling content because it helps alleviate all these issues. When an organization thinks about the creation of a larger piece of content, such as an eBook, whitepaper or case study, the next step is to think about how that larger piece of content can be disseminated into small bites, including infographics, charts, slides, videos, testimonials, and more, for use across multiple channels. All of a sudden you’ve created a content beast. How can you do this at your organization?
Let us help you answer these questions and more, as you set out to WOO your customers in 2015.
