With the growth of social media channels focusing on “narrowcasting,” or communication among smaller groups of people, you need to participate to stay relevant. Consumers’ use of these channels — like Snapchat and Instagram Stories — requires that marketers adopt new, creative approaches to content that fit within their overall digital strategy. By understanding how to harness this trend as a part of an overall digital strategy, you will be able to better ensure success.

Some brands and organizations are already experimenting. Using their content examples as a starting point, you will participate in a discussion about how the content uses narrowcasting to be successful and then brainstorm other content tactics. You will then be broken into smaller groups to create a narrowcasting content strategy for a sample company. 

Throughout this session, you’ll learn how to implement innovative content strategies into your communications plan, including how to:

  • Use narrowcasting on popular channels
  • Learn from examples — how organizations currently use narrowcasting
  • Approach narrowcasting planning to fit within a larger strategy
  • Generate content ideas that work for narrowcasting
