Real-Time Content Marketing and Newsjacking

Content Marketing strategies typically focus on long-term planning, editorial calendars, and multiple review processes. But there’s another way to reach your audience with content: Publish in real-time. Rather than create and publish content when you’re ready, get your brand out there when the market is ready!

Real-time rules; speed and agility win — not the most lovingly created content! When there is news in your marketplace, reporters and analysts are looking for experts to comment on the story. When consumers are alerted to a trend, they’re often ready to spend money. Now!

News Jacking -- the art and science of injecting your ideas into a breaking news story to generate tons of media coverage, get sales leads, and grow business -- gets attention. But you've got to be quick and you've got to be on pitch.

Learn the power of Real-Time Content Marketing and Newsjacking from David Meerman Scott, content marketing pioneer and the founder of the Newsjacking movement. David’s Newsjacking strategies are now so popular that “newsjacking” is included in the Oxford English Dictionary.
