Content Governance: A Marketer’s Perspective
Dusty DiMecurio, Director, Content Marketing & Social Media, Autodesk
Is your content governance initiative restricted to marketing?The business model at Autodesk is more than just marketing, it is subscription-based, which means the post-sales content is extremely important. The content governance needs to be helpful and accurate, as well as in the right context to ensure a satisfactory customer experience. A cross organizational content council really helps in this case because it makes sure that everyone is aligned and that they are able to produce consistent content which is on-brand and aligned consumer needs.
