5 Powerful Content Strategies from Top Digital Leaders (Part 1)
“While certainly there’s sweeping change…as much as audiences are changing in how they consume content, what we do know is that they still love content.”

So said 
Kristen O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer at Time Warner Inc., while adroitly moderating a powerful panel peopled by digital all-stars, and titled “The Entertainment Ecosystem” from the CDO Summit at Time Warner in NYC in April 2014.

More tweetable quotes from our esteemed panel:
  • “If they want to have a picture of their head with a beard from Duck Dynasty, you do that.” – Dan Suratt
  • “The power of a Real Housewives fan with a mobile phone – now, that’s true engagement.” – Lisa Hsia
Watch the video for these powerful digital content strategies:
1. Explore distribution and engagement channels
2. Engagement as a long-term dialogue
3. Tap into your audience’s audiences
4. Experiment to find the content format that fits you best
5. Use data analytics to optimize your content and distribution

Participants included, from left to right in the video above, moderator Kristen O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer at Time Warner Inc.; Thomas Gewecke, Executive Vice President and Chief Digital Officer of Strategy and Business Development at Warner Bros.; Dan Suratt, Executive Vice President of Digital Media and Business Development at A&E Networks; Kristin Frank, Executive Vice President at Connected Content Group (MTV, VH1, CMT, LOGO at Viacom); and Lisa Hsia, Executive Vice President of Digital at Bravo and Oxygen Media.

Don’t Miss This Saturday’s CDO JOBS Update
Yes, we missed the deadline on last week’s CDO JOBS Update. The truth is, there is so much activity that its hard to keep up. 

More CDOs were hired in Q4 2014 than in all of 2013. 

As Gartner Analyst Dave Aron said, new CDO hires are “springing up faster than we can count them.”

Due to the volume of new CDO hires, we’ll now be publishing the CDO JOBS Update quarterly. And we’ll publish two Updates – one for Chief DIGITAL Officers, the other for Chief DATA Officers.

Check out this Saturday’s Update. It includes detailed information on open CDO jobs and recent placements. Its the most comprehensive, up-to-date report on the state of the CDO.

Did I take back at least three relevant pieces of news I can use? Check. Flying colors for the Chief Digital Officer Summit 2013! Thank you so much, and yes, I’d be very pleased to participate next year!”
