And here is the summary of the week ending September 6, 2019

This week, I reflected on Content Marketing World … on the question of whether the story ended satisfactorily … in the manner of modifying the traditional approaches to marketing … s & # 39; involve in social issues … and that we can learn from leading brands with a purpose.

A deep thought (2:08): The public waits for the obligatory scene – a climactic moment that completes the story. The hero makes a flight defying death. The verdict shakes the audience room. A novel is sacrificed for the greater good. However, as brands bring greater social causes and reason to their stories, satisfactory conclusions are probably an exception rather than the rule. I argue that – uncomfortable though it is – adopting open conclusions can improve our stories.
So uncomfortable, he embraces open stories, says @Robert_Rose. #WeeklyWrap Click To Tweet

A new interpretation of the news (8:48): This week, I share a comment that I really liked about Kristen Colonna, head of strategy at OMD. In Adweek's 3 Ways We Can Shake Up, Kristen questions the makeup of modern connection and communication and "the biggest challenge facing our industry today." "How to create meaningful consumer experiences that generate real brand value." I will explain exactly why this article sounded so true to me. It has nothing to do with data but everything to do with ideas and ideals.


One Person Making a Difference in Content (14:00):
This week, I'm chatting with my friend Jeff Fromm, President of FutureCast, subject matter expert and professional speaker on trends in consumption and branding strategy. . He has worked all over the world, not Antarctica. Jeff is a Forbes contributing writer and author of four books: Marketing to Millennials, Millennials with Kids, Marketing to Gen Z and (his last), The Purpose Advantage. Jeff led the first major Generation Y study, open to the public, as part of a partnership with the Boston Consulting Group in 2010-2011. He sits on the board of Three Dog Bakery. Jeff graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and studied at the London School of Economics.

Jeff and I delve deeper into the definition of "goal" versus "a benefit of purpose," Patagonia's passage of "do no harm" to a "protect and defend" approach, and the place of purpose in the model global economic (index: this is not charity, that is the strategy). Listen to Jeff's great ideas, then get to know him better in:

The goal is not a charity, it's a strategic business model, says @Robert_Rose. #WeeklyWrap Click To Tweet

A Usable Content Marketing Idea (28:20): After this inspiring conversation with Jeff, I encourage you to read (or review) this article by Kim Moutsos: 3 Purpose, Brand Marketing Lessons innovative. What I prefer in this article (spoiler alert) is the importance of accounting for the difference you make together. It's a great reminder that the goal is not unique and that it's done, it's permanent. If you are tackling something important, you are working on something, not necessarily on solving it. If you are interested in marketing or branding focused on specific goals, be sure to check out this one.
The story of the objective is not one and finished. That's going on, says @Robert_Rose. #WeeklyWrap Click To Tweet

The Conclusion

Treat yourself next week to an idea to live in, a new one with which you can live, a person who makes you want to live up to something and a practical advice on the content you can use. And all this comes in a little less time than it takes most people to confuse Memorial Day and Labor Day.

If you like this weekly pun, we would love you to review and share it. Hashtag us on Twitter: #WeeklyWrap.
