How not to fail your Content Hub

Content Hub @ DMEXCO

Do you already bundle and streamline all online marketing activities of your company in a central place?

We at MHP go one step further and create a Content Hub as a central space for user-needs oriented content that displays it at the relevant touchpoints in a classified and personalised matter.

At DMEXCO we have given a presentation on this topic and want to summarise the most important points for you again here.

3 common fails

Most common mistakes organisations make

Content Hub projects often do not generate the outcome they are projected to generate or even lack a convinicing approach to start the project. In our experience, there are three main reasons that cause Content Hub projects to fail.

  • #1 Silo thinking

    Internal structures of an organisation are often transferred to the outside. Different departments create their own content for the same audience.
  • #2 Unsuitable Next Best Actions

    Users of company interfaces are often "left alone" with the content: It does not provide meaningful conversion options to trigger further actions.
  • #3 Generic content

    Often all users are shown the same content despite their different interests and needs.
