The 8 Core Principles of a Purpose-Focused Brand
It’s clear that customers, employees, and shareholders are seeking meaning and purpose from whom they buy from, work for, and invest in. This means that in order to stand out, your business has to stand for something. In this context, answers to the question “what’s our purpose?” can reveal rich opportunities to develop content that matters to audiences that range from customers to employees. In this fireside chat, Dent board member Russell Sparkman will discuss the eight principles of purpose-focused content marketing. Additionally, we will look at a few examples of B2B companies that have put this practice into place. Key takeaways from the conversation will include a framework for exploring your business’ purpose and insight into how to turn that purpose into creating engaging content.
