Vinay Gupta stressed the importance of making sure your creative strategy is sophisticated enough to use different kinds of content that can all work towards the same goal. "It's important to make content consumable in different formats for different people, while keeping the message and strategy the same," Gupta said. "Content should always have a goal."
"Content comes after message and strategy," said
Sukanya Ghosh, making the point that creating content should always have a point - to serve the message and the strategy. In that respect, "Content can be used internally for corporate messages, as well as for corporate communications and externally to customers and suppliers," responded Gupta.
"If people have not got their content strategy nailed correctly on the promise that they are making to the customer or on the point where they want to take the company, I think it just gets lost," Gupta said, "Content must always deliver a goal," Gupta said.
