Visibility across the Content Lifecycle
Through Kapost, IBM streamlined their content production across multiple sectors to achieve maximum alignment, accountability, and coordination.
IBM needed to find an efficient way to manage their content production cycle. Using a static chart as an editorial calendar, Tara Dunn, Inbound Marketing Strategy Lead, managed her publishing cycle by manually updating cells—often for hours at a time—and collaborating with her teams through email.
Limited Visibility and Context
Laborious Processes and Workflows
Inefficient Production Management
With help of the Kapost Content Studio, IBM streamlined content production while also giving a single place for stakeholders to access important content calendars. The best part? Everyone actually used it.
Entire content campaigns and programs across six different areas now use a centralized, master calendar with several custom views for specific teams and purposes. The customizable view in the Kapost Calendar gave visibility to track each team’s progress for specific initiatives.
Tracking important tasks and deadlines across teams suddenly got a lot easier. Within the first 90 days of implementing Kapost, IBM had 2,933 comments on content assets within the instance. The new streamline of communication allowed content to be produced with much more accountability.
Enhanced Day-to-Day Operations
With one centralized spot to work, the production process dramatically increased, leading to improvement in page views, time on page, content quality, collaboration, and teamwork.
“Kapost has become so useful to the point that I don’t even have to work hands-on in it. I can act as a consultant and an auditor and make sure I’m there for high-level problems and issues. But the day-to-day can actually be handled by the sector leads themselves.”
