At the time of this announcement, Ed Breault, VP, Head of Marketing, Aprimo, said, “Today’s content marketers are faced with challenges when it comes to the process of ideation, organization and rolling out the necessary steps of a customer experience. Many team members have their own methods of taking notes, sharing ideas or collaborating. This makes it increasingly difficult to visualize and understand ideas, and ultimately decreases the speed in getting new experiences out the door.

The new capabilities include Aprimo Idea Lab – a new ideation solution that helps content marketing and creative teams ideate faster and better in the early stages of the content ideation and planning process.

Aprimo Idea Lab is the only ideation solution on the market that connects into the best-of-breed Aprimo platform, which includes workflow management and digital asset management solutions that help content marketers integrate processes and move more seamlessly through the end-to-end content lifecycle.

Idea Lab enables content marketing teams to digitize the content ideation process. The solution provides teams a visual canvas to help marketers quickly create ideas and decide which ones should move into the market with the following capabilities:

  • Idea workspaces to help collect and share early-stage ideas.
  • Dynamic, ad-hoc collaboration capabilities to allow teams to quickly and easily brainstorm new concepts together.
  • Flexible planning and calendar capabilities to easily view when and where ideas can be brought to market.
  • Connect finalized ideas into actionable marketing plans.
  • A single cloud-based solution to manage the entire content lifecycle at scale.

Ed added, “Through our team’s own implementation of the new content marketing solutions, we’ve been able to better manage and track ideas while increasing overall productivity and collaboration.”

  • Dynamically collaborate on work-in-progress content with workflow and annotations
  • Curate content with digital asset management capabilities

“Like other marketers, our team understands that content marketing is critical to creating dynamic and impactful connections with our customers. But when faced with many disconnected components, from ideation to approvals, scheduling, and asset management, we needed a partner to help address these challenges,” said a large financial services firm using Idea Lab.

The company executive added, “Aprimo has helped us bridge the gap between all of these stages to better strategize on content and ultimately create those powerful connections our customers desire through storytelling.”

Aprimo will be exhibiting at the Intelligent Content Conference in Las Vegas from March 20-22.
