Is Metagaming Silently Killing Your Marketing?

"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore." ~ André Gide

Online marketing, a field which benefits greatly from rigorous testing and thoughtful looks into a multitude of data, sometimes has to face the double-edged sword of best practices.

Though they encourage tested tactics, what works for one may not work for all.

Best practices also encourage “prescribed” advice that can stifle innovation at a company that refuses to innovate on its own – imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but it is not innovation.

That said, in tomorrow's post  +Gregory Ciotti explains why you need to be careful about listening to the "metagame."

Stay tuned.

Hi all! I'm new to the group and to the content marketing scene. So I'm curious for your thoughts: what's your workflow for choosing new content ideas? Does an editor accept ideas and choose the ones that work? Do a bunch of people vote on ideas?

I'm trying to think of a process that's democratic but also productive. Our editors tend to think of really great ideas, so we struggle to have any meaningful discussion around them because well, we just want to go ahead and write them! It seems like you could do everything online (vote, add helpful notes, etc) that I'm not sure what to do with valuable face time.

Appreciate any thoughts you guys have :)

I'm not surprised financial brands aren't taking advantage of #Pinterest , according to +Sprout Social. Speaking from experience, it can be difficult to creatively spin your content when you work in a "boring" industry.
