Stop if you've heard this before: How on earth do you make time for all of that?

Life as the team's sole content marketing professional can be exciting. You have creative freedom, can plan things according to your schedule, and may even get away with telling your manager that riding the children's carousel for the third time is absolutely crucial for your next TikTok video. (No one else, just me?)

But every one of those gifts can also be a curse: I have to write everything? I have to make (and keep) my own schedule? And how on earth do I make time for growing my creative voice when I'm running 5+ social media accounts, blogs, videos, podcasts, and who knows what else?! I already need a nap.

In this session, Beth Elderkin, content marketing manager for the Game Developers Conference (GDC), shares her best tools and practices for navigating life as your team or company's sole content marketer. Topics will include: finding the time, motivation, and support to define your brand's voice (while still keeping it boss-friendly); building a routine and upload schedule that works for you; and how to advocate for content marketing within the overall marketing plan.

Takeaway

  • Shape their brand's voice into something they and their company can be proud of.
  • Prioritize tasks, set manageable schedules, and avoid crunch or burnout.
  • Find space for new ideas, experimentation, and even a bit of weirdness or fun.
