Leveraging data in content creation
Lessons from our Content Impact Study
Defining “impact” is a familiar challenge in the mission-driven sector. There are commonly used measurements that are readily available, yet often we are asked for differing metrics from various stakeholders ― making “impact” hard to benchmark and impact reporting to be an inefficient task.
ParsonsTKO’s Data Innovation Studio gathered metrics and information from various stakeholders throughout the sector to build a report that analyzes how data has specifically been applied to the content development process, what challenges exist, and what we should consider moving forward.
In this panel discussion, we talked about the trends and obstacles PTKO has identified through our Content Impact Report research. We also dove into content such as case studies, and the best way your organization can reach your audience and drive impact.
