Core Concept Workshop: Content Development & Writing

We believe that high-quality print content cuts through digital clutter like nothing else. And there's science to support this. Physical material is better connected to memory and involves more emotional processing than digital. And for brands, there's proven ROI, too. This deep emotional connection generates results for brand awareness as well as transactional conversion. Through the lens of California Closet's award-winning magazine, Ideas of Order, we'll show you, soup-to-nuts, how to develop a world-class, editorially driven magazine that inspires customers, nurtures brand loyalty, and generates remarkable ROI – all at once.


By the close of this workshop you will understand how to:
1. Articulate a magazine vision statement that delivers on your brand purpose while bringing tangible value to your customers.
2. Frame up editorial architecture for the magazine that befits your brand and audience.
3. Flesh out a story lineup that brings your vision to life.
4. Set a creative budget and keep to it by recruiting contributors from within and outside of your organization, while steering best-of-breed design using a mix of original photography and stock.
5. Create a targeted distribution strategy and the means to measure response.
