What is digital asset management for content distribution?
No brand is an island. Files need to be sent and received internally but also with external parties, and it needs to be simple. Digital asset management for content distribution makes file transfer size limitations and attachments too big for email things of the past.
Digital asset management allows you to easily share and distribute your brand, marketing, and product digital assets with external parties such as dealers, agencies, field teams, sales, PR and media outlets, vendors and partners.
Different companies use different technologies and external partners may not be able to access your martech solutions. Likely, you’ve been in a situation where you were working with an external party that could not access the right content, data or information in order for you to collaborate with them successfully. How can you go to market fast if you’re unable to readily send and receive digital assets? There are many things that inhibit content distribution for people dealing with digital content operations every day: File size too big for email? File size too big for your file transfer platform? Can’t find the content or the right file? Can’t get access to the right digital asset?
What are the common challenges with content distribution?
When it comes to collaborating with external parties, sending and receiving files can be a pain. Your IT may block your access to specific applications used by external parties (or vice versa). If you’re working with people outside your organization like dealers, agencies, resellers, and partners, you need content distribution solutions that work.
Missing content means you can’t go to market yet. Online purchases start with online visual content. The sooner visual content is online, the sooner you can start getting sales. External dealer networks and internal sales teams need content to go to market quickly to remain competitive. Slow time to deliver content means that sales teams must wait for product imagery distribution in order to bring in new sales.
