  • identifying which of their assets (product-related or brand-related) they can leverage to differentiate themselves in the market
  • prioritizing their content efforts based on their resources so they can establish a strong presence on the channels their customers prefer (e.g., building a website that really shows the value of their product/service, figuring out which social media channel to focus on, etc.).
