"Purposeful Content"



FCS Denver will stage a panel event exploring “Purposeful Content” on June 19th at the headquarters of our host sponsor Cactus.

We’ll explore topics and answer questions about content ranging from 'where to start' to 'how to measure success.' We’ll tackle questions such as:

  • How do you determine what content is most relevant and authentic to your brand

  • What are best practices for getting your target audience to engage with your content?

  • What should you avoid when building a content marketing campaign?

  • How do you identify the target audience best suited for your specific content?

  • How do your hire/staff the team to create the content?

This event will provide you the unique opportunity to meet the key players in the Denver financial marketing industry and engage with thought leaders in the area. Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to socialize with local marketing influencers while enjoying complimentary cocktails and appetizers.

Net proceeds from this and other FCS Denver events help fund our chapter's philanthropic mission of supporting children's charities.
