Social Media Roundup: Hip-Hop Creates Fresh Content

Old-school hip-hop is more than rhymes: It teaches us to remix and create fresh marketing content. Also: Kick off your event coverage with Vine.

ASAE’s Marketing,  Membership & Communications Conference (#mmccon) continued today, and Associations Now staff and other attendees have been tweeting about the cool stuff they’ve seen. (Check out our live coverage here.)

Learn how to embrace the art of remixing to produce fresh marketing content, maximize the potential of Vine, and more,  in today’s Social Media Roundup.

Think Like A DJ, Think Like A Curator

If you think hip-hop and content marketing don’t belong together, then think again. In an energetic session, web strategist Maddie Grant and Aptify’s director of marketing, Bryan Kelly, encouraged content marketing professionals to pay homage to the principles of old-school hip-hop and apply them to their brand. Fresh content marketing is all about innovation, remixing, authenticity, and storytelling. (ht @BryanKellyNow)
