LOS ALTOS, Calif., May 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Thought Marketing, together with EMC's Enterprise Content Division (ECD) marketing team, has been awarded two Bronze Stevie® Awards in the "Computer Software" and "Computer Services" categories in the 14th Annual American Business Awards. The two marketing groups worked together closely to develop and deliver global thought leadership content for EMC's active executive IT community on the EMC Spark blog. As a result, average monthly views on the social platform increased by over 165% in 12 months, with additional business improvements measured across ECD site traffic and lead nurturing activities.
"While these awards look like an overnight success, they actually took months of hard work and creativity to earn. Winning two bronze Stevie awards reflects consistent marketing investment by EMC's Enterprise Content Division to bring original and useful posts to their global EMC Spark blog community," said Allison J. Taylor, founder and CEO of Thought Marketing. "Professionally it is very satisfying to see EMC's ECD marketing team recognized for their winning formula -- timely postings, balancing technical and business readers, and offering crisp writing with salient information. They made all the right moves to pair EMC's global community with professional marketing support, and the business results reflect this."
"A social platform such as the EMC Spark blog helps inspire our enterprise content management community to keep pushing the envelope as they consider digital transformation and seek better ways to do business in this digital era," said Chris McLaughlin, Chief Marketing Officer for EMC's Enterprise Content Division. "Our internal and partner thought leaders, working together with Thought Marketing, have taken advantage of this opportunity to share their perspectives and insights with our Spark community. This award is validation that EMC ECD marketing is effectively leveraging the latest digital and social marketing tools and techniques to bring us closer to our customers and our community."
