BrightEdge Equips Marketers to Drive Content Performance With 3.0 Tech
Content Performance Vision Fuels Product Adoption and Record Growth for Fifth Consecutive Year
SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 12, 2015) - BrightEdge, the essential content performance marketing platform, today announced the release of Content Optimizer 3.0 that integrates with Adobe Experience Manager. With 50 percent customer growth and new offices opened in Tokyo, Seattle, Sydney and Chicago, BrightEdge is now empowering more than 1,000 customers to win in the increasingly competitive battleground of digital content. Content Optimizer 3.0 delivers on BrightEdge's content performance vision by arming marketers with deep competitor insights to gain a competitive edge with exceptional content.
The Shift To Content Performance Marketing
Content measurement and performance have become the No. 1 priority for brands with over 79 percent stating that connecting content marketing activity to business outcomes will be much more important this year. As brands shift to become publishers and content is created and shared at an alarming rate -- more than 27 million pieces are shared each day -- consumers are becoming less tolerant to low quality content.
Today, brands are eager to understand what content performs and measure how that content impacts their business. BrightEdge has discovered a fundamental flaw in existing content marketing solutions that inhibits brands from doing just that: marketers have an abundance of information surrounding their own content, but when it comes to competitors' content, they remain in the dark. With Content Optimizer 3.0, BrightEdge enables brands to address this challenge head on and create content that wins. As a result, in 2014 over 50 household brand names adopted Content Optimizer. Those brands share the vision that content doesn't just exist, but also performs.
"I think if you're not doing Content Performance Marketing, you're missing the boat," said Sean Kainec, Home Depot.

"Today, people spend their lives on devices interacting with and consuming digital content. The key to success in such a competitive ecosystem lies in the creation of targeted content that is optimized fully at the time of creation and built to win," said Jim Yu, CEO at BrightEdge. "To remain competitive, marketers need to understand performance data and what their competitors are doing to gain actionable insights for optimizing their own content. Content Optimizer 3.0 provides that crucial competitive edge: the ability to tap into web-wide competitor content data. When you know where the competition is succeeding and failing, you can be significantly more strategic."
