A marketer's job can quickly become very complex, especially when visibility into the artwork workflow is lacking, communication between departments is ineffective, and approved content is difficult to access.
Most marketers have been on the never-ending search through inboxes, desktops, shared folders, or even an existing digital asset management (DAM) system – just to find that one image they wanted to use for an upcoming campaign. Time is lost during the search, sometimes to no avail, causing an entirely new photoshoot or design process.
Are you getting lost in the process? Without a system in place to manage a team’s projects and approvals, visibility of the entire artwork workflow is lost. This makes it hard for designers and marketers to access feedback, meet deadlines, and be confident they’re working on the right documents.
Is your feedback process time-consuming and inefficient? Review and approval processes are the bane of many marketers’ existences. Feedback gets lost, errors occur, and products aren’t ready for launch when you thought they would be.
Silos between departments and teams leads to miscommunication, errors, and missed deadlines. It’s difficult to get your internal and external teams together and on the same page. Relying on photoshoots to obtain product images halts campaign progress, making it increasingly more difficult to launch products on time.
With a DAM, your team can store digital assets like photographs, logos, packaging assets, and videos in a single solution. Each file has metadata attached, so it is easily searchable by keyword, type, color, synonym, campaign, and more based on the way your company and team searches for assets.
Manage multiple reviews of multiple files in a single location. Centralize feedback and quickly make changes so you always know the status of your assets and meet deadlines with ease. Keep track of content, assets, and other marketing materials every step of the way.
Improve content and quality at each stage of the packaging process by creating audit trails of feedback and changes. In one location, feedback is easily accessible, and your teams can be confident they’re working on the most up to date document.
Keep your stakeholders aligned and up to date on every project. By managing your projects and assets in one centralized location, every stakeholder has access to what they need, when they need it. Access approved packaging files and packshots to create marketing collateral in time for product launch. Creating signage and displays from approved digital content is more efficient. Ensure content is ready prior to launch and eliminate physical mockups.
