3 Tools to Improve Your Asset Management

BY BOOM Editorial

Visual content is a cornerstone of every online business. Striking images capture your customer’s attention and inspire them to buy. Whether you’re in ecommerce, real estate, food delivery, or fashion, evocative digital photography and other visual assets can make all the difference to conversions. 

After all, standing out online is the first step towards attracting customers. 

Yet, it’s one thing to have a plan for content creation. Who’s creating it? Are these images evergreen product shots or for a specific marketing campaign? Where will you store your content after it’s been created? How do people access it? Having an effective content management strategy is as important as crafting exquisite content. 

After all, from photography to video, everything is a digital asset, and you need multiple assets to plan your marketing campaigns. When your files spread across platforms it can lead to confusion and wasted time for your marketing team. How much time do you spend looking for your visual content files? 

While marketing teams work at speed putting together effective campaigns, mislabeled or forgotten files can slow your conversions. The problem is worth taking seriously as a recent study shows marketers waste 3 weeks a year searching for files.  

Who has time for that? Fortunately, you can do better than cobble together an array of tools that don’t work well together. The right management tools make life easier and teams more collaborative, so you can knock out high-performing visual content and grow the business both at the same time!
