AAA has roadside help, travel agency services, insurance and other amenities for its members. But they felt it important that their members engage more with them, and thus a content strategy was born. So they partnered with longtime SIPA member Mequoda to develop that strategy, convincing their CEO that, yes, a daily email with strong, relatable content, is the right road to take (traffic and all).
More than 8 million 2018 page views and 1.3 million users later, they feel pretty comfortable about that strategy. And after Day 1 of SIIA's 5th annual and counting Business Information & Media Summit (BIMS) in even warmer-than-usual Fort Lauderdale, publishing and media folks are equally comfortable with this solutions-oriented conference.
AAA Northeast represents a newer type of SIPA member—most niche publishers started with great content and branched out from there—but they depend, like others, on analytics and testing.
