A new content marketing strategy was defined for SBB’s e-business. To ensure its 40-member team could implement this new strategy effectively, the e-business division ran a project with Webrepublic including a final workshop. The result: 40 content heroes emerged, eager to take content marketing to another level; their newly designed content was of a better quality, more relevant and easily accessible across different platforms.
