Richard Jones, CTO, Contrend, Talks with Singapore’s Money Fm 89.3 About the AI- and ML-Driven Martech Platform

Launched on 21 July 2021, Contrend helps businesses improve their content marketing campaigns. 

9 SEPTEMBER 2021, SINGAPORE/MELBOURNE: On Sunday, 29 August, Contrend CTO, Richard Jones, chatted with Elliott Danker on Money FM 89.3’s morning show, The Breakfast Huddle, about how Contrend can revolutionize the content marketing industry. Launched in July 2021 by Singapore- and Australia-based content marketing agency Immedia Content, Contrend gathers and analyzes readily available public data, using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to accurately identify true audience engagement, compare insights, and predict future content trends.

“The big issue is there’s so much more digital content being published today. Every business is pushing content through their websites and other marketing channels,” said Jones. “So we’re constantly looking for the best ways to resonate with audiences. And that means really understanding the topics, styles and different types of content that people are interested in. With Contrend you can make proactive, data-lead decisions that are a lot more inline with your audience.” 

One important note is that the proprietary content insights platform isn’t dependent on third-party cookies to gather data. This key security element means Contrend doesn’t track any individual’s online activity. Instead, the platform gathers data by analyzing content from public data sources, including search, social, audio, and mobile. And, Contrend can analyze over 3 million pieces of content per day from any language, country, and market.

“A lot of content marketing is heavily focused on industry-specific social media and keywords. If that’s the only data you use to create content, all you’ll be doing is going around in circles. You’ll miss the interests and affinities of 90% of your audience,” said Jones. “We wanted to revolutionize content marketing to help businesses start being more aware of the wider audience and content landscape, instead of only focusing on their own brand and competitors.”
