Selling clothes and saving the planet: how Patagonia content does it all

Patagonia’s content does more than convince and help customers to purchase products. It’s not just about completing a transaction – or about marketing the company. They use content to build relationships and to inform, educate and inspire.

Laura will take us on a journey through the inspiring digital landscape of Patagonia, exploring how the clothing brand and campaigning organisation uses content to connect people, products and the planet. Along the way she’ll point out useful lessons, tips and tricks that can be applied in all sorts of contexts.

NB She isn’t on commission; she just loves what Patagonia does with content.
