DAM tips for B2B companies
In order to optimize your digital asset management, there are several practices you can implement to ensure you get the most out of your DAM.
Define your goals
Identify the needs of your team and decide on what areas of your digital asset management you want to automate. Analyze where issues currently exist, where improvements can be made and where you most want to focus your efforts. DAM analytics can show you existing asset usage and identity areas that require improvement.
Audit your assets
In order to get the most out of your digital asset catalog, you should audit your existing assets. Standardize your naming conventions across all files, minimize the quantity of duplicates and complete missing data fields. A DAM system can detect missing data fields and flag them to the team, alongside helping you make data changes in bulk.
