Solovyova Dina Vitalyevna, PhD in Economics, Associate Professor, Faculty of Technological Management and Innovations, ITMO University, 11/2 Tchaikovsky St., Saint Petersburg, Russia, 191187 (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) paper proposes a new approach to the formation of brand content strategy based on the knowledge ecosystem concept that implies the synthesis and synergy of brand knowledge management and consumer experience in interaction with the brand. The «Knowledge Pyramid» model acts as a tool for designing brand communications with target audiences at four levels: data, information, knowledge and meta-knowledge. This approach allows building a close relationship between the brand and its target audiences, going from simple broadcasting of information messages to joint generation of meanings through emotional and cognitive involvement of consumers and creating a basis for them to live a sensory experience in connection with the brand. Consumer experience management in this paradigm is about building a relationship with the brand where the consumer can go from being a «customer» to being a «co-creator of ideas» and a «co-actor». The content strategy based on this approach aims to support this purposeful track in brand communications.
