    According to the Content Marketing Institute's 2015 report, demand for content strategists has skyrocketed. However, content strategists are only as competent as their understanding of what success actually looks like in their company's eyes.

  • How To Improve Content ROI in Content Marketing Insider on 10/31/2014

    I recently reviewed the "2015 B2B Content Marketing" report by the Content Marketing Institute and was astounded to read that 70% of B2B marketers create more content year over year, yet most inadequately track results. Nearly half of B2B marketers (48%) do not even have a clear, documented plan of attack.

    Many small business marketers dismiss content marketing as something they simply can't afford to do. It is viewed as a buzzword -- a marketing trend that only huge global brands like Red Bull, United Airlines and General Electric have the budgets to use. That perception is far from the truth. The beauty of content marketing is its scalability in our current digitally savvy, low-cost content-distribution era.

  • Why Should Businesses Care About Content Marketing?  in Content Marketing Insider on 08/29/2014

    Content marketing gives small and medium-sized companies a momentous opportunity to fight the status quo, leveling the playing field between big corporations and start-ups, Ma and Pa suppliers and blue-chip investments. Gone are the days where businesses were only providers of tangible products and services. Today, successful businesses compete through the lens of their content as well, and the strength of their wit, humor and insight all play major roles in how their brands are received.
