What are you seeing in the field and trends?
Seeing overall that B2B marketers believe that content is more important than ever. 84% of B2B marketers are looking to increase their investment in content this year. 55% of marketing budgets are spent in content investment. But they are saying their content is under-performing. Why? Possible answers are:
1. Their content isn't very good.
2. The experience surrounding the content isn't peforming.
3. OR they are not able to see the results to properly measure the success.
For content to be successful, it definitely needs to be engaging. To do this, need to consider the medium - read, interact - either way, it needs to be insightful, relevant and something other than what the "other guys" are producing. The content has to be action-oriented. You have to have a piece of content that you expect something to happen at the end. This should be common sense, but it is often forgotten in the rush to meet the content quota and flood the venues.
