The Future of Content Marketing

http://www.b2bmarketinginsider.com/content-marketing/content-marketing-word-year <br><br>Last week I presented on a NewsCred webinar on the future of content marketing. I talked about how marketing has always used great storytelling to connect with people. <br><br>I talked about how we are becoming a much more visual society, scanning information for the details we need in less than a second. <br><br>I used some stats and research and graphs to show that content marketing is all the marketing that's left. And my focus for the future of content marketing was for brands to be: <br><br>Informative <br>Visual <br>Shareable (and snackable, consumable, digestible, and always-on) <br>Entertaining <br>But I don't think any of these should be content marketing word of the year! I just know that your audience wants stories, not ads. And I hope to help you give it them! <br><br>So check out the presentation above
