Two Dozen Tips for Building a World Class Content Marketing Program

Posted by Alan Vitberg

February 14, 2018

Is it Time to Update Your Content Marketing Game?

I’m starting to believe that content marketing as part of executing a growth strategy is reaching a point of saturation and diminishing returns.

Quantity over quality. Poor writing. Lack of strategic focus. Advertorial. One and done efforts with little to no promotion. Hiring cheap and getting cheap results.

How to Stop Your Marketing Budget from Being Cut

Posted by Alan Vitberg

July 26, 2017

 

At some point in your career, it’s likely that you’ll have a conversation with a C-suiter who will tell you that your marketing budget is being cut because the company must tighten its belt.

Pinterest... It's Not Just for Mommy Bloggers

Posted by Brian Hasenbauer

March 13, 2017

 

When Pinterest first came onto the social media scene in 2010, most B2B marketers wrote it off as “a great place for mommy bloggers.” This perception, whether real or imagined, has led to a slower adoption of Pinterest by B2B marketers as an acceptable social media platform. Many B2B marketers default to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn when looking for ways to promote their products and increasing brand awareness. But’s that not all that Pinterest is good for.  

While Pinterest is a wonderful platform for curating images of things that you like, it’s also a great place for B2B marketers to educate leads and prospects about their offerings and to generate website traffic. Pinterest is also an ideal place to find inspiration and new ideas on a wide array of topics. At times, I have been so inspired by what I have found on Pinterest, it’s reminded me of the inspiration from a TED Talk, but with still images.
