3 Steps to Running a Quick Content Audit

Posted by Kim Peek

June 22, 2020

You put a lot of time and energy into creating content that generates leads for your business, so it makes sense to expect results. While it’s tempting to throw a bunch of content out into the world to see what happens, there’s a more strategic way to optimize your website to generate traffic, leads, and sales results.

Over two decades ago, blogs entered the world as an online diary, then evolved into a weblog, and eventually gained momentum into the powerhouse lead generation tool they are today. While their purpose has remained constant, blogs have obviously evolved in many ways. Today, running a blog is a common full-time career, a place where people can expand their knowledge, seek advice, and read reviews before making a purchase. 

Making up 85% of online shoppers, millennials (individuals born between 1981-1996) have been the focus of B2C marketing for years. As the largest generation in today’s workforce, this generation is grabbing the attention of B2B marketers. After all, millennials are growing up and moving from post-college jobs into decision-making, management, and even ownership positions.

4 Ways to Use Marketing Content Successfully in the Sales Process

Posted by Dean Moothart

April 27, 2020

The primary purpose of marketing content is to drive traffic to your website and generating leads, but it’s not its only purpose. The content your marketing team creates as a part of the organization’s marketing strategy can and should be repurposed to support the entire sales process.
