Content Marketing

Connecting the dots between content & business impact

The relationship between companies and people is entirely transparent. Social and mobile have torn down the walls of ads, sales pitches, and unwanted engagement. A treasure trove of data is out there to connect with customers, but it is massive, unstructured and siloed across many hubs of Internet content.

In the new world of marketing

  • Everything is online, digital and measurable
  • Consumers are TRUE participants in business
  • Marketing is in a massive transformation period characterized by:
    • The move from art to science‚Ä®
    • Aligning marketing activities with revenue growth
    • Data volume and complexity
  •  Every brand is a publisher

Business opportunity

Marketing has never been more strategic to companies, and measurement is essential. In the new world of marketing, where brands are publishers, consumers are influencers and content is created, shared and accessed at quantum scale, Marketers must think like scientists more than artists. Why? Because 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last two years, and this data is a treasure trove of insight into customers.


The massive volume of data available can help every marketer truly understand their market and measure their initiatives at big data scale. With search, marketers could understand intent, now with social they can understand interest, affinity and immediacy.
