7 Insights From Content Marketing Experts

I was sitting at the bar the other night hanging out with some friends. During the evening as we were catching up on what’s new in each other’s lives, I mentioned that I started a new business a few weeks ago that deals with content marketing.

My friends are a very intelligent, eclectic group, but don’t deal with marketing during their day to day affairs so they didn’t understand the little nuances and differences between inbound marketing, PR, SEO, and content marketing.

Some of the examples I used to help them better understand what content marketing is all about are listed below. I figured if these quotes were helpful to them, they would be equally as helpful to everyone here.

As with a fine wine, content marketing takes time to be the most effective. It can’t be rushed, pushed, prodded, and thrown to the trolls. Content marketing is about people and the stories they tell along with the conversations you have with them.
