FROM THE EDITOR

 

What makes a piece of content a fit for the middle stage of the buyer's journey versus the early stage? When does a piece of content become so promotional that it aligns with the late stage? 

 

There are no hard and fast rules about what makes a certain piece of content align with a certain stage in the buyer's journey. But there are some guides, including the good one charted in this week's featured article.

 

I hope you find this guide as helpful as our internal team does when we use it. Thanks for reading,
 

-Abby

Drive More Traffic And Engagement With Content Amplification
 

"There is no problem with organic traffic," says James Tenant. "The problem lies with the expectations people have when it comes to organic traffic. And, frankly, the delusion that generating it is both a) easily achievable and, b) that it is the only traffic source worth aiming for." This article features advice from content marketing experts about the importance of content living outside of your own brand's ecosystem. 

 
 
The Great Balancing Act: The Long And Short Of B2B Marketing
 

"Only 24% of B2B marketers we spoke to run campaigns for more than six months," says David van Schaick in this 2019 MarketingWeek article. "Somewhat bizarrely, half of those surveyed measure the results of their campaigns for less time than the business’s average sales cycle."
