More businesses than ever are embracing content marketing and pushing large volumes of content through their owned corporate channels. However, fewer than 40%[1] report having a documented Content Marketing Strategy in place, leading to increased disillusionment with the discipline and scepticism about the return on investment from content marketing.

Why Employ a Content Marketing Strategy?

More than one-third of businesses that are employing Content Marketing report being in the nascent or early stage, experiencing “challenges with creating a cohesive strategy and a measurement plan”[2].

The Content Marketing Institute says: “UK marketers who have a documented content marketing strategy report higher levels of effectiveness with many of the content marketing tactics, social media platforms, and paid methods of content promotion/distribution that they use.
