  • Content Marketing 2012: Essential, Not Optional
    Content marketing has been on the rise in B2B companies for a few years now—but in 2012, this savvy strategy has finally crossed the threshold from potential to essential. According to a joint study by Marketing Profs and the Content Marketing Institute, 9 out of 10 B2B marketers are using content marketing to promote their businesses, committing an average of 25 percent of their budgets to fund creating and distributing relevant content online.
