Increasing Traffic through Content Marketing
Thursday, July 25, 2013 from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM (EDT)
MarketingExperiments increased blog traffic 232% with content marketing. And, you can too!
According to MarketingSherpa research, marketers say that content is among the most effective lead generation tactics, but also among the most difficult for them to execute. In this session, Pamela Markey, Senior Director of Marketing, MECLABS, and Daniel Burstein, Director of Editorial Content, MECLABS, will provide an inside look at how the parent company of MarketingSherpa and MarketingExperiments produces its own content, and share some research and “how to” information about content marketing.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why so-called “free” content isn’t really free for your audience
- How to identify your brand’s content “story”
- How to overcome 3 common content marketing barriers
