Is This the Top Content Marketing Company in the World?

Is This the Top Content Marketing Company in the World? | Google Plus and Social SEO | Scoop.it
The rise of content marketing means we must all become publishers. How do we do that well and what is the top content marketing company on the planet?
Neil Ferree's insight:
Why content marketing upsets traditional marketers

The old school marketing habits and paradigms don’t cut it anymore because content marketing requires a different way of thinking. It flips the marketing model in many ways.

  1. Pull rather than push. Its about attracting the customer to you rather than pushing advertisements. That’s different.
  2. Entertain and educate first and sell second. Traditional marketing never heard of the term educate.
  3. You don’t talk about your product. Mentioning your product in content marketing is inappropriate. The old school thinking struggles with that. 
  4. You must think and act like a publisher not an advertiser. That is not in the comfort zone.
  5. You operate in real time. This means you have to be thinking about “continuous marketing” as well as being campaign focused. That’s demanding.
  6. Need different resources. This includes staff and software. The status quo is being challenged.
  7. Needs a different culture. Publishing culture is different to an advertising mindset. Newsrooms, reporting and editing are a world apart from corporate marketing and advertising.

Interesting to see the role of content curators starts to be measured in studies like this.


I like the conclusion this article highlights about adapting content to the platform but I'll go further : adapt it to curators and show them what's in it for them. Info graphics and survey results are a great example as they let content curators draw their own conclusions... like this article actually shows. 

malek's curator insight, October 30, 2013 8:38 AM

Imagine this Venn digram

-54% of the sample are content creators.

-52% are curators

-40% create and curate

The overlap is an explosion in curation role, helped by the eruption in visual content curation

Despite being the second social network, according to the number of active members, ordinary users are still using it as a source of useful information when searching for information online. In 12 months just managed to rise by 7% benchmark traffic volume, although with this social network is not possible to have decisive conclusions. Do not forget that this is a Google product factory, and any new change could radically alter this trend.
