It is vital for organizations to examine their content creation strategies in light of the rapidly evolving content marketing industry.

Once upon a time good employees updated their job skills and advanced to the next career level with the regularity of Mario questing for Princess Peach. But then technology proliferated, and the well-read encyclopedia salesman, savvy VCR repairman and worldly travel agent either faded away or morphed into updated versions of their former selves.
