8 content marketing principles most companies get wrong | Social Media Bites! | Scoop.it
Content marketing is the logical evolution of social media, the practice that puts the theory into action. Many companies whether B2B, B2C, enterprise or small business, are jumping on the content bandwagon.

Creating content-sharing relationships with these groups of like-minded folks could be as simple as asking.

Luke Hancock - H&H Social Design's curator insight, August 9, 2013 5:28 PM

While I believe the publication process of content has to be expedited, I think #2 has to come with a caveat of assure you're producing quality content.

 

I disapprove of barriers (internal & external) and bureaucracy preventing you from consistently producing content, I still think there needs to be measures that assures your content will resonate with your audience. 

 

Certainly, brands/companies don't realize all the content they're producing or content opportunities that are under their news.

 

Great read.

I think the inevitable trend is that digital content has to be more personal and customised, and content creators and providers have to be more strategic and targeted in their marketing.
Kanti Kumar's curator insight, February 1, 2015 8:09 AM

This article compiles the view of content marketing experts in the private sector. Some of these trends will apply to non-profits as well, especially targeted content and integrated digital channels. But there will be some other important trends, namely curation of content and increased engagement with audience, both of which will help non-profits in raising awareness about the issues on which they are working. What other trends do you foresee for non-profits?
