Traditional marketing has been flipped on its head. Marketers know that today’s customers are much more savvy. They no longer listen to bullhorns and are skeptical of being oversold.

As content marketing continues to grow, how can marketers create a winning strategy that turns into business results? At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Understand where most content marketers go wrong in content development
  • Develop a winning content marketing game plan
  • Create, develop and distribute results-driven content

People want useful information and they want to find it fast. In order to take advantage of this with your website, you need to understand how content marketing optimization works and what falls flat. This is not a “build it and they will come” environment. At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • List common optimization mistakes
  • Create and optimize the content your prospects are looking for
