Overview: The State of B2B Content Marketing IN NORTH AMERI CA
More. If one word could describe content marketing at the end of 2012, that would be it . According to the latest findings from the Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs, B2B marketers are spending more, using more tactics, and
distributing their content on more social networks than they have in years past. Unfortunately, there is also more uncertainty. B2B marketers are more uncertain whether they are using various content marketing tactics effectively.
