  • 6. Objective: Thought-leadership projection•  Objective 1: Thought-leadership projection (a content strategy for goals of brand attribution or to influence sales)•  Rationale: Traditionally, companies have attempted demonstrating industry expertise to enhance brand reputation or to persuade sales (largely B2B but B2C as well). 6

  • 8. Objective: Crowd-sourcing & Support•  Objective 3: Crowd-sourcing/R&D/Product support•  Rationale: Traditionally, smart companies have done marketing research to drive product attributes (largely B2C but B2B as well).
