  • @undefined 'First of all, always be leery of stats compiled with an agenda in mind',
    Totally agree there.
    Also beware of 'convenient numbers' coming from mixed sources.
    Content has always been a key ingredient of marketing.
    The law of 10-20-70 still applies, but in the online world that has now become 1-4-95!! ie very few bands know how to do content well. Hence the new breed of 'content marketing experts' that put these lists together.

  • First of all, always be leery of stats compiled with an agenda in mind. Secondly, if you think content is all marketing is, then of course you'll think content marketing is taking over marketing. Finally, check out how consumers feel about it, considering they're the ones who have to read all of it. Here's tidbit: '67% of B2B buyers don't trust vendor content.' http://contentmarketinginstitute.com/2013/07/compelling-content-marketing-consumer-research/

  • Thanks for putting this together!
    On behalf of the whole team here at Demand Metric, thanks for including one of the stats from our Content Marketing Infographic:
    http://www.demandmetric.com/content/content-marketing-infographic

    To find many more stats (from 2014) on Content Marketing, you can check out a recent benchmark report we published on the topic here:
    http://www.demandmetric.com/content/content-marketing-benchmark-report

    Also, here is a link to a very interesting research study we did with Ion Interactive about the difference in effectiveness between interactive (apps) content vs. passive (whitepapers, downloads, etc) content for influencing the buyer's journey:

  • The only issue I have with this list is that the majority of the research is from 2012, which makes these numbers seem lower than they should be given the further increases in smartphone & tablet usage and the number of companies adding to the content overload.

  • I think marketing has come such a long way with the emergence of the content-is-king methodology. I do find it interesting with all the ways marketing has to measure content effectiveness on the web, email, blogs, etc. that no one is questioning the effectiveness and methodologies of most expensive (hands-down) content delivery channel in business. What is that? The sales channel. Marketing develops compelling content that they can prove helps them get leads, then they throw it over the wall to sales in hopes that it is effective in closing deals, not in just finding them. We call this 'faith based marketing' and it is costing businesses visibility and sales effectiveness. And it is an expensive problem to not solve.
