  • I’ve noticed that when a Slideshare user becomes a so-called “Presentation all-star”(due to large viewer counts) the presenters quickly become full of themselves and create presentations where they talk incessantly about themselves & their accomplishments. Major mistake. “Junta” said it best on slide3. “Customers don’t care about us, they care about themselves.”

  • 3. “A major mistake involves too much‘me, me, me.’ Marketers like to talkabout themselves first. But if we thinklike publishers and focus on the reader’sneeds, we have a better opportunity todeliver quality information. Remember, our customers don’t careabout us, they care about themselves.” “JUNTA” JOE PULIZZI • Co-author of GET CONTENT GET CUSTOMERS & MANAGING CONTENT MARKETING • Speaker, blogger, Founder of the  CONTENT MARKETING INSTITUTE
  • 4. WELCOME TO THE CONTENT MARKETING HALL OF SHAMEThe Narcissist Too much ‘me, me, me’

  • 7. “The most common mistake is anunwillingness to think like a consumerand then write stuff consumers reallycare about. My motto is simple when itcomes to content marketing: if they’rethinking it, we should be addressing it…We can’t bury our head in the sand. Weneed to address subjects (like pricing,for example) head on.” MARCUS SHERIDAN • Founder of THE SALES LION • Speaker, trainer, blogger & author • Partner at RIVER POOLS AND SPAS

  • 9. “Selling rather than helping…You should try to imagine whypeople would want to read, listen to,or view the content you are creating.What is in it for them?

  • 10. WELCOME TO THE CONTENT MARKETING HALL OF SHAMEThe PitchmanConfuses content marketing with advertising
  • 11. “One of the biggest content marketingmistakes is to jump in and start creatingcontent.

  • 12. WELCOME TO THE CONTENT MARKETING HALL OF SHAMEThe AimlessRather not bother with marketing goals
  • 13. “One of the biggest mistakes is toassume that content marketing is onlyfor the top part of the funnel — thebeing found and generating leads part. Content marketing is more holistic thanthat and should ultimately be developedas a process that engages the consumerthrough every stage of the funnel — allthe way through engaging them as asubscriber AFTER they’ve becomecustomers.” ROBERT ROSE • Chief troublemaker at BIG BLUE MOOSE • Co-author of MANAGING CONTENT MARKETING
