  27. 27. Conclusions • When thinking of using content marketing as a part of marketing efforts, it is important to understand country´s user specific behavior. • To be more energy efficient in order to save money in energy, is really determinant. • The weight of “recycling” terms gives a hint of what kind of real green term can be used as reinforcement in promotional texts or content marketing campaigns, if the product is recyclable. • Discussion: – Why the low average searches on Sweden using green term? – Green terms are no more key components within a value proposition? – What about energy savings or recycling? 27
