http://www.b2bmarketinginsider.com/content-marketing/trends-predictions-future-content-marketing - This week I presented at the BtoB Magazine's Digital Live conference in New York. The topic was the future of content marketing. And I walked the audience through the trends and some of my own predictions related to content marketing, marketing and even the future of business itself.

Some Content Marketing Trends:

Everyone uses content marketing but no one feels they are very good at it. The Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs released their latest trends that showed that more than 90% report to use content marketing and less than 50% fell they are very good at it.
Advertising is on the decline. Mass marketing and promotional advertising techniques just ain't working and this causing marketers to consider content marketing over advertising.
Still, 73% of consumers could care less if the brands they use disappeared tomorrow
My Content Marketing Predictions

Customer-Centricity is the only way to break through the noise of boring and self-promoting content. We must begin to make our customers the heroes of our stories
The future of content is mobile, visual, consumable and snackable
More brands will start acting like publishers and setting up newsrooms. Brand journalism is here to stay.
Brands will partner with publishers to deliver high-quality content in innovative new ways.
Brands will begin to entertain their audiences by producing high quality entertainment and features
A few brands will have the courage to show their human side and produce funny, humorous content
So there you have it, some of my top trends and predictions. What do you think?

Let me know what you think in the comments below. And please follow along on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Google+ or Subscribe to the B2B Marketing Insider Blog for regular updates.

  • I would like to be more optimistic about this presentation, but really it's not leading edge, SAP=ERP, as Salesforce=CRM, both believe they have a omni-channel content play and they don't, because their revenues are driven by their core competences. Adobe is closer, Oracle will buy like IBM, but not convert.

    The issue is that content is a journey of experiences online, offline and socially driven, with known consumer interactions, if content is so key, where are the content publishing technologies from these vendors! Michael the overview is great, I just don't think SAP can deliver the solution.

    We are moving towards 'context related content' where the Analytics of the consumers interaction with the content is based on multiple object interactions, from location, media, content, person, buying profile, brand, PIM. This leads to CRM data acquistion through the content, therefore enabling the next generation of content to be based of the relationships of the consumer with the brand.

    After all it is recognized by the big-publishers/brands/agencies that its not the content that resonates it's the relevance of that content!
