Blockbuster Content ROI
There are many contributors to the success of a movie. Everything from
production to marketing to the story itself. Whether you view the movie industry as
the pursuit of artistic excellence, a capitalistic venture to earn profits, or both, there
are numerous parallels to content marketing.
Investing in planned storytelling to connect with audiences in a meaningful way, to
engage and inspire them to take action relevant to a brand’s business goals, is an
essential for content marketing. Beyond the movie premieres, ticket sales and
awards, determining the success of a film is based on a very simple metric; how
much money did it make?
Many marketers have struggled to truly quantify the success of their content
marketing efforts and to uncover the behind the scenes secrets to measuring
content marketing ROI, we’ve partnered with TopRank® Online Marketing to
feature some of the top content stars speaking at Content Marketing World in
Cleveland, September 8-11, 2015.

Oscar-Worthy Content Marketing
Requires a Subscriber Strategy
In the past six months, I've had the pleasure of meeting
with dozens of the largest and most innovative companies
on the planet. Not one of those companies (not one) was
working on an audience-building program focused on
subscriber growth. Sure, there were brand awareness
goals, perception goals, brand lift goals, lead generation
goals, and lead quality goals … but no subscriber goals.
The Importance of Subscription Growth
According to Content Marketing Institute and
MarketingProfs 2014 research, fewer than one in three
organizations have subscription growth as a content
marketing goal. And recent Association of National
Advertisers findings on native advertising didn’t even list
subscription growth as a possible metric.
Why is this important?

Use Subscriptions to Measure Content Marketing Value
More and more, we see the ultimate measurement of
content marketing programs depend on answering this
question:
What is the difference between those that subscribe to
my content and those that do not?
If you are trying to measure the value of your content
marketing program, create a subscription program.
Something truly unique and valuable that you can
consistently send to subscribers. Execute this over time,
and promote your subscription offer as much as you can.
Then, measure the difference. It does take time (at least 9+
months), but it works!

Content Marketing Measurement
Requires Ongoing Refinement
Marketing went from not being able to measure anything, to
being able to measure everything.
Determine Your Key Metrics
It is overwhelming, but pick a place to start… pick one
question you want to answer and go from there. Get it
roughly right, and keep refining. Continuously evolve and
add questions.
You also need to know what metrics are “useful” for you to
measure and keep a program on track (opens, click-
throughs, page hits, likes/tweets) versus “meaningful” – the
metrics that your business leaders care about (closed
deals, revenue, etc).
Always report to management meaningful metrics and use
tactical insights within marketing to improve content
performance.

Less-Than-Obvious Content
Metrics You Need to Pay
Attention to
Measure Content Marketing
Success - Meaningfully
The foundation of content strategy is goals. Without
knowing why content will be created and published -- to
what end, for whom, where, and how -- content marketing is
at best a spurious, ad hoc activity.
Yet when my colleague and partner-in-research, Susan
Etlinger, and I sat down around a year ago to discuss the
state of content measurement, we quickly realized growth in
that sector is nowhere near commensurate with the overall
growth of content marketing.
Content Marketing Performance
This lead to research into what KPIs marketers should be
working toward and measuring for in content, the subject of
our latest research report titled, Content Marketing
Performance: A Framework to Measure Real Business
Impact.

Less-Than-Obvious Content
Metrics You Need to Pay
Attention to
Measure Content Marketing
Success - Meaningfully
Content can indeed lift sales, but it can achieve so many
more measurable, revenue-linked goals associated not only
with marketing, but with other business areas, from product
development to customer service.
The Foundational Principle of Content Strategy
There is no content strategy without measurement strategy.
Before embarking on a content initiative, irrespective of
medium or platform, it's important to know what you want to
achieve.
•  Is it to drive more awareness?
•  Build an audience?
•  Encourage people to convert?
•  Reduce call center expense by deflecting appropriate
queries to a digital channel?
Each requires different metrics -- for content, yes, but also
to calculate whether you have achieved your goal.
“Content Marketing success starts
by first determining what critical
measurements drive spending
decisions.”

Measurement Intervention
With all of the articles, surveys and agencies calling for an
increase in the amount of strategic content that marketers
are producing, it would be easy to believe that we have
universally arrived at the Era of Content Marketing.
The Content Marketing Measurement Lag
But not so fast…content marketing measurement lags far
behind the common sense belief that if people don’t pay
attention to it, they can’t be persuaded by it. Marketing Mix
Models, while painfully flawed, have the solid advantage of
having been around for decades; they are built into
volumetric forecasts.
They represent a gross approximation of reality and cannot
read small spends, emergent media, or the diverse,
intimate, personal, service- driven nuances of content
distribution, but they have been around forever, so what
CMO is going to forgo their guidance to approve a plan that
is wholly ungrounded?

It’s Time for Content Marketing
Measurement Intervention
How on earth can the esoteric, precious, and unproven
metrics we’ve been using in content marketing unseed the
dominance of Mix? If trust is built on credibility and
credibility is built on consistently delivering what you say
you’ll deliver, how can convenience metrics ever win?
The Basic Tests of Marketing Metrics
We’ve been so focused on measuring what’s easy to
measure and what’s unique by platform, that we’ve failed
the basic tests of marketing metrics: Do they measure what
we really need to know? Are they material? Can they
predictably guide our businesses?
The most important thing you can do as a content marketer
is determine what measurements are critical in driving
spending decisions at your company and then build an
analytic methodology that answers it for content.

Linking Content Marketing
Strategy & Results
We’ve all seen the research that says organizations without
a documented content marketing strategy are most likely to
fail. But even those companies with a strategy often either
don’t know exactly what to measure against that strategy -
or do know, but don’t have the tools to be able to do it.
Show Real-Time & Long-Term Results
This is a huge issue. The purpose of developing a strategy
is to ensure that the business and marketing objectives
drive the execution. But if you can’t show content marketers
the real-time and long-term results of what they’re doing
relative to the business objectives, the strategy loses any
relevance.
Find the most simple, repeatable processes you can, and
make sure you’re getting the measurements that matter – in
real-time - to the people working on the execution. That’s
how you’ll link strategy to results.

Favorite Movie:
Shawshank Redemption
A Movie’s Success is Measured
by Box Office Sales
Measuring the success of your content marketing should
simply be based on the same criteria you measure your
overall marketing success. For me, that has always
included some measure of quantifiable results.
Hollywood doesn't care how many people are interested in
seeing a movie, watch the trailer, or hit their movie landing
page. The real measure of movie success is how many
tickets it sells.
Create Content Marketing People Want
Content Marketing is no different. You need interest. You
need to create content people want. You can measure that
by traffic. You can measure how good the content is and
how much engagement that content receives based on
shares, comments, and time spent. But clicks and shares
don't pay those movie star salaries, so you have to
generate real sales with real people.

The Real Measure of Content Marketing Success
1. How many people opt-in to your content by
"paying" (subscribing) with their email address
2. How many people provide even more personal details for
your whitepaper and eBook offers
3. How many people register for your events
4. Best of all, how many people click to buy something
Content Marketing success should be
measured the same as overall marketing
success – through quantifiable results.

Measure the Value of Your
Content Marketing
Instead of just measuring views, followers, fans, likes,
retweets, shares, and clicks, the smartest marketers in the
world are measuring the value of their content.
There are two simple ways to start thinking this way
immediately:
1. Revenue Per Post
Take the number of pieces of content you’ve distributed this
year and divide it by your company’s total revenue for the
same period. Now do this for the year prior. Is your revenue
per post higher than last year?
2. Revenue Per Subscriber
Take the total number of subscribers and divide it by the
total revenue generated by those subscribers who became
paying customers. Try this for a similar period and compare
the two. Is your revenue per subscriber rising?

Marketing Measurement
Content marketers now have the ability to measure a lot of
things, but that doesn’t mean that they’re worth measuring.
Monitor content performance across all channels. Look
for patterns, but keep common sense in play. Just because
something performs well one place, doesn’t mean that it’s
moving the needle toward overall goals.
Think progress, not perfection. Monitor, learn and adjust
what you’re doing as you go.
Remember what you’re trying to achieve. Not every
metric should be up and to the right. If that’s your goal, then
you’re risk averse and missing out on grand opportunities
for creativity with your content.
The point of measurement is for feedback, not to prove that
you always make the right decisions

How to Effectively Outsource
Content to Freelancers
Favorite Movie:
This is Spinal Tap
Measure Progress with Traffic
Engagement & Quality Leads
Referral Traffic. You can measure this super easy, non-
complicated metric with Google Analytics. I suggest you
focus on non-branded keyword referral traffic, which refers
to people who are coming to your site without typing your
brand name into the search engine.
Engagement. I personally think it’s only a matter of time
before engagement plays a role in search engine rankings.
The idea with engagement is if your content is encouraging
interactions – people sharing it, liking it, plus-one-ing it –
that is a sign of relevance. So, the more customer
engagement, the more relevant your content is.
Higher Quality Leads. How quickly is your content
accelerating the funnel or shortening the buying cycle? If
your leads are coming in by way of your content and they
are much closer to purchasing your product, that’s a clear
sign of success.

success, make all content
accountable & measurable to
attract, engage & convert.”

1. Attract - How does your content attract readers? How do
search, social, publications, subscriptions, advertising,
influencers, or events pull them in?
2. Engage - When customers consume your content, what
topics do they prefer? What formats and media types (text,
video, audio)? How do they interact and react?
3. Convert - What offers do you provide to collect inquiries,
subscriptions, downloads, registrations, trials, demos? How
effective are you at inspiring readers to take the next step?
If you want a real thrill in your content marketing, make sure
all of your content is accountable for attracting a target
audience, engaging them in a meaningful way and inspiring
them to take action.
Do that and you’ll find yourself in a safe happy place vs. a
leatherface the next time you meet with your CEO.

To get your content marketing efforts up in lights within your
firm, track your success back to your business objectives by
target marketing personas. Roughly one out of five B2B
marketers can successfully measure their content’s
success according to Content Marketing Institute and
MarketingProfs 2015 research.
Organizations tracking ROI perform 17X better than those
that didn’t according to Hubspot’s The State of Inbound
2014.
Create Content to Meet Business Goals
Start by stating your business goals and creating content to
achieve those objectives. Make your goals as tangible and
measurable as possible to increase your likelihood of
success. This translates to adding quantities and time
periods. To ensure that your goals are reasonable, create
them relative to your past year’s performance.

Among the top 5 content marketing goals are:
•  Build brand awareness.
•  Generate leads.
•  Drive sales, cross-sells and upsells.
•  Retain customers.
•  Grow thought leadership.
To improve content measurement, follow these 3
actionable content marketing tips:
1.  Include a call-to-action (aka CTA). Ask prospects to do
something you can measure.
2.  Use related landing pages rather than a one-size fits all
approach. The more tailored the landing page is to your
content, the better it should perform.
3.  Continually test your results. Take what works and find
ways to improve your performance.

Identify Solid Baselines
Measuring all are important, but having solid baselines
defined by appropriate research are just as important. This
can be accomplished by collecting and interpreting
audience, media, competitor and trend data.
Where these categories intersect can provide content
marketers with an end-to-end roadmap that defines goals,

  • 2. Joe Pulizzi Blockbuster Content ROI There are many contributors to the success of a movie. Everything from production to marketing to the story itself. Whether you view the movie industry as the pursuit of artistic excellence, a capitalistic venture to earn profits, or both, there are numerous parallels to content marketing. Investing in planned storytelling to connect with audiences in a meaningful way, to engage and inspire them to take action relevant to a brand’s business goals, is an essential for content marketing. Beyond the movie premieres, ticket sales and awards, determining the success of a film is based on a very simple metric; how much money did it make? Many marketers have struggled to truly quantify the success of their content marketing efforts and to uncover the behind the scenes secrets to measuring content marketing ROI, we’ve partnered with TopRank® Online Marketing to feature some of the top content stars speaking at Content Marketing World in Cleveland, September 8-11, 2015. It’s go time for content marketing ROI and our triple feature finale! Joe Pulizzi Founder, Content Marketing Institute & Content Marketing World

 - Joe Pulizzi
  • 7. Joe Pulizzi Joe Pulizzi @JoePulizzi Founder Content Marketing Institute #CMWorld Presentation: Welcome to the Content Marketing Revolution Favorite Movie: The Godfather I & II Oscar-Worthy Content Marketing Requires a Subscriber Strategy In the past six months, I've had the pleasure of meeting with dozens of the largest and most innovative companies on the planet. Not one of those companies (not one) was working on an audience-building program focused on subscriber growth. Sure, there were brand awareness goals, perception goals, brand lift goals, lead generation goals, and lead quality goals … but no subscriber goals. The Importance of Subscription Growth According to Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs 2014 research, fewer than one in three organizations have subscription growth as a content marketing goal. And recent Association of National Advertisers findings on native advertising didn’t even list subscription growth as a possible metric. Why is this important?
  • 8. Joe Pulizzi Joe Pulizzi @JoePulizzi Founder Content Marketing Institute #CMWorld Presentation: Welcome to the Content Marketing Revolution Favorite Movie: The Godfather I & II Use Subscriptions to Measure Content Marketing Value More and more, we see the ultimate measurement of content marketing programs depend on answering this question: What is the difference between those that subscribe to my content and those that do not? If you are trying to measure the value of your content marketing program, create a subscription program. Something truly unique and valuable that you can consistently send to subscribers. Execute this over time, and promote your subscription offer as much as you can. Then, measure the difference. It does take time (at least 9+ months), but it works! Oscar-Worthy Content Marketing Requires a Subscriber Strategy
  • 9. Jeannine Rossignol Jeannine Rossignol @j9rossignol Vice President, Marketing for Large Enterprise Operations Xerox #CMWorld Presentation: How Senior Marketers & CMOs Are Structuring Around Content Marketing Favorite Movie: Charlotte’s Web Content Marketing Measurement Requires Ongoing Refinement Marketing went from not being able to measure anything, to being able to measure everything. Determine Your Key Metrics It is overwhelming, but pick a place to start… pick one question you want to answer and go from there. Get it roughly right, and keep refining. Continuously evolve and add questions. You also need to know what metrics are “useful” for you to measure and keep a program on track (opens, click- throughs, page hits, likes/tweets) versus “meaningful” – the metrics that your business leaders care about (closed deals, revenue, etc). Always report to management meaningful metrics and use tactical insights within marketing to improve content performance.
  • 10. Rebecca Lieb Rebecca Lieb @lieblink Industry Analyst Altimeter Group #CMWorld Presentation: Less-Than-Obvious Content Metrics You Need to Pay Attention to Measure Content Marketing Success - Meaningfully The foundation of content strategy is goals. Without knowing why content will be created and published -- to what end, for whom, where, and how -- content marketing is at best a spurious, ad hoc activity. Yet when my colleague and partner-in-research, Susan Etlinger, and I sat down around a year ago to discuss the state of content measurement, we quickly realized growth in that sector is nowhere near commensurate with the overall growth of content marketing. Content Marketing Performance This lead to research into what KPIs marketers should be working toward and measuring for in content, the subject of our latest research report titled, Content Marketing Performance: A Framework to Measure Real Business Impact.
  • 11. Rebecca Lieb Rebecca Lieb @lieblink Industry Analyst Altimeter Group #CMWorld Presentation: Less-Than-Obvious Content Metrics You Need to Pay Attention to Measure Content Marketing Success - Meaningfully Content can indeed lift sales, but it can achieve so many more measurable, revenue-linked goals associated not only with marketing, but with other business areas, from product development to customer service. The Foundational Principle of Content Strategy There is no content strategy without measurement strategy. Before embarking on a content initiative, irrespective of medium or platform, it's important to know what you want to achieve. •  Is it to drive more awareness? •  Build an audience? •  Encourage people to convert? •  Reduce call center expense by deflecting appropriate queries to a digital channel? Each requires different metrics -- for content, yes, but also to calculate whether you have achieved your goal.
  • 12. “Content Marketing success starts by first determining what critical measurements drive spending decisions.” 
 - Julie Fleischer
  • 13. Julie Fleischer Julie Fleischer @jfly Sr. Director, Data + Content + Media Kraft Foods #CMWorld Presentation: Leveraging First-Party Data From Content & the Impact on Digital ROI Favorite Movie: Cinema Paradiso It’s Time for Content Marketing Measurement Intervention With all of the articles, surveys and agencies calling for an increase in the amount of strategic content that marketers are producing, it would be easy to believe that we have universally arrived at the Era of Content Marketing. The Content Marketing Measurement Lag But not so fast…content marketing measurement lags far behind the common sense belief that if people don’t pay attention to it, they can’t be persuaded by it. Marketing Mix Models, while painfully flawed, have the solid advantage of having been around for decades; they are built into volumetric forecasts. They represent a gross approximation of reality and cannot read small spends, emergent media, or the diverse, intimate, personal, service- driven nuances of content distribution, but they have been around forever, so what CMO is going to forgo their guidance to approve a plan that is wholly ungrounded?
  • 14. Julie Fleischer Julie Fleischer @jfly Sr. Director, Data + Content + Media Kraft Foods #CMWorld Presentation: Leveraging First-Party Data From Content & the Impact on Digital ROI Favorite Movie: Cinema Paradiso It’s Time for Content Marketing Measurement Intervention How on earth can the esoteric, precious, and unproven metrics we’ve been using in content marketing unseed the dominance of Mix? If trust is built on credibility and credibility is built on consistently delivering what you say you’ll deliver, how can convenience metrics ever win? The Basic Tests of Marketing Metrics We’ve been so focused on measuring what’s easy to measure and what’s unique by platform, that we’ve failed the basic tests of marketing metrics: Do they measure what we really need to know? Are they material? Can they predictably guide our businesses? The most important thing you can do as a content marketer is determine what measurements are critical in driving spending decisions at your company and then build an analytic methodology that answers it for content.
  • 15. Todd Wheatland Todd Wheatland @ToddWheatland Managing Director & Head of Strategy King Content #CMWorld Presentation: How Senior Marketers & CMOs Are Structuring Around Content Marketing Favorite Movie: The General Linking Content Marketing Strategy & Results We’ve all seen the research that says organizations without a documented content marketing strategy are most likely to fail. But even those companies with a strategy often either don’t know exactly what to measure against that strategy - or do know, but don’t have the tools to be able to do it. Show Real-Time & Long-Term Results This is a huge issue. The purpose of developing a strategy is to ensure that the business and marketing objectives drive the execution. But if you can’t show content marketers the real-time and long-term results of what they’re doing relative to the business objectives, the strategy loses any relevance. Find the most simple, repeatable processes you can, and make sure you’re getting the measurements that matter – in real-time - to the people working on the execution. That’s how you’ll link strategy to results.
  • 16. Michael Brenner Michael Brenner @brennermichael Head of Strategy NewsCred #CMWorld Presentation: How Senior Marketers & CMOs Are Structuring Around Content Marketing Favorite Movie: Shawshank Redemption A Movie’s Success is Measured by Box Office Sales Measuring the success of your content marketing should simply be based on the same criteria you measure your overall marketing success. For me, that has always included some measure of quantifiable results. Hollywood doesn't care how many people are interested in seeing a movie, watch the trailer, or hit their movie landing page. The real measure of movie success is how many tickets it sells. Create Content Marketing People Want Content Marketing is no different. You need interest. You need to create content people want. You can measure that by traffic. You can measure how good the content is and how much engagement that content receives based on shares, comments, and time spent. But clicks and shares don't pay those movie star salaries, so you have to generate real sales with real people.
  • 17. Michael Brenner Michael Brenner @brennermichael Head of Strategy NewsCred #CMWorld Presentation: How Senior Marketers & CMOs Are Structuring Around Content Marketing Favorite Movie: Shawshank Redemption A Movie’s Success is Measured by Box Office Sales The Real Measure of Content Marketing Success 1. How many people opt-in to your content by "paying" (subscribing) with their email address 2. How many people provide even more personal details for your whitepaper and eBook offers 3. How many people register for your events 4. Best of all, how many people click to buy something Content Marketing success should be measured the same as overall marketing success – through quantifiable results.  
  • 18. “The two simplest ways to measure the value of your content marketing: revenue by post & subscriber.”
 - Andrew Davis
  • 19. Andrew Davis Andrew Davis @tpldrew Author Brandscraping #CMWorld Presentation: Moneyball Marketing: The Simple Science Behind Mega Content Success Favorite Movie: Fletch Measure the Value of Your Content Marketing Instead of just measuring views, followers, fans, likes, retweets, shares, and clicks, the smartest marketers in the world are measuring the value of their content. There are two simple ways to start thinking this way immediately: 1. Revenue Per Post Take the number of pieces of content you’ve distributed this year and divide it by your company’s total revenue for the same period. Now do this for the year prior. Is your revenue per post higher than last year? 2. Revenue Per Subscriber Take the total number of subscribers and divide it by the total revenue generated by those subscribers who became paying customers. Try this for a similar period and compare the two. Is your revenue per subscriber rising?
  • 20. Carla Johnson Carla Johnson @carlajohnson President Type A Communications #CMWorld Presentation: How to Build Content Programs for Internal Audiences That Create Distinguishing Brand Experiences Favorite Movie: The Matrix Attach Meaning to Content Marketing Measurement Content marketers now have the ability to measure a lot of things, but that doesn’t mean that they’re worth measuring. Monitor content performance across all channels. Look for patterns, but keep common sense in play. Just because something performs well one place, doesn’t mean that it’s moving the needle toward overall goals. Think progress, not perfection. Monitor, learn and adjust what you’re doing as you go. Remember what you’re trying to achieve. Not every metric should be up and to the right. If that’s your goal, then you’re risk averse and missing out on grand opportunities for creativity with your content. The point of measurement is for feedback, not to prove that you always make the right decisions
  • 21. Jason Miller Jason Miller @JasonMillerCA Senior Manager, Global Content Marketing LinkedIn #CMWorld Presentation: How to Effectively Outsource Content to Freelancers Favorite Movie: This is Spinal Tap Measure Progress with Traffic Engagement & Quality Leads Referral Traffic. You can measure this super easy, non- complicated metric with Google Analytics. I suggest you focus on non-branded keyword referral traffic, which refers to people who are coming to your site without typing your brand name into the search engine. Engagement. I personally think it’s only a matter of time before engagement plays a role in search engine rankings. The idea with engagement is if your content is encouraging interactions – people sharing it, liking it, plus-one-ing it – that is a sign of relevance. So, the more customer engagement, the more relevant your content is. Higher Quality Leads. How quickly is your content accelerating the funnel or shortening the buying cycle? If your leads are coming in by way of your content and they are much closer to purchasing your product, that’s a clear sign of success.

According to Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs 2014 research, this: •  Only 21% of marketers are successful at tracking their content marketing ROI •  64% of marketers are neutral, or not successful •  A full 15% don’t track ROI at all Can I Open My Eyes Now? I’ll admit, I’m not much of a horror movie fan, but there are few things scarier than managing content marketing investments as a mystery. If you’d like to avoid your CMO's leatherface and chainsaw, make sure all of your content is accountable and measurable to these three things:
  • 24. Lee Odden Lee Odden @leeodden CEO TopRank Online Marketing #CMWorld Presentation: Participation Marketing: How to Co-Create, Optimize & Socialize Content with Influencers Favorite Movie: Braveheart Don’t Let Content Marketing ROI Be Your Horror Movie 1. Attract - How does your content attract readers? How do search, social, publications, subscriptions, advertising, influencers, or events pull them in? 2. Engage - When customers consume your content, what topics do they prefer? What formats and media types (text, video, audio)? How do they interact and react? 3. Convert - What offers do you provide to collect inquiries, subscriptions, downloads, registrations, trials, demos? How effective are you at inspiring readers to take the next step? If you want a real thrill in your content marketing, make sure all of your content is accountable for attracting a target audience, engaging them in a meaningful way and inspiring them to take action. Do that and you’ll find yourself in a safe happy place vs. a leatherface the next time you meet with your CEO.
  • 25. Heidi Cohen Heidi Cohen @heidicohen Chief Content Officer Actionable Marketing Guide #CMWorld Presentation: Moderator: Social Media Track Favorite Movie: When Harry Met Sally Create Actionable Content Marketing Measurement To get your content marketing efforts up in lights within your firm, track your success back to your business objectives by target marketing personas. Roughly one out of five B2B marketers can successfully measure their content’s success according to Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs 2015 research. Organizations tracking ROI perform 17X better than those that didn’t according to Hubspot’s The State of Inbound 2014. Create Content to Meet Business Goals Start by stating your business goals and creating content to achieve those objectives. Make your goals as tangible and measurable as possible to increase your likelihood of success. This translates to adding quantities and time periods. To ensure that your goals are reasonable, create them relative to your past year’s performance.
  • 26. Heidi Cohen Heidi Cohen @heidicohen Chief Content Officer Actionable Marketing Guide #CMWorld Presentation: Moderator: Social Media Track Favorite Movie: When Harry Met Sally Create Actionable Content Marketing Measurement Among the top 5 content marketing goals are: •  Build brand awareness. •  Generate leads. •  Drive sales, cross-sells and upsells. •  Retain customers. •  Grow thought leadership. To improve content measurement, follow these 3 actionable content marketing tips: 1.  Include a call-to-action (aka CTA). Ask prospects to do something you can measure. 2.  Use related landing pages rather than a one-size fits all approach. The more tailored the landing page is to your content, the better it should perform. 3.  Continually test your results. Take what works and find ways to improve your performance.

Marketers can measure topline goals, strategies and tactics. Identify Solid Baselines Measuring all are important, but having solid baselines defined by appropriate research are just as important. This can be accomplished by collecting and interpreting audience, media, competitor and trend data. Where these categories intersect can provide content marketers with an end-to-end roadmap that defines goals, strategies, promotion, execution and measurement.
