  4. 4. “A majority of Millennials, 62 percent, have reported that when they see or read about a brand through websites or on social media they feel a connection and loyalty with that company. Additionally, a third of them are willing to buy a product if the brand’s content… feels authentic and truthful.” - David Koji, CEO of Evolvor “When it comes to content, people don’t want to feel like they are sold to; they want to be involved…They want authentic communication that educates them about the topics they are interested in.” -Kevin Price The Price of Business

Everything from conducting research to actually creating content to analyzing its results...” “Content marketing may be a long-term strategy, but the sooner you start investing in it, the sooner you’ll start seeing the benefits – and conversely, the longer you wait to get started, the longer it will take.”
