44% of marketing managers struggle to measure content ROI
This inability to measure the ROI of content marketing motovated me to write the leading content marketing ROI guide for Smart Insights http://bit.ly/content--roi-guide, which gives in-depth guidance on how to calculate the cost of content marketing and measure the return on investment.
In these slides I outline the simple yet effective costing model, and show you how, by breaking out the component costs of content into labour, production and distribution, you can work out your content marketing cost, which provides the basis for evaluating your content marketing ROI. I also demonstrate the lag between content marketing creation and the pay back and how you need to keep focused on great content creation and distribution, until your content marketing ROI is positive.
This presentation comes from the Content Marketing Essentials webinar series I produced for Idio, the content intelligence platform, built to help marketers think and act more strategically with their content marketing.
