So you say you have a blog and your content marketing strategy documented. Well, that’s excellent, because our Content Marketing Institute/MarketingProfs annual research shows that you’re ahead of the curve. But, many brands are taking the leap into video production studios to distribute their own (and others’) content. Why is this important? Are you a good candidate for this? How do you know if this is what your customers want and need? These questions and more were addressed in this week’s #CMWorld Twitter chat with Paul Barron, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Foodable TV.

A few highlights of the chat are below. Visit this week’s Storify for even more great conversations on this topic.

Let’s start with a basic question: Are you a brand doing content marketing well, or are you a media company? How do you differentiate the two?

A1: The real difference is moving your #brand message from selling to telling. The story has to become the champion. #CMWorld #marketing

Great! Now that we’ve established that, how have you taken your distribution efforts from effective to exceptional?

A7: Never one & done. We re-purpose, tweak & share content many diff ways at many diff times Data drives sophisticated distribution #CMWorld

A7: Quality and story will always win, and in most cases, will make up for other weaknesses. #CMWorld #ContentMarketing #Media
