A1: Storytelling takes your content and makes it a compelling read/watch. #CMWorld

Showing value is important, but our community warns marketers not to become consumed by metrics.

A7: Content marketing is a long game w/many moving stories. Obsessing over ROI on a story is a waste of time. #CMWorld #bigpicture
