B2B content marketers in North America are making strides: 42% consider themselves effective, up from 36% last year. Moreover, we also can begin to understand why marketers are feeling more confident: For the first time, we asked marketers whether they have a documented content strategy (44% do) and a person who oversees content marketing strategy (73% do). Our findings tell us that there are distinct differences between those who have a strategy and those who do not. Marketers who do are not only more effective but also less challenged with every aspect of content marketing. Even though we’ve made great strides, the industry is clearly still in the early adoption phase. However, some marketers are seeing substantial success.
