      The topic of Social Media Influence has really taken off since we first published this list.

  • Content Conversations: Content Marketing Predictions for 2018

    Last year around this time, we asked reached out to a series of content experts (many of which are included in this post), to ask them for their top content prediction for 2017.

  • 4 Search Trends That Made Waves in 2017

    For the past two decades, the pinnacle of search sophistication was talking to a search engine like you’re Tarzan. “What are the best hiking boots for men?” became “best hiking boots men.” “How many ounces are there in a pound?” became “number ounces pound.” Question words, articles, adjectives, or any such linguistical fanciness would confuse the humble algorithms.

  • 5 Outdated Content Marketing Tactics (And What to Do Instead)

    Can I interest anyone in an iPhone? No, not the iPhone 8 or X. I’m talking about this bad boy: No takers? But it has a 320X480 pixel screen, 128 Mb of RAM, and a single 2-megapixel camera! Back in 2007, this was the hottest phone on the market. People lined up in front of stores just to get their hands on one. You get the point: State of the art quickly becomes laughably outdated.

  • How 5 B2B Brands Are Using Snapchat and Instagram Stories

    B2B brands are usually slow to jump on the latest social media craze train, and with good reason. Their audience might not even be on those social media networks. For example, Snapchat was originally full of teenagers and controversy — not a great place to grow brand awareness or share thought leadership. But my, oh my, how far we’ve come.
