“Content marketing is a waste of time.”

Sound familiar? It very well might, especially if you work for a B2B company. No one likes to invest in initiatives that don’t seem to be paying off, but according to the latest research, less than half of B2B marketers using content marketing feel that it is effective.

Marguerite McNeil’s recent piece for the American Marketing Association entitled, “Beyond Boredom: 5 Tips for Creating Engaging B-to-B Content” lays out great advice for how to avoid losing your audience and creating more engaging B2B content. Follow her advice, and you’ll be well-primed to boost your content marketing effectiveness in the months to come.
