How Much Do People Trust Your Content?

Brian Sutter, Forbes

Don’t believe everything you see on the internet – surely you’ve heard that refrain before. True, much of the things that are written on the internet are neither factchecked nor run past an editor before it is published. For every one reputable piece of content, there could be a dozen sites that push untrustworthy or questionable content.

The question is, then, how much do people trust what you produce? Find out here.

Discover Where Your Competitors Are Beating You Online

Scott Lambert, HubSpot

Competition in business is not necessarily a bad thing – in fact, it can often be healthy for consumers. It is a vital part of the free enterprise economic system.

Mike Strayer, MarketingProfs

6 Times Less Was More in Content Marketing

Patrick Burke, Content Marketing Institute

I’ll never forget something my high school biology teacher told my class to focus on during our exams – K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Stupid). Though apparently insulting, it reminded us all that we could get a lot of mileage out of brief, simple, well-developed ideas.

The same goes for content marketing – less can actually translate to more. In many cases, reducing a lengthy idea to an easily digestible visual piece of content may be better than blowing it out.
