Justifying investment in content marketing [Infographic]

Convincing your boss to invest in content marketing

2013 is the year for 'content marketing', but as marketers we still need to work hard to convince the budget holders or our bosses to invest time and resources in this area?.

Whether it's sharing content, curating it or interpreting it?  FatJoe have highlighted some statistics (from secondary research), to support your business case in their Infographic.  

Could these stats convince your boss or budget holder?

  • 61% of consumers more likely to buy after reading custom content
  • 90% of consumers find content useful
  • 67% of companies with a blog generate more leads than those without.

Check out our guide and template to making the business case for investment in digital marketing for a more quantitative approach and how to win the emotional arguments too.
