Content marketing is one of the key elements of digital marketing today. In times when something can go viral one day, and drop into oblivion the next, it's not easy to grab attention online and get best results from digital marketing campaigns.

75% of marketers have recognized that and are investing more in their content marketing campaigns, and plan to work on creating more high quality content in general. To underline the importance even more, it's worth noting that 70% of people want to learn about a brand via quality articles, rather than the usual adverts.

In this, we're referring to TV ads, to hard copy magazines and newspapers, direct mail - all of these options can still have a place and be effective, and should not be overlooked.
