In 2017, we thrive on information. Indeed, we are living in the information age. This has inevitably led to the emergence of new approaches to advertising – in particular, content marketing. This exciting and effective form of inbound marketing shows no sign of slowing, however, some find it difficult to discern its impact. 32% of B2B marketers say they have a documented content marketing strategy, but 55% say they are unclear on what content marketing success or effectiveness looks like (..Read More
I speak with many B2B CMOs who tell me online marketing isn’t relevant when it comes to B2B. Such companies stick to traditional methods such as trade shows, cold calling and god forbid – traditional media such as billboards or even TV.

You have an idea for a startup, you’ve put together a team and now you want to find an investment. Your idea is important but your potential investors will probably be even more interested in figuring out whether or not you’re aware of who exactly your competition is.

Recently I took part in a think tank for a SaaS product group that was struggling with pricing issues. The issue at hand was that the product team was having a hard time getting users to opt for what they identified as the best offering out of three possible package tiers for their users.
The product’s standard tier package was originally priced at a fixed cost of $10/mo plus additional usage based costs. Further on down the road, they added a lower tier with limited features. The usage..Read More
Facebook just introduced a new video watching service and considering the direction the internet has been taking in the past couple of years, it shouldn't come as a big surprise to anyone.
