At Content Marketing World, my good friend Ann Handley, coauthor of Content Rules and Chief Content Officer of MarketingProfs, presented a number of innovative examples of content marketing. The following are some of the B2B examples she shared in her presentation. Any metrics or results came from Ann’s presentation or published information. These examples are meant to inspire B2B marketers to think bigger than just basic written or video content. And bigger doesn’t mean spending more money.
Content marketing means you consistently create and share information that is
- Packed with utility
- Seeded with inspiration
- Honestly empathetic
to attract customers to you.
Here are 7 examples of innovative B2B content marketing:
