Why Read This Brief

To most technology vendors, agencies, publishers, and bloggers, content marketing's all about businesses generating relevant traffic to their websites and then turning that net new traffic into business. Forrester data indicates that marketing leaders see something more valuable from content marketing — a means of maintaining efficiency as their channels to market multiply. In other words, top-line customer growth is a valuable product of content marketing but is eclipsed in most marketers' minds by its value to the bottom line. This report shares data based on a recent survey of content marketing platform (CMP) users and explores how marketers aim to transfer content marketing's increasing share of marketing budget into business outcomes.
