The old saying “Quality not quantity is alive and kicking… if you don’t provide any value for readers you are better off holding back on hitting that post button because no one is going to hit the Like button when you do.

B2C Content Marketing in 2013

In 2013, as Instagram, Pinterest and other multimedia social networks grow, you’ll see more and more B2C brands using social media to produce and share beautiful photos, sophisticated comics and other visual aids, and brilliant TV-level videos.

This is an eye-opener for those who are still on the fence about content marketing. Most successful marketers are those who invested the most resources on trying new tactics to produce compelling content.
