Garbage In, Garbage Out: How to Rescue Your B2B Content Research from the Same Sad Metrics that Everyone Else Uses

Derek Gleason

Pick a site or topic. Export the most linked or shared content. Try to replicate the stuff with the best numbers. Be disappointed by the results. Rinse. Repeat. That’s no way to do content marketing. To break through in the B2B world, your content research has to do two things: Find the stuff that really turned heads—not just the so-so content published on big sites. Identify a unique angle that makes sense for your brand and resonates with your audience. Getting better at those two things can be as simple as adding a column or two to a spreadsheet, or starting your content research with humans—not URLs. In his talk, Derek shows you several ways to do it.
