Check out Cara Christopher's thoughts on content marketing

When it comes to thinking about content and the buyer’s journey, Cara shares:

"Content is how you're represented in the eyes of your buyers and customers. In a time of AI, it should be authentic, clear, and seen. The more you can hone in on your customer's pain points to educate and build urgency, the better."

She also shares about how to keep your brand fresh over time:

"Start by crafting the journey your customers go through to find, purchase, and build affinity with your brand. Then map the role marketing and sales both play in that journey and continually align. The stronger the alignment, the stronger the experience, the stronger the outcomes."
