Check out Caroline Goles's thoughts on content marketing

When it comes to incorporatING the right tone of voice into writing, Caroline shares:

"A vital topic, in the world of CoPilot & ChatGPT. Tone should reflect the voice of your customers, so listening is the first job. Your brand should inform, as well. Lastly, speak to a singular audience - your ICP are not all gathered in a room, somewhere, together."

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

"Brand manifests your "why" to the world. It should keep pace with your mission. Customers grant brand meaning, so keep the voices that represent it fresh. The global lexicon is both harmonizing and evolving, so keep the brand expression apace with the global voice, tone, tenor."

Caroline explains how marketers should be thinking about content and the buyers’ journey:

"As we know, 85-90% of customers, at any moment, are not in a buy cycle. So, for the majority, it is creating curiosity. Content is a conversation starter, an interest 'piquer.' Your content is your product, for most of your TAM. How can it create the "come back"?"
