Check out Jillian Swift's thoughts on content marketing

When it comes to incorporating customer pain points to content, Jillian shares:

"Great content starts with insights gained along the customer journey. If we understand the why and their needs throughout the journey, we can create content that is purposeful in building a relationship, not a transaction."

She also shares how marketing can support sales:

"Marketing & Sales is a partnership. We are united by the same goal - customer success - our paths are adjacent and perpendicular, always ending with our customer. There’s something magical about how we get there playing to both our strengths, aligned and together."
