Check out Katie McAdam's thoughts on content marketing!

When it comes to incorporating the right tone of voice into writing, Katie shares:

"For me, the most important thing is using an authentic tone of voice, as if you were speaking to a friend. Personally I prefer prefer ingesting information when the tone leans more casual and direct, and that's what I try to employ across the marketing team."

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

"Outside perspective is so critical, especially if you've been with the same company for some time. Tapping into new employees, consultants, customer interviews, and outside networking groups are a great way to help us see things from a different perspective."

Katie explains what she does to help marketing teams understand and incorporate customers pain points into content:

"This is where a proper roll out of buyer personas goes a long way. Taking the time to educate the entire marketing department on our buyers and their pain points ensures we're putting out content that is relevant to our target audience."
