Check out Michael Roberts' thoughts on content marketing!

When it comes to writing content that customers want to read, Michael shares:

"The first step is to listen intently to the silent whispers of your customers' needs and wants, and not to make assumptions. Understanding their pain points and desired business outcomes helps content resonate, and that's at the center of content marketing."

He also shares how marketing can support sales:

"Marketing lays the groundwork and primes the audience with the right messaging. Marketing creates a nurturing process to find the right people that raise their hands and are interested in talking with a sales person. That's all sales people can ask for in marketing."

Michael explains what marketers can do in order to tap into the power of AI and become more effective:

"To harness the transformative power of AI, marketers must embrace innovation as their compass, leveraging data-driven insights to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of consumer behavior. Embrace it or be left behind."
