Check out Sam Stiles's thoughts on content marketing!

When it comes to creating engagement using marketing, Sam shares:

"It is all about building trust by attracting, engaging, and delighting the customer at every step of the buyer's journey. If you don't get companies to buy on trust, you'll never keep them engaged longer than the first conversion."

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

"Here's how I like to say it: "You gotta risk it to get the biscuit." In other words... TRY NEW THINGS! If you don't have leadership buy-in on the risk factor then you'll never discover how much potential your brand actually has!"

Sam also explains how marketing can support sales:

"Marketing and sales teams must be synchronized at every level in order to have effective and efficient revenue generation. The #1 thing a marketing team can do to support sales is to consistently ask for relevant and timely feedback from prospects and customers!"
