Check out Stephanie Brooks' thoughts on content marketing!

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

"When writing content, I fall back on journalism 101: Who are you talking to? What are you trying to say? When is this happening? Where will it be read? Why should someone care? How do they take action? Answering those questions leads to content customers want to read."

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

"By the time a customer talks to us, they've already gone through the awareness and consideration phases and are digging deeper into the details to make a decision. Content should reflect where the buyer is at each stage and make them confident in purchasing your solution."
