Measuring & Setting SMART Marketing Goals for Your Best Year Yet
Apr 18, 2018
How effective is your marketing strategy? That's a relatively straightforward question, but one the answer to which appears to elude the lion's share of marketers.
According to Hubspot, for example, an alarming 55% of B2B marketers in a recent survey confessed that they didn't know what content marketing "success or effectiveness" would look like. Only 32% said they had a "documented content marketing strategy," and just 28% hadn't even taken the time to construct an editorial mission statement.
Those are alarming admissions, especially when you consider that those same marketers are spending about one of every three marketing dollars on content marketing. Think about that: thousands of businesses are spending massive amounts of money to do something the results of which they can't effectively assess.
