So you understand this idea about every brand being a publisher now. You understand that you need to be creating content as a cornerstone of your marketing. But how do you create the kind of content that's really going to break through the clutter and drive actual business?

She'll share a few key findings of the MarketingProfs and Content Marketing Institute annual content marketing study, as well as looking what the most inspired brands are already doing to create content that's truly epic. She'll share specific ideas you can steal from them to create your own amazing content for your own (newly?) daring brand.
