What Content Marketers Can Learn From Legendary Rock Bands

May 2, 2012  

What separates a legendary rock band that plays in sold-out stadiums from a one-hit wonder warbling at the local fair? According to Peter Krainik, writing in Forbes, one difference—besides the obvious (fame and fortune)—is that successful bands are dedicated to both playing what the audience wants to hear and sharing new works.

Here are three of the things he says rock bands can teach content marketers.
