The most common types of content created by respondents are blog posts (48% create them), social posts/campaigns (24%), and email campaigns/newsletters (14%).

Some 28% of respondents say it takes between one and three hours, on average, to create a piece of content; 24% of respondents say it takes between four and six hours to create a piece of content.

Some 27% of respondents say they create 1-2 pieces of content per month, on average; 24% create 2-3 pieces per week, on average; and 21% create one piece per week.
