Modern marketers turn to content to accomplish a variety of goals. Some create collateral to inform, engage, and even support lead gen and account based marketing—or, in many cases, a combination of the three. Inefficient content marketing is expensive, and a winning strategy also mixes in smart curation and syndication strategies. A new report from SalesBox has brought us deeper insight into the latter: The ever-important role of content syndication as part of a comprehensive content and lead-focused strategy.
