The difference between content creation and content marketing is the strategy behind the content. Anyone in your company can create content in their area of expertise but it is the intentionality behind the content that takes the consumer on a journey through your funnel, ultimately bringing them to the intended outcome. Today we are joined by Nicole Pytel, VP of Content Marketing at Firebrand as she gives us the insider perspective about common mistakes companies are making when it comes to their content marketing. This week, episode 17 of the FiredUp! podcast is about content marketing audits!
