Marketing – more than just content

Marketing – together with sales and services – is in the process of transformation. Workflows need to be rearranged and especially content needs to be thought through anew. Customers don’t care about your point of view anymore, they want content that speaks directly to them and their needs.

Which strategies lead to success depends on the customer. You need to turn content marketing into a strategy and not just a buzzword.
