Whether in life or in marketing, sometimes it makes sense to keep to the old methods. This is especially crucial to remember when the tried-and-true strategies are just as effective (if not more) as they’ve ever been.
Now consider the recent spike of industry experts arguing that the era of traditional content marketing is nearly over. The growing popularity of videos and infographics over the past few years may have contributed to these hot takes. That being said, a closer look at the numbers suggest that this popular conclusion is quite far from the truth.
Turns Out Content Is Still King
The data actually suggests the very opposite: that content marketing is more important than ever. As you can see, your competitors are already ramping up their ability to deliver engaging, high-quality content to your audience:
- The average length of time that digital marketing specialists spend per blog post has jumped from 2 hours and 30 minutes to 3 hours and 15 minutes, according to Orbit Media.
- 85% of marketers surveyed by the Content Marketing Institute noted that high-quality content was the leading driver of their success over the past year.
