11 essential content marketing links from Q3 18

  1. 5 lessons we learned from building 250 landing pages

We love this piece, not just as creators of hundreds of landing pages over the years (fist bump to fellow LP folks), but because of the sound advice and the way the piece is constructed.

  1. Now You See It, Now You Don’t: What B2B Brands Can Do With Ephemeral Content

  1. 3 Reasons Why Short-Form Copywriting Is Set to Become Your Next Superpower

Social media is one area where short-form skills rule. And it’s not the only one. (Want to talk landing pages again?) Although we’d also advise a mix, depending on context. Long-form is equally valuable, for lots of reasons.

 

  1. Symantec Wins at Content by Responding to Its Audience

  1. Your Editorial Calendar is Not Your Content Marketing Strategy

And finally, we’ve said the same thing (pretty much) ourselves, but Michele Linn does a good job here of emphasising that your calendar is one of many tactics to get all this right. While your strategy is, well, strategic.
