One of the biggest challenges facing the modern brand and agency is how to support the growth of content marketing. Every brand is utilizing content marketing to some degree. However, a whopping 62% of companies outsource content marketing, according to The Content Marketing Institute, and only 44% of marketers are satisfied with their current agency. The time has come for every agency to ask itself: Will you be one of the content marketing leaders or will you be left behind?
