8 Bad Content Marketing Habits Marketers Must Stop Now

Content marketing ROI. Every marketer is talking about it. However, truth is very few actually have it. Few know how to achieve it or measure it. Most marketers know how to throw content marketing up on an Instagram or Facebook virtual wall. However, if you ask them simple questions such as “what are your goals for that piece of content?” Or “what was the ROI on your last content marketing campaign?” you often receive the shrugged shoulders, eye roll or an annoyed “I don’t really know.”

Creating content is the easy part. Developing content that actually helps you achieve your business and marketing goals requires more planning, knowledge and effort. Unfortunately, many marketers like to take the easy route, yet they’ll be the first to complain that social media doesn’t work.
