A shared commitment to true content marketing = less time and effort spent on selling the approach and more time which can be spent on developing masterful content strategies and beautiful creative.

But not everyone is convinced about content marketing. Even though it’s the gold standard when it comes to building trust, SEO, brand love… The list goes on.

If you find yourself in a similar position, or even in further need of convincing yourself – here are 6 compelling stats about content marketing to add to your case.
