What distinguishes good content from great content? It's a fine line to walk on and like so many times when it comes to marketing, it is usually not an objective opinion but depends on your own expectations, needs and values.
Content Marketing vs. Advertising
When you listen to marketers talking about great content you rarely hear that they worked with exceptionally talented content producers, copywriters and designers to make their content stand out amongst others. What you usually also don't hear is the amount of work that goes into research, finding influencers that are trusted by the community and the consumer environment. Only if this is done right, you can brief the producers, copywriters and designers or start working yourself on an emotional message for the consumers and not the brand.
