B2B Enterprise Content Marketing: 2013 Benchmarks, Budgets, and Trends—North America

  1. B2B Enterprise Content Marketing: 2013 Benchmarks, Budgets, and Trends – North America
  2. 2 FOREWORD Hello Enterprise Marketers! Welcome to B2B Enterprise Content Marketing: 2013 Benchmarks, Budgets, and Trends—North America. When we recently surveyed 1,416 business-to-business (B2B) marketers from North America, we found that B2B enterprise marketers, when compared with the entire sample:  Use more content marketing tactics  Outsource content creation more often  Are more often challenged with lack of integration across marketing. There also are similarities. No matter what size their company:  Approximately half of all B2B marketers plan to increase their content marketing budgets over the next 12 months  Nearly all marketers segment their content in at least one way  Just over 30% rate their organizations as effective at content marketing. Despite the struggle with effectiveness, marketers from companies of all sizes appear to believe that continued investment in content marketing will pay off: Approximately half of those who rate their organizations as least effective are planning to increase their content marketing spend by nearly as much as their more successful peers are. In this report, we take a closer look at how B2B enterprise marketers approach content marketing when compared with their B2B peers overall.* We think you’ll find the results interesting. On with the content marketing revolution… Joe Pulizzi Founder Content Marketing Institute *See page 19 for study demographics.
