Why isn’t it working when we are trying so hard?

Our content marketing efforts aren’t working. Shockingly, just 30% of B2B marketers rate their organisations as “effective” at content marketing. (i)

Their customers aren’t too happy about it either: “86% of buyers say content is neither useful, relevant, nor aligned with needs of people in the buying decision” (ii). What’s more, 79% of IT pros don’t complete forms for fear of the inevitable sales call follow up. (iii)

Are we making it too difficult and convoluted for customers to engage with us?
Has the lustre of content marketing won off?
