As 2016 concludes, the biggest conversation that continues to occur is quality vs. quantity in content marketing. We need to continue to scale our content, but as Ardath says, “it isn’t about scaling content, it’s about scaling outcomes.”

The next time you go to produce a piece of content, ask yourself this question: Why it is important to produce this piece of content? For the business, for the customer, for the team.
