Posted on May 31, 2016 by

That should be your first question before you even look at possible options to support your marketing strategy.

Yes! As we’ve learned time and time again, not only do you need a content marketing strategy, but it needs to be documented. If you do this, you’ll feel significantly less challenged with every aspect of content marketing, and will be able to use content marketing tactics and social media channels much more effectively. With a clear, documented strategy, you’ll be able to justify spending a higher percentage of your marketing budget on content marketing.

The digital generation has no patience for disappointment in user experience. They want it now, they want it their way. We’ve identified six issues that are particularly annoying for mobile users, and any one of these mistakes could drive visitors away from your site.

6 Mistakes that Turn Mobile Customers Away
