Six content marketing trends to watch this year (Econsultancy)

The importance of Content Marketing across business sectors and organizations of all sizes continues to grow year over year. When we surveyed marketers in October in association with Outbrain we found 90% of respondents believing that it will become more important over the next 12 months.

The ones that nibble away at your time and leave you wondering what the hell you did all day, and how you ended up with page after page of purple links but not one thing scratched off your to-do list. For some, it’s Hacker News. For others, it’s metafilter or Facebook. Hell, for some, it’s probably TechCrunch. For me, it’s Reddit. “You Should Probably” is a Firefox extension that tries to wean you off those sites by nagging at you with better uses for your time.
