"Content marketing strategies must serve the customer first, not the marketer. In order to do that, content has to actually engage people with useful information, not lecture them. One powerful way to do that is to partner with the digital influencers consumers are engaging with way before they land on a brand website.
Influencers are those with key audiences on blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube who are sharing their experiences, including those that involve brands and products they use. They aren’t just creating content, they are starting conversations, which is the most powerful way to influence. So why are these digital influencers so vital to a brand’s overall content strategy?"
