Use Quick Insights and join the 30% who use content effectively

by Widen Marketing, March 29, 2016

Stop for a second and consider some important statistics. According to the Content Marketing Institute, an overwhelming 66% of marketers don’t know what makes their content successful, or “performant”. In addition to that, 70% don’t think their teams are using content as effectively as they could be. In the absence of data to make content decisions, many marketers respond by making more content. But more content doesn’t always mean it’s necessary or quality.

It doesn’t have to be like that. Quick Insights, the latest feature from the Media Collective Insights team, gives you visibility into content performance so you can reuse the good stuff … and ditch the not-so-good stuff.

Everyone has an opinion about how many and what type of assets are right for this particular campaign, yet no one agrees. You’re not brainstorming, you’re guessing. And guessing rarely leads to strategic marketing that aligns with your brand’s growth targets. Media Collective's new analytics tool, set to launch in our next release, takes the guesswork out of it, and gives you the cold hard facts you need to make important decisions.
