LinkedIn: 31 Sophisticated Content Marketing Thought Leaders to Follow
By Lee Odden
The team at LinkedIn Marketing Solutions (client) recently published a fantastic resource for content marketing called The Sophisticated Marketers Guide to Content Marketing for 2016.
At Content Marketing World 2014, LinkedIn’s Jonathan Lister proclaimed that LinkedIn was “All in with content marketing”. While that reference was mostly about the ability for users to publish content on LinkedIn, the content marketing efforts from the team at LinkedIn over the past 2 years has been nothing short of impressive.
This most recent eBook is a great example of depth, design, and utility that also serves as a case study for “big rock” content. Along with smart advice from marketing rock stars Jason Miller and his team, industry thought leaders and influencers are included as well. Bringing in outside expertise to co-create content adds credibility, subject matter expertise and balance to what would otherwise be “brand content” – a smart move.
As a great source of information about content marketing (108 pages) you’ll find: how to develop a content marketing strategy, mapping the buyer’s journey, visual content, influencers, ROI and going global with content – 16 chapters in all. This new eBook for 2016 also includes a great list of content marketing industry experts you can connect with to learn even more.
While my team helped with the content in the ebook and I contributed myself, I first learned of the list after downloading it. There are many familiar content marketing faces included and a few that are new to me. To be counted among them is an honor and I am happy to share the full list below:
