Programme 3: Content Marketing Essentials

Introduction
The way we market has fundamentally changed.

We have moved from broad broadcast ad campaigns that interrupt, to targeted, personalised programmes that give value and engage. And at the heart of this is content marketing, the provision of valuable, relevant branded content designed to drive lasting, meaningful and mutually rewarding relationships with an audience.
