Announcing DivvyHQ’s 2017 Research Report: Content Planning Challenges, Trends & Opportunities

 In Content Marketing, Editorial Planning

It doesn’t matter whether you work in B2B or B2C marketing, the way your audience consumes content today won’t be the same tomorrow. The technology available is simply moving too fast. To avoid becoming obsolete, we must evolve. The ways in which we disseminate information, news, media, products, or (anything else for that matter) must keep pace with consumers.

But how do content professionals plan for change, when we don’t exactly know what changes are on the horizon? It’s a question that plagues many marketers today.

It’s also exactly why we set out to execute our first ever original research initiative, 2017 Research Report: Content Planning Challenges, Trends & Opportunities.

In this free downloadable research report, we uncovered staggering content planning trends including:

  • 28% of marketers do not have regular content planning meetings
  • Just 7% of marketers meet all of their content planning objectives
  • 80% of successful planners use online planning tools

In addition to polling top marketers on what’s working and what’s not, we reached out to leading content marketing minds who weighed in on how to best address these challenges.
