  • Content Length: Consumed on multiple channels, equipment, and platforms
  • Curiosity: Gives info to get customers to care, explore new things, drive results

Quotes from Amy Littleton:

“Even the way that we search for news and information in our personal lives, in business, you’re looking for news and information, and you can get that from multiple sources.”

“The first thing you would do is lose trust with your audience if you put out crappy content. You’re not going to get people to want to come back to you for information if the information you put out is really a marketing piece disguised as thought leadership.”

“Data can come from anywhere. I think your own curated data, third-party data, information that you’ve found that is already publicly available, and any combination of that, can help you to inform a thought leadership piece.”

“It’s about credibility. You want your piece to have credibility.”
