Intel's social media strategist for APAC weighs in on the content marketing trends for the year.
"Creating great content is just half the story", says Jamshed Wadia, social media strategist for Intel Asia Pacific.
There's been an emphasis on content marketing in the past few years, but it has only been on marketers' radar in the region as of last year.
An annual Adobe study on digital marketing performance for 2013 revealed that strengthening digital marketing content strategy was the second priority after social optimization or community growth and engagement.
The study pointed out that content strategy wasn't even noteworthy among marketers in the previous year of the 2013 survey.
Watch this video interview as Intel's social media strategist for the region explains why this will be the year of content distribution and how his team will go about making it a priority.
