This post is to share the name of a blogger I came across today, that at first instance impressed me with her content.    I’ve read many over the years, this is one of those ‘pearls’ that I find, and I’ve shared her profile link so that you too can subscribe and follow her writing.

Take a minute, look at her profile on the Business2Community site and I think you’ll agree.

B2B Marketing: 9 Ideas for Solving Your Biggest Content Challenges

http://bit.ly/YYWRTy thanks to http://contentmarketinginstitute.com for this nicely done overview.  I really stopped when I read that the INTEL crew plans a YEAR in advance on their calendar “Not surprisingly, enterprise organizations are far more challenged with lack of integration across marketing than their small-business counterparts.
