As marketers entering into content marketing, you might be asking yourself: What am I going to write about? How am I going to organize our content marketing operation? These two question fall into the planning stage of building and operating your content marketing machine.
Last week, Kapost CEO, Toby Murdock, and Marketo’s Jason Miller, discussed each of the the seven stages of building and operating your content marketing machine. The big takeaway for this stage of the content marketing machine is to find your sweetspot.

This “spot” is the intersection between your customers’ interests and your unique expertise as an organization.
