At its core, content marketing is not about pushing products the way traditional advertising does. It’s about educating, building trust, and creating life-long fans of your brand – and, ultimately, creating revenue. This session will help you understand how to balance the need for thought leadership and product awareness. You’ll hear compelling case studies illustrating the difference between a thought leadership claim and a product claim. You’ll also gain an understanding of how content marketing leaders manage cross-functional teams to develop both and overcome potential challenges and risk.


  • How to develop a cross-functional content board to discuss strategy regularly.
  • How to ground claims with data.
  • How to have a discussion with executive sponsors about their appetite for risk.
