Craig Hodges on strategy:

“I think, without fail, there’s a necessity to have a strategy. You’ve got to know where you’re going. You’ve got to know where you want to be. Now, there’s those crazy stats that say about 30% of people embark who on a content-marketing program have a strategy. Those 30% are 60% more likely to have success in their program. It goes without saying you need that. That’s a great starting point. I think you also need to have some sort of methodology to get a return on investment. There’s too many white elephants in content marketing. I think that we need to have a plan and an outcome.”
