CMO Council Study on Content Marketing

The CMO Council study (along with affiliate, Content ROI Center) produced an infographic called "Lead Flow That Helps You Grow" focused on demand generation strategy.

It features perspectives from both qualitative interviews with marketing leaders at Informatica, Thermo Fisher Scientific, OpenText, CA Technologies and IBM, and key findings from a survey of marketing leaders across many industry sectors."
