We talk about content marketing a lot on the HighQ blog; it’s where marketing is at right now and only seems to become more and more relevant as customers, clients and audiences spend more time online consuming content digitally.
But it’s important to remember that it’s not just written content, like blog posts, ebooks or case studies that are valuable to existing and potential clients.
