Technology and data are sometimes accused of killing creativity within B2B copywriting, but is it a wrongful conviction?

In the newest episode of Good Copy, Bad Copy, SEO expert Tom Telford from 3WhiteHats explains how search engine data can be a helpful content creation tool, and what copywriters can gain when they keep search engine optimisation in mind.

You’ll also hear Fiona and David talk about their experiences balancing data and creativity. Key discussion points include:

  • What is the real killer of creativity?
  • Has creativity declined since the golden age of advertising?
  • Can technology help us to be more creative?
  • What does SlideShare have in common with skateboarding?

Finally, Fiona introduces her newest addition to the B2B Content Hall of Fame. It’s Salesforce… for everything they’ve produced.

Thanks again to Tom for talking with us.
