Radix Copycast Episode 21: 10 trends that rocked B2B copywriting and content marketing in 2014

In this episode, we discuss 10 of the biggest trends in B2B content marketing and copywriting to break out in 2014 and take a punt on the trends that will be chasing us into 2015.


 

In 2014 we’ve seen predictions of an impending content shock, an increased appreciation for well written copy, stirrings of discontent with tried and tested formats (like eBooks) and a lot more play out in B2B marketing.

Overall, 70% of B2B marketers are creating more marketing content than they were a year ago. And as you’ll hear when we discuss the continued adoption of marketing automation – it definitely seems like brands are producing more content to feed their automation machines. But is this content always informative and interesting, and created with the customer in mind?

In this episode, Fiona and I analyse 10 copywriting and content marketing trends that have rocked B2B this year. And not all of them may be with us in 2015.
