As the old philosophical question asks "if a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
As part of a content marketing campaign it is of course great to produce awesome content. But if no-one actually sees it, shares it, or goes on to find out more - what is the point?
There is of course Google - if your content is good quality it could bring in organic search traffic - and you can also use social media channels, mailing lists and similar.
But what if we want to guarantee our content gets seen? What if we want to achieve both a measurable ROI, and a specific amount of potential users/sales prospects that will view our content?
This is where well targeted content discovery networks and paid social media platforms can be extremely useful.
