In fact, there is currently a content marketing arms race in play around this very topic. Don’t believe me? Can you answer yes to any of the following questions?

2. Tweeting to save the family farm?
3. Writing, shooting photos and video, and podcasting to demonstrate that you are the “thought-leader,” “trusted advisor,” “expert guru” and “growth hacker” for your industry?
Yes, I thought so, and features like “Who’s Viewed Your Profile” on LinkedIn provide guidance on whether or not your profile is being searched or reviewed by your peers as result of your efforts. A new truck or sports car is going to cost tens of thousands of dollars. The information below was recently presented at an American Marketing Association SIG meeting.
