Infographic: only 28% of brands are able to measure the ROI of content marketing

Almost two-thirds (63 per cent) of brands now have a dedicated content marketing budget, research from Bite has found, with 43 per cent of those surveyed saying content marketing was a board priority for their company.

It was discovered that 61 per cent of marketing leaders said they spent just half a day or less on content marketing related activities, with 71 per cent of brands producing social media content.

Video content was produced by 30 per cent, seen by 12 per cent as the most effective for their business. Infographics were produced by 23 per cent of companies, and were chosen by 10 per cent as the most effective for their business.

The research was carried out by Redshift Research, which surveyed 100 marketing decision makers, on behalf of communications, content and community agency Bite as part of its Stop Content Pollution campaign.
