SAN FRANCISCO, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With just 14% of marketers giving their own digital content strategies any kudos for seeing a return on investment, just 5% are focusing their efforts on building relationships in an increasingly digital world driven by social media and digital interactivity, according to a study by Forrester and the Online Marketing Institute.
The report, focusing largely on B2B marketing trends, was based on a survey of 113 marketing executives, 72% of whom said less than half of their marketing staff are engaged directly in content marketing efforts.
From 11-14th August 2014 at the ClickZ Live Digital Marketing Conference being held in San Francisco, OMI CEO and Founder, Aaron Kahlow, will host two fireside chats with famous brands, solution providers and agencies and attempt to address the issue of why marketers are lacking in the right education and skillset to tackle what content marketing strategies work. The sessions will also explore why so many of them fail to see the potential of relationship-building through digital for attracting and retaining more customers than simply focusing on acquisition.
"I'd go as far to say this issue has reached a crisis level. Over the years at OMI we've watched this backlog of skills needed to drive awareness and drive sales through digital grow and grow. Content Marketing is the perfect poster child for this epidemic as we found in our survey with Forrester and BMA and our related Digital Skills and Talent Gap study," Kahlow said.
"Marketing teams are missing the ROI mark, agencies are failing their clients and senior leadership including HR, L&D, are failing their teams in an epic fashion. This is yet another reason I am thrilled to be moderating the keynote panel at the ClickZ Live digital marketing conference and helping unearth how these great companies are the exception to the rule and how we can learn from them."
Highlights from the ClickZ Live San Francisco Agenda include:
- Creating Value by Breaking the Marketing Mold - an opening keynote address by Bonin Bough from Mondelez International
- Collaborate, Engage, Share: The Heart & Soul of Social Media – a fireside chat moderated by Online Marketing Institute Founder and CEO, Aaron Kahlow, with Shannon Sullivan Duffy, Head of Marketing, Direct Response Products, Facebook, Jeanette Gibson, VP, Community & Customer Experience, Hootsuite and Chris Pemberton, Digital Brand Manager, Ghirardelli Chocolate Company
- Mobile Matters - More than You Know: Driving Revenue with Key Mobile Insights – with Greg Stuart, CEO, Mobile Marketing Association
- Reach the Right Customers with Yahoo Gemini – a panel of experts from Yahoo! where delegates will learn how Yahoo makes it easy to get more customers, hear from an advertiser who's seen success, and ask questions directly to the ad product team
- Harnessing the Power of Social Metrics – a solo session with Google Analytics Advocate, Adam Singer

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
