Dear marketers, content is no longer king. Distribution is.

For years, leading marketers have been preaching that “content is king”. Ross Simmonds has a slightly different approach to content marketing. He’s got the numbers to back his claims, so maybe he really is onto something…


Marketing is a field that is ever-changing. If you aren’t going to make the effort to keep up with the trends, then you’re going to be left in the dust like an irrelevant meme. So, damn Daniel…keep up.

During Ross’ Lunch & Learn at Volta, he dissects popular social marketing channels, and exposes the current opportunities for marketers to get the largest and most targeted reach. From turning your LinkedIn connections into sales leads, to effective use of vertical video, to deciding which channel works best for your business…he covers it all.
