Several key items were covered. Understanding the purpose of each piece of content, knowing what point in the funnel your content is targeting, measuring content performance, and understanding the different options for distribution. These professionals brought a widely differing viewpoint on content generation. It was interesting though that even though the markets and types of information vary widely among the panel member, the basic principles still apply:
