Having a steady stream of content is more important than ever. Podcasts, blogs, videos, communities – all are very different types of content. And there is no such thing as “sharing” in the content realm.
These days, content marketing is more art than science. That’s why Joe Pulizzi put together a blog and business bookmarking site Junta42 to highlight the good, the bad and the ugly of content marketing, as well as to list the top content marketers. The list, called the Junta42 Top Marketing Blogs, includes Buzz Marketing for Technology, ranked #5.
Joe Pulizzi is founder and chief content officer for Junta42, a content marketing/custom publishing community search engine. Junta42, launched in 2007, offers a “digg-like” service for marketers, publishers and association professionals responsible for content marketing initiatives.
Joe is also president of Z Squared Media LLC, a content marketing consulting firm for marketers and publishers. Z Squared Media works with clients to create better content that ultimately helps generate new and lasting revenue streams.
