By combining quality content creation and strategic distribution, you can harness the full potential of B2B content marketing to propel your business to new heights. That’s how I concluded my first post analyzing the Content Marketing Institute’s annual study (the 2024 study). I was talking about creation and distribution. Obviously, when it comes to planning a winning content strategy, you have to stack the odds in your favor and not put all your eggs in one basket. This means creating quality content and, above all, distributing it well. And not like: “I use social networks as a priority for ..read more

The time for creating content for the sake of creating content is more than dead. You can still do it if you don’t take the time to read this post. I’m going to show you how your content strategy needs to be reviewed and supported on a regular basis and with fresh eyes. First, there’s the question of why and for whom we create content, and how we distribute it to reach our “who”. What do we expect in return for our investment?

Yes, I know, the “meme” below will go out of fashion in no time. But we can’t pass up the opportunity to use it for educational purposes! So, have you heard of Google SGE (Search Generative Experience)? At the time I write these lines, maybe not. In 6-9 months, probably yes! In other words, it’s coming… Google SGE is going to impact the way we do our searches, and that’s going to have a negative impact on your good old Google Analytics statistics. In fact, the advent of Google SGE will revolutionize online search, ushering in a new era of contextualization and intuition in information discove ..read more

This post was born out of a long reflection over the weekend on content marketing. But also about blog, search engine optimization (SEO) and artificial intelligence. In content marketing, do we write for search engines or for readers? And are we increasingly turning to artificial intelligence (the ChatGPTs of this world) to write our blog posts, as a way of wasting less time, making our lives easier, taking shortcuts? Which led me to the following: a comparison between two texts generated by AI and one by a human (yours truly), all three answering the same “prompt”: “What are the most importan ..read more

22 years ago, I wrote the first Exo article (the “B2B” was added the following year) entitled “Integrating the Internet into your business strategy”. Rereading it, I was struck by the similarities between the integration of the Internet into business and what we’re seeing now with the arrival of artificial intelligence. In the first year of Exo’s creation, our goal was to integrate the Internet into companies’ business strategies, with a particular focus on marketing. At the time, Web or digital marketing, as we know it today, was not yet widespread. It was more commonly referred to as Interne ..read more

Once upon a time, in a small industrial town, there was a factory like no other.
