We surveyed marketers like you to get their eedback: what did theythink was hot or not? We asked them to pick “your top 5 marketingtactics” rom the list o 42. As a result, we’re presenting the 42ranked by their relative popularity.
Just a ew months ago, Junta42 and MarketingPros collaborated ona comprehensive report, based on a survey o 1,000 marketers,called 
.Thanks to their work, we’ve been able to draw resh insightson how marketers use content marketing. In many instances, asyou’ll see, there’s an interesting tension between the two surveys’results.
To shake things even urther, we’ve tweaked the ormat. Instead obullet lists suggesting or whom a given tactic may be a “cool tool”or “not so hot,” we’re presenting statistics rom B2B ContentMarketing and unashamedly biased opinions – based on ourpersonal and client experiences – regarding the meaning and useo various tactics.
Finally, we’ve traded some o the less popular content options ornew ones that our survey respondents suggested. You’ll nd thedebut options towards the back o the ebook.With a great big blast o gratitude to our readers and to the survey par-ticipants who have made this year’s edition o

Remember “Point/Counterpoint”on 60 Minutes? Deloitte’s takena lesson rom one o networktelevision’s most successul“news magazine” programs byposting weekly debates, pro andcon, on hot business and nanceissues. Instead o the sameold, same old Deloitte Debatesprovide lively and thoughtuldiscussions. (Kudos to EricaDipyatic rom Deloitte or therecommendation.)Who says that servicecontractors don’t blog? Well,Conditioned Air rom Naples,Florida, rejects all that hot air.Their Home Comort blog hasbecome the center o theironline strategy. Conditioned Airocuses on solving problems thattheir customers have with theirheating and air conditioning,attracting customers andprospects through searchengines and through socialmedia tools, such as Twitter andFacebook.

Shorthand or “Weblog,” the blog oers an easy way to present brie chunkso requently rereshed Web content. Backed with easy-to-use technologiesor syndication (e.g. RSS), comments and trackbacks, blogs are oten the blaz-ing centers o social media solar systems that can incorporate sophisticatedSEO strategies and community-building campaigns.

Encourage conversations: even “bad” comments can be an opportunityor developing good customer relations.
Be a good netizen: participate on other blogs as well as your own.Develop a Top 15 hit list where you need to be “hanging out.
Loosen up. Authenticity trumps perection when connecting with readers.

In the
B2B Content Marketing 
report, blogging was the 6th most popularcontent choice, behind social media, articles, in-person events, enewslettersand case studies. But o even greater interest is the report’s discovery o a“condence gap”: only 40% o their respondents rated blogs as eective,while a considerable 60% said it was “less eective/ineective.
