“It’s been shown repeatedly in studies that marketing that uses a journalistic format is very effective. The approach confers credibility, accessibility, and trust. It’s perfect for research or thought leadership. It’s focused not on what the marketer has to sell, but information of value to the reader.”
Tony Silber ”Content Marketing Conundrum,” MediaPost, 2022
