Many marketers still don’t understand the role of bloggers

Far too many brands dismiss bloggers as hobbyists added to a low tier on a media list merely to be spammed with marketing emails. 

This is a short-sighted attitude and, rather than a bolt-on, a bloggers’ role in the customer decision journey and as part of a link-building strategy needs to be fully understood.

Tapping into the minds of your audience: The psychology of social media

Many digital marketers make a common error from the outset when planning their content marketing campaigns.

The tendency is to think "what shall we give our audience?" when it is just as important to ask "why should they care?"

I am fascinated by the whole psychology of social media: What motivates people to take certain actions, such as overshare the minutiae of their life, or angrily "out" brands on social networks rather than complain directly to them in private, or retweet unproven allegations (and therefore get sued), and so forth?
