With many major brands having years of social media experience under their belts, one would expect that the most cringeworthy examples of social media faux pas would be well in the past.
But that isn't the case.
A growing number of companies are investing more heavily in content marketing, but not all of their campaigns will deliver the performance they're expecting.
There are a number of reasons content marketing campaigns don't succeed.
Here are six of the most common.
In our recent Quarterly Digital Intelligence Briefing 2016 marketers voted 'optimizing the customer experience' as the most exciting opportunity open to them.

Perhaps someday native advertising will mature into a viable alternative to traditional web advertising but today it creates more problems than answers.
Native advertising is one of the hottest marketing trends this year. From BuzzFeed to Twitter, the most admired businesses of our generation have been built on this supposedly new advertising medium.

That's because the restaurant is currently suffering from a bout of social media backlash after reports that it made a very bad customer service decision.
With advertisers set to pour more and more money into native ads, 2013 could be a great year for well-positioned publishers.
But publishers looking at native ads as a solution to ad blockers and paltry display CPMs should tread carefully.
Native ads aren't a panacea and the premiums advertisers may be willing to pay for them shouldn't distract from the fact that native ads can be risky ads.
In 2011, marketers began saying that "content marketing is more important than advertising" and given the growth of content marketing in 2012, it would appear that they meant what they said.
And not just in the consumer space. Although selling content marketing to leadership has been a challenge for some B2B marketers, the use of content marketing at B2B organizations is growing rapidly.

Pinterest is one of the hottest and fastest-growing social networks in the world, and therefore it's no surprise that a growing number of brands are making the image-centric service a part of their social media strategy.
But up until now, their activities on Pinterest have technically been in violation of the service's rules, which forbade commercial usage.
