YouTube sets a goal of having half of trending videos coming from its own site

Forget what you think you know about content marketing: B-to-B CMO Spotlight

There’s an old truism in the ad business that you can get people to remember an ad by showing something outrageous. David Ogilvy likened it to showing a gorilla in a jock strap.

The same notion is alive and well in content marketing where catchy “click bait” headlines vie for your attention but rarely lead to memorable or meaningful engagement.
