If you viewed your content marketing operations from a 35,000 foot level, what would they look like? Would your organization’s content assets, social media networks and web/mobile properties all be aligned and grouped in a cohesive, self-supporting structure?

And while it was not perfect, this particular “numbers first” approach proved better than an expert’s best guess.
