Andy Crestodina, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Orbit Media, joins the Content Pros Podcast to share a first-look at the insights gleaned from his annual survey of 1,000+ bloggers and how you can build your lifetime body of work.
How Long Does It Take?
Video. Images. GIFs. Memes. Infographics.
Content has evolved so much in the past decade that it’s easy to forget about the OG content… blogging. It may be overlooked, but it is anything but gone.
Andy has been surveying 1,000+ bloggers every year for the past four years to get a pulse on how this original content gangster is surviving in the modern marketing world. It turns out that the art of blogging is very much alive and well.
Not only are people spending more time blogging, but there is also a notable increase in overall investment in it as a content marketing tool. The most significant change in blogging comes in the area of paid promotion. People are investing more energy into producing blogs and pouring more money into ensuring the success of these posts with their audience.
It’s clear from Andy’s research that while many things have changed with content, blogging is still a dominant player on the field.

Content Pros Lightning Round
What are you planning on going as for Halloween? My wife and I have a baby, and we were talking about dressing him up as an animal. He sees little rabbits in the neighborhood, so a bunny makes sense. Now that the late, great Hugh Hefner passed away… I’m thinking of getting a silk bathrobe and walking around with my one-year-old dressed as a rabbit.
