Agencies See Growth in Content Marketing Business
The Content Advisory | June 19, 2019
Agencies are banking on content marketing. That’s the key finding in the newly released Content Marketing Institute 2019 Agency Survey. This inaugural research looks at how full-scope agencies, as well as specialized agencies, are doing content marketing for clients, how well it’s working, and some new opportunities. This survey expands on CMI’s previous agency research, which had only focused on how agencies use content for their own marketing. Nearly half of respondents from both types of agencies say content marketing services comprise 50% or more of their total business. About half of respondents from both types of agencies say they’ve been offering content marketing services for seven or more years. 61% of respondents from both types of agencies indicated their agency offers a full scope of content marketing services; another 37% said it offers a specialized service(s) related to content marketing. 73% of respondents from full-service agencies say they are extremely/very successful in achieving their clients’ content marketing goals.
