A total of 78% of marketers believe that the investment in content marketing will grow over the next two years.
Interestingly, video may lead the way in terms of content as time goes on, according to the report. When asked what type of content they will likely use more over the next 12 months, 69.3% of marketers cited short-form videos. This was followed by editorial-style content (57.9%) and social media posts (55.7%).
