2017 Benchmarks, Budgets, and Trends—North America. Welcome to the 7th Annual B2B Content Marketing Benchmarks, Budgets, and Trends—North America report. We’ve made quite a few changes to our annual survey this year to reflect the maturing content marketing industry.

This year’s research paints a brighter picture than the last few years, indicating that content marketing is alive and well! Content marketers are on track—with 62% reporting that their organizations are much more or somewhat more successful with their overall content marketing approach compared with one year ago. Like last year, those who are further along with their approach are the most successful, while the vast majority of the least successful are in the young/early phases of content marketing. With time, a documented strategy, creativity, meaningful goals and metrics, a willingness to experiment, and perhaps most importantly, a commitment to content marketing, those marketers will succeed. Please watch for continuing editorial coverage of our research findings throughout 2017. We hope you will find the insights useful as you prepare for the year ahead.
