I recorded this podcast with Guillaume Decugis, CEO of Scoop.it!, at his office in San Francisco. We discussed the process of how businesses generate leads through content marketing. By strategizing content around buyers’ various stages in the funnel, lead generation is fueled and conversion is encouraged.

Marketers often start with a landing page, then realize they need to create content to support it. After listening to this podcast, you’ll have a better understanding of how the three pivotal elements of content marketing (landing pages, content and distribution) work together to generate leads.
