It’s that time of year. We all seem to be planning for 2019. And that usually means taking a look at our content marketing strategies, making adjustments, and maybe even trying something new. Here at CMI, we kick off our strategy meeting by diving into our annual research.
No one knows the data and the findings from our report better than Lisa Murton Beets, CMI’s Research Director. That’s why we invited her to be a special guest on a recent #CMWorld Twitter chat. Lisa puts together our annual research reports. She does custom reports too. Lisa is definitely deep in the trenches.
We covered a lot of ground in an hour, more than we can put in this blog post. So be sure to check out:

A1: When using research or any stats with customers and prospects, don’t twist them to tell a story that isn’t true. It’s easy to find a stat that makes you look good, but does it tell the story accurately? Don’t use research to mislead; it just causes more frustration! #cmworld https://t.co/JVPrsYUvBZ

A6. I’ll offer an observation. I think there’s a strong tendency to invest in tech without knowing first what the problem is. Determine your needs and processes first, and then buy the tech. The solution doesn’t have to be sexy. It just has to work. #CMWorld https://t.co/7rIuuQL5Gp

A6 By creating the ability to be reached by a client/potential client almost instantly. A client/potential can send me a tweet, DM, call, email, FB message, or even text and I’ll get it and answer within 24 hours. The instant human response is invaluable #CMworld #GoIuby https://t.co/DyjuOCwsZP
