Businesses must be willing to invest in individuals who can implement content marketing campaigns from start to finish. The success rate of content marketing in a B2B environment is 40%, whereas the success rate in a B2C environment is 28%. The major reason for this is the high number of options consumers have compared with businesses. In the future, the success rate of content marketing is expected to decline as the standard of content marketing increases. In addition, as an increasing number of businesses adopt content marketing, the marketing strategy will lose its value proposition. This is expected to further decrease the success rate.
