Winning the battle for better content

“My greatest desire is for people to feel so passionately about their content that they’ll do battle to improve it… and this amazing survey shows they are.

It’s a terrific weapon for content strategists everywhere – a solid business case to gain resources for adaptive, mobile-friendly customer-pleasing content… the kind that transforms businesses from the inside out.”

Kristina Halvorson, author of Content Strategy for the Web
