PNR: This Old Marketing | Content Marketing with Joe Pulizzi and Robert Rose

In this episode of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss a contrarian article on whether or not content marketing actually exists. Could content marketing follow in the path of advertising?  Publishers are now fully focused on e-commerce, and Buzzfeed's prospects dip and their future is more cloudy.  Rants and raves include Disrupted by Dan Lyons and a must-read HBR article.  This week's TOM example: Ripley's Believe It or Not.
