April is wildflowers season in #California. There are lots of meadows with tiny colorful blooms. I took this at Pepperwood Preserve Wildflower Festival: California Poppy, the flower-symbol of my state.

Ouch for Yelp - but, seriously, all these aggressive advertising "techniques" geared toward small businesses would not help much...
The Federal Trade Commission has exposed thousands of consumer complaints they've received about the company.

The Periodic Table of Content Marketing
To enlarge image: i.imgur.com/lqy45vH.png

Did you know that content marketing is also a chemistry?

Just like Matter, content is also made up of small particles, like Ar (articles), V (video), Im (images) etc. And these particles can be broken down into further smaller particles or can be combined into larger pieces, just like the real elements on the Periodic Table.

Thinking about content marketing as elements will give you a better understanding of how to define a content strategy, content type and format.

Take a look at this chart created by +Econsultancy to know what the content marketing universe is made of.
