Here's the next in our triple feature of content marketing smarts from some of the top speakers (stars) on the topic. The story? How to Make Content Marketing the Star of Your Marketing. 

This new edition showcases the talents of content marketing savvy brands like Salesforce, Citrix, USC, Zendesk, Blackberry, EMC, Cleveland Clinic and MarketingProfs - all speakers at this year's Content Marketing World conference. 

The topic begs the question - should you try to make content a bigger part of marketing? When is too much? There's a lot to be said for a quantity of quality and relevance when it comes to content. 

A big thanks goes to CMI and +Joseph Kalinowski for partnering with +TopRank Online Marketing to produce this series.

"In 2005, John Cleese helped create one of the first viral videos on the internet for a B2B company. As the star of LiveVault’s, “Institute for Backup Trauma” he helped generate thousands of sales leads for the backup server provider and increased web traffic by ten-fold" 
We're excited to announce that Mr. John Cleese will be a keynote speaker at the CMWorld event. Aside from his obvious award-winning and influential career in Hollywood, Cleese also has his own ties to the content marketing world.

"A comedian is supposed to be an outsider. He's supposed to be outside looking in. I don't want to be at parties in D.C. with politicians. Comedians shouldn't be there. If you feel comfortable in a room like that, there's a big problem. That's what is so concerning when you see journalists so comfortable around politicians — that's a red flag."

The comedian who was a correspondent on The Daily Show for 7 1/2 years now pokes fun on Last Week Tonight. Oliver talks about tasing his leg, temping for a thief and remaining an outsider.

“Humor is something people inherently enjoy.  But there also needs to be something wrong, unsettling, and threatening in some way. We call those violations.” -- +Peter McGraw 
New research shows that the best humor is both a little bit wrong and a little bit right. Is there something about comedians that makes them better at subversion?
