Kathy Baughman, president of ComBlu, highlights the four major pain points for content marketing. Not surprisingly, she says that feeding the content beast is the second biggest challenge for marketers. She says that many marketers go for quantity over quality:

- You are adding value along the way by annotating your content.
- You are not “indiscriminately” sharing content, but rather being highly selective about it.
