Zombies of Content Marketing

In this article on CMI, Buddy Scalera very creatively depicts the world of content marketing zombies (marketers who consistently curate content on social media channels without adding value) as if it were a scene out of The Walking Dead.

But the world of content marketing is saved by great content creators and curators who know to add value to a piece of content before reposting it. These “survivors” of the marketing zombie apocalypse are willing to go the extra mile for their readers by creating and curating relevant content and adding their own insights to increase its value.
