In the 2012 Media Usage Forecast, 62 percent of respondents said they planned to increase spending on content marketing, making it the most invested-in "new" marketing technology in the survey. Yet, when it comes time to start a content marketing campaign, many marketers are faced with a difficult problem: Where do you get the content?
