At the MarketingSherpa Media Center at DMA’s &THEN 2015 Daniel Burstein, Director of Editorial Content, MarketingSherpa, sat down with Heather Taylor, Director of Content Strategy in North America, The Economist, to discuss results of a recent study on how executives prefer to use content for business decisions, and what types of content they prefer.
In May 2014 The Economist Intelligence Unit in association with Peppercomm released results of a survey of 530 global executives located in the Asia-Pacific region, Western Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America and Eastern Europe. The executives represented companies across a wide range of industries, the top five being:
IT and technology
Energy and natural resources
The researchers asked executives, "In the past 12 months which of the following forms of content have you found most helpful for a business related matter? Select the top three."
