LinkedIn proves there is no formula for content marketing success


According to new research published by LinkedIn and Buzzsumo, there is no secret formula when it comes to content that flies and that which pans on social media.

This comes as no surprise, but even I can’t help feeling a little disappointed that there’s no format to follow for content production and marketing.
