Contentgine Releases Its First ‘Content Top 5 in 15’ Video Program Starring Robert Rose

Contentgine | February 14, 2022

Content Top 5 in 15
On February 11, Contentgine announced the release of the first video in its groundbreaking series called ‘Contentgine Content Top 5 in 15’. Famous author and content expert Robert Rose of the Content Marketing Institute is the host of the show. This video series consists of Rose’s analysis of the top five most-read content pieces in a particular product category from Contentgine’s big collection of business content consumption data.

The first episode is free and is hosted on the company’s website. It analyzes the top five content pieces in the data analytics product category with case studies written by #SyncFusion, #Sisense, #Atlassian (ChartIO), and #Encorta.

Rose gave some insights into the series and the first program topic- data analytics. He said, "The show is for any demand or content marketer, even though we focus on a particular product category for that show. There is so much information to be gleaned from looking at what makes a piece of content – regardless of category – that we think the fifteen minutes it takes to view the program will prove to be time well-spent for those marketers looking to improve their content consumption and demand generation."

"What struck me about the data analytics space," Rose continued, "was how well-written each content piece was in taking complex ideas and making them easily understood even by folks not having an analytics background. #SiSense, in particular, had two pieces of content in the Top Five, and I think it's a testament to the quality of the writing that went into every piece."

Ian Dix, Chief Marketing Officer for Contentgine, stated: "We think this will be a trailblazing series for demand and content marketers, because no one has had the content consumption data at this scale before. We have it as part of our Perpetual Engine® methodology, and we can offer marketers the first real look at what makes great content great."

We have it as part of our Perpetual Engine® methodology, and we can offer marketers the first real look at what makes great content great."

"Our next three programs," Dix continued, "will have Robert analyzing the most-read content pieces in the database solutions, artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things product categories. We hope our marketing friends get good insights and some "aha" moments ideas from Robert's brilliant analyses."

In the digital era – where a potential audience and customer-base is global – the temptation is to cast the biggest net over the widest area possible. It’s an enticing prospect and it has helped perpetuate sales and marketing as a high volume business. Unfortunately, it’s also turning it into a low return business. At Momentum we persuade business-tobusiness organisations like yours to resist the mass marketing approach. Instead we advocate targeting the few, not the many. We advocate targeting those that count with laser-like focus and a customer first approach...
