How to Create Best Answer Content: 6 Inspiring Examples

Undoubtedly you’ve heard the expression “content shock,” coined by marketing expert Mark Schaefer. With immense respect, I have to admit: I don’t believe in it. The idea that there’s so much content out there, people are tired of content altogether? That no one’s giving new content a chance? That it’s too hard to get new content seen? Not buying it.
