Join Lee Odden for Two Stellar Presentations at September’s Content Marketing World in Cleveland


After only a week back on Minneapolis soil, TopRank Marketing CEO Lee Odden will be setting off for the biggest content marketing conference on the globe; Content Marketing World. This year, Lee will be presenting not once, but twice at the 2016 Content Marketing World conference.

Over the past few years, Content Marketing World has grown to epic proportions. In fact, last year there were 3.500 attendees from 55 countries (and they are expecting even more this year). Attendees for the conference will gain access to over 80 sessions and workshops to choose from that cover everything related to content.

When you have that many options, sometimes it’s hard to figure out exactly which sessions to attend. To make your choice a little easier, below are the details for both of Lee’s sessions at Content Marketing World.

CMI and MarketingProfs report 76% of B2B marketers will produce more content in 2016 and B2C marketers are allocating 32% of their total marketing budget to content marketing.

This presentation will provide a framework that covers:

  • Deciding what kind of agency makes sense
  • Setting expectations and finding a common language
  • Working with content marketing operations & best practices
  • Improving workflow and the approval process
