To be a master marketer, you have to be a master of content. But the 2014 forecast study by the CIM reported that only "44% of B2B marketers have a documented content strategy".

Nuts - the magazine that launched a thousand unrealistic fantasies - is facing closure. While it's a sad day for print media, it's also a sign of the times.

Once candles are lit, and I'm in, the regret starts to encroach.

In an attempt to quickly salvage my bathing experience, I decide to read a magazine.
