100+ Tools Content Marketers Really Love

Want to be a better content marketer? As the list of content tech options expands every day, creating a short list of options only gets more complex. Still, when considering new technologies, many content tech buyers are curious about what tools and technologies other content marketers use to build their programs. Tech a look under the content marketing hood Earlier this year, we surveyed the CMI community about which content tools and technologies they can’t live without. Respondents weren’t required to pick a favorite in every category, just in those where they had a top pick. More than half (58%) of the 424 people who chose a favorite named Google Analytics the top pick. And, among the nearly 400 content marketers who picked a favorite in this category, 33% named MailChimp their favorite.

Tech a look under the content marketing hood

Earlier this year, we surveyed the CMI community about which content tools and technologies they can’t live without.

If you’re one of the 700 that took the survey, you might remember how it worked. If not, here’s a quick recap.
