Meet “Content Marketer of the Year” Vishal Khanna

December 21, 2015

“When people talk about companies who “get” content marketing, big names like GoPro, Marriott, and Ikea tend to dominate the conversation. But while all of these were represented by finalists in the Content Marketer of the Year awards from the Content Marketing institute, it was Vishal Khanna of Wake Forest Innovations who brought home the prize.”

Speakeasy’s Mike Orren interviews Vishal for the inaugural episode of his Digital CMO podcast. Topics covered include:

  • Trends we hope to see in marketing in 2016
  • Why Greensboro, NC is the epicenter of the content marketing universe (sorry, Cleveland)
  • How Wake Forest bought into a content marketing initiative unlike anything else in their space
  • The strategy and tactics that drove interim wins and long-term success
  • How to find the right content creators for your brand
  • How marketing and sales can really work together
  • How you iterate upon a big success
