On day three of Hubspot’s Inbound Conference 2012, it’s clear that content is king. Of 64 sessions, most were about using content; creating content, managing content, sharing content, or tracking content. There were many examples of content in the wild, most of it textbook-perfect material designed to appeal to customers and drive shares and inbound links. That’s the point.
By that I mean the questions that are being asked of those who support the Occupy Wall Street movement (as I do). We are asked “What is your message?” “What are your ideas?” “What are your demands?” “What is Occupy Wall Street about?”
The implication is clear: #OWS does not have a mission statement or a vision, and therefore cannot be legitimate. That’s irony.
