Content calendars, legal approvals, social publishing tools, reporting, and more… Large organizations in particular are grappling with the best ways to structure their teams to allow them to be effective, always-on content marketers. We heard firsthand from Visa, a leading global brand, regarding the path to success they have paved.

The Approach We Took

• Goal: • Analyze underlying data from top performing brands to infer

traits of their organizational structure and publishing practices

• Sample: • Top 10 Brands (Fortune 500) with the highest CMS Score in

July 2014• The sample is represented pre-dominantly by Tech and

Financial Services companies

• Note:• Because the Content Marketing Score looks at a variety of

factors beyond the company page and content; these results should be looked at as directional indicators.
