Each month, Content Conversations hosts a speaker or panel discussion around a topic relevant to the future of content marketing and publishing.
On July 10th we are excited to host Ariel Finkelstein, Co-Founder and CEO at Kampyle, and Gilad Komrov, VP Sales & Marketing, EMEA at Clarizen, in a panel moderated by Daniel Cohen, General Partner at Carmel Ventures, to hear firsthand about startups investing their limited resources of money, people, and time in content marketing. Why is it important? Where to start? How to translate it to measurable ROI? What mistakes to avoid?
