In recent weeks, millennials have been graduating from colleges and universities in record numbers, soon to be joining the workforce with steady paychecks and offering one of the most exciting marketing opportunities since the Baby Boom generation. According to a new Pew Research report, more than one-in-three American workers today are millennials (adults ages 18 to 34 in 2015), and this year they surpassed Generation X to become the largest share of the American workforce.

When it comes to daily headlines, social media has become a primary news source for many of us.

As the demand for visual content continues to climb, marketers must understand the value of bringing stories to life through pictures. Infographics ruled the day early on. And while there’s still a place for these informative graphics in storytelling, their widespread adoption has cost the medium the unique content marketing appeal it once had.

Is “dead” content haunting you? You know what I’m talking about. It’s that great piece of content you put out months ago, and after a great few weeks, it’s just sitting there lifeless on the Internet, waiting for a mad scientist (or marketer) to breathe new life into it.
