Episode Summary

Everyone wants to stand out in a crowded marketplace, and B2B marketers are no different.

But with the term “thought leadership” becoming one of the most overused terms in marketing, it can be challenging to know when you should consider a thought leadership approach.

Stopping by the Radically Transparent podcast is Inbar Yagur, Vice President of Marketing at GrowthSpace. She shares her perspective on what makes thought leadership content resonate with audiences, regardless of the amount of digital noise. She gets transparent about what it takes to differentiate thought leadership content from noise as she explains:

Good thought leadership happens when you have an intersection between something that is newsworthy and a value proposition that brings your company forward.

Throughout the episode, Inbar challenges listeners to find the “moments that spark”– and guides us on how to use those moments to create meaningful thought leadership content that breaks through the noise and converts.

While she candidly admits breaking through the digital noise is still something that is keeping her up at night, she also shares the radically transparent truths behind how she is doing it leading an agile marketing team, along with how difficult it can be to strike the right balance between sparking creativity and managing tasks that will ultimately drive business results.
