CLEVELAND, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Content Marketing Institute (CMI) today announced the launch of their strategy consulting practice dedicated to the emerging category of content marketing strategy and editorial services. The practice is focused on helping organizations of all sizes address the opportunity for original content to be leveraged for positive impact on business results.
The Content Marketing Institute Consulting (CMIC) practice focuses on combining independent and pragmatic thinking across a wide array of content marketing expertise. CMI Consultants are independent but, working together, represent a collective that can draw upon a unique depth and breadth of experience that provides unique value to clients.
"Our goals are simple," said Joe Pulizzi, Executive Director of CMI. "We want to help marketers establish great content marketing strategies. After launching CMI last May, inquiries came pouring in asking how an organization could actually create that strategy. And when we recognized some of the enormously talented people that we had helping to contribute knowledge – it just made complete sense to combine them into a cohesive, unified consulting practice."
Helping to organize and lead the practice will be Robert Rose – CMI's first "Strategist in Residence." In addition to being one of the consultants available for services, Robert's role is to understand the client's challenges – develop an appropriately sized solution and match the client with the right combination of CMI consultants.
