Content marketing (CM) has been described, especially by practitioners, as a new approach in the practice of marketing communications, suitable to reach a variety of goals, such as customer engagement and brand awareness. Despite its pervasive diffusion in the business community, very little has been said about its theoretical robustness as well as its actual significance for academic research. Thus, the present paper aims at exploring the key dimensions of the construct. A Delphi-type predictive survey of several international experts (both academics and practitioners) has been devised with the aim of producing one comprehensive view of content marketing, discussing the main determinants, definitions, issues, benefits and barriers surrounding the concept. The study partially confirms the potential contribution of “content marketing” in reshaping emerging research trends in marketing communications. The paper details some managerial implications of the construct’s definition and develops a preliminary research agenda for this field of study.
Keywords: Content marketing, branded content, Delphi, marketing communications, integrated marketing communications (IMC).
