The 2015 Content Marketing World Backchannel: Curated Resources #CMWorld

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 9.43.56 AMThis post curates resources shared via the backchannel of the 2015 Content Marketing World Conference being held September 8 – 11 in Cleveland, Ohio.

I am a huge proponent of backchannel learning. There are many conferences I would love to be able to attend, but most people can only accommodate one or two each year. The backchannel is an excellent resource for learning from a conference or event, even if you are unable to attend in-person.

I find curating and reviewing backchannel resources to be a valuable learning experience for me, even when I am attending a conference in person. Sharing these collections on this blog has shown that others find value in the collections as well.
