Q3 Does all content marketing have to be nonfiction?

I used to believe that content marketing for business had to be nonfiction. But look at all of the storylines in advertising. They’re not real. There is no “Jake” from State Farm.

Q4 What can content marketers learn from fiction writers?

They can learn to draw people in and care about the brand. They can learn better writing skills. I’ve been prioritizing reading lately to improve my own writing.
