2014 is shaping up to be a year of change for brand marketers in the United States. Search engines like Google are awarding brands that engage in content marketing and social media with big traffic that wins new customers.

There’s just one problem…

According to a recent CMO Council Report, just 9% of marketers say they believe agencies have been good at migrating to digital, and 51% of marketers see agencies as playing catch-up with regards to new technology like content marketing and social media.
