Aaron Orendorff’s wrote an interesting article about the new book of Joe Pulizzi and Robert Rose Killing Marketing: How Innovative Businesses Are Turning Marketing Cost into Profit. Aaron Orendorff is the founder of iconiContent and a regular contributor at Entrepreneur, Lifehacker, Fast Company, Business Insider and more.

It’s not about throwing everything out. It’s about investing now in a process that will pay dividends years from now.”
