As more organizations rely on content marketing principles, the fight for attention gets more competitive. Now think about the content that you've loved -- how often has it used humor or comedy to convey its message? This session will (1) dissect the different types and formulas for humor and comedy, (2) examine case studies of successful humorous content from a number of industries, and (3) identify opportunities to use humor in marketing. Armed with a few simple formulas, you'll never look at ideas or content the same again.
