Tue, 27 Sep 2016 17:38:00 GMT2016-09-27T13:38:00ZIn my last article we explored how to effectively use content marketing for the SaaS industry.

It's an industry where the customers (patients) all have questions that they're desperate to have answered. And what better way to answer those questions than with content marketing.
