What Can Luke Skywalker Teach You About Content Marketing? Well, Nothing But …

What can galactic hero Luke Skywalker teach you about content marketing? OK, nothing really. Come on. He’s a fictional character.

But actor Mark Hamill, who has played the iconic characters for four of the popular movies in the Star Wars franchise thus far, will be a keynote speaker at Content Marketing World 2016 in Cleveland in September. So if you happen to be passing through the star system and have the time, you may want to hop into your X-Wing, landspeeder or Corellian cruiser and check out the event.

Hamill will be joined by some more terrestrial guests — like Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer for MarketingProfs;  Joe Pulizzi, founder of the Content Marketing Institute, which puts on the event; and Rand Fishkin, SEO wizard at SEO MOZ.
