H5M Wins Prestigious 2016 Content Marketing Award

01 August 2016 -- The Content Marketing Institute just announced High Five Marketing, Inc. (H5M) won a 2016 Content Marketing Award for Best Use of LinkedIn/Slideshare in Content Marketing. The Content Marketing Awards, produced by the Content Marketing Institute, is the largest content marketing awards program on the planet

This year’s Content Marketing Awards include 76 categories recognizing all aspects of content marketing, from strategy to distribution, from design to editorial. A panel of all-star judges chose the “best of the best” in content marketing excellence from more than 1,300 entries.

"Each year I am impressed with the caliber of work that is submitted, and this year is no exception," says Joe Pulizzi founder, Content Marketing Institute, and author of 4 content marketing books including Content Inc. "One of the things that really stood out this year was that marketers are truly starting to understand the approach of content marketing, and seeing real return on investment that is driving future marketing decisions.  It’s easy to say that this was our best class ever.”

This is the third Content Marketing Award for H5M.  In 2013, H5M earned two Silver Awards for Best Curated Content Website and for Best Podcast Series.  And in 2015, H5M was a finalist for the Best Content-Driven Website.

“We are extremely honored to have yet again earned a Content Marketing Award from the Content Marketing Institute,” said H5M Managing Director and Founder Alycen McAuley.  “In the Play Positive™ Sportsmanship In Focus series, our team sought to engage youth sports parents and coaches with valuable advice in a way that would captivate.  The instructional and activity-related lessons lent themselves to the Slideshare format.  And the results – both graphically and program KPIs - were extraordinary!”

You can see a full list of the 2016 winners and finalists in all 76 categories on the Content Marketing Awards website. You can also view all eleven Sportsmanship In Focus presentations on Slideshare.
