037: Chris Moody, Director of Marketing at Oracle on Content Marketing


MoodtyChris Moody (@cnmoody) is the Director of Marketing for Content and Social at Oracle Marketing Cloud. Chris’s relatively small team develops the content and shares it via social media that helps Oracle stay on top of the industry providing marketers of all stripes with the products and services they need to stay ahead. Chris has dedicated himself to helping educate marketers through speaking engagements and the weekly Content Pros podcast.


Oracle (@oracle) — the second largest software maker in the world after Microsoft — unleashes innovation and enables its 400,000+ customers in over 145 countries to deliver the best experience to their own customers by simplifying IT. In 2014, Forbes listed Oracle’s brand as more valuable than AT&T, Walmart, Verizon, and Budweiser. With 38.3 billion dollars in brand revenue, Oracle sells more than Ralph Lauren, Visa, EBay, Gucci, and Rolex combined. Oracle is also one of the major sponsors of the IMA.


“You need lots of different types of content to figure out what’s working and then you can be more agile and say ‘ok so for our business we may need more of the high-quality content to bring them in and then as the progress through the funnel they really want user stories or they want very detailed blog posts.’” – Chris Moody
