Kapost Powers the Content for USGBC’s Marketing Automation
Kapost’s streamlined workflow and processes helped move the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) marketing content from fragmented and non-targeted to robust, relevant, and buyercentric.
USGBC, a membership-based non-profit organization that promotes sustainability in building design, integrated Kapost before onboarding other marketing technologies, including marketing automation because the two systems relied heavily on one another, and would require a streamlined and

Producing Quality Content
USGBC can now separate the wheat from the chaff, dialing in on only producing quality content—the content that resonates with audiences and attracts the most lead generation.
