Some industries are just boring, like soap making, consulting and toilet paper manufacturing.
But some companies have found ways of making their firms sparkle through online content. See what you can learn from their marketing antics.
They are seen as a commodity — a product of need, not interest. But see how Old Spice is making that exciting.

Now it’s time for a software company to admit that software isn’t what people turn to for entertainment on YouTube, or content that’s educational.
But with the right content mentality and dedication, your software company can spread in recognition and leadership by producing the right content for the right people at the right time.
If you’ve downloaded any of our content before, you know where this one is going.
Here at HubSpot, we pride ourselves in building a content machine. Since the beginning of HubSpot time, we’ve been producing videos to help spread our brand name.
We use video to educate and entertain, here are a few examples:
• Gangnam Style
• Harlem Shake
• Make Love Not Spam
• Congratulations on Avoiding the Sales Rep
This approach was adopted before software companies started to incorporate video marketing into their strategy, and the early success has carried over into our culture of content today.
