Since January 2006, Copyblogger has been teaching people how to create killer online content. Not bland corporate crap created to fill up a company webpage. Valuable information that attracts attention, drives traffic, and builds your business.
These days, that’s called content marketing. Copyblogger founder Brian Clark has been building businesses with online content marketing since 1998, before anyone used that term.
Copyblogger started as a simple one-man blog. Today, Copyblogger Media is a software and training organization with more than 115,000 unique customers — and it was all done with useful content, smart copywriting, and solid products and services.
No advertising. No venture capital. No outbound sales team.
Just $1,000 in seed cash and a whole lot of time and effort spent teaching others how to do online marketing that works. Every product we’ve released was conceived from the practical, real-world needs we see every day in our audience. Today we’re a profitable multi-million dollar company that’s growing fast.
Our mission has never changed: We’ll help you create the kind of audience-focused content that helps you reach your business goals.
Your free content marketing education:
How did we know seven years ago (that’s like 60 years in internet time) that content marketing would become so important?
Because content has been a smart way to find more customers and clients for at least 100 years. But now the Internet has empowered prospective customers and clients to the point that content has become the smartest way to market online.
Today, Copyblogger brings you 5-6 articles a week about what’s working right now in online content marketing. And we’re not too humble to say it’s the most popular content marketing and writing blog on the planet.
What can you expect?
- It’s not (just) about SEO.
- It’s not (just) about social media.
- It’s not (just) about blogging or email marketing or conversion.
Today, it’s always a bigger picture. You need to understand all the facets of effective content marketing, and we cover the gamut, daily … for free.
