A Content Marketing Strategy That Works

Image of Scribe Ebook Cover

It’s time to get strategic about your content marketing.

After all, it’s one thing to create compelling content that spreads via social media and ranks well in search engines. It’s quite another for that content to build an audience that builds your business.

The key to making that happen? Building authority thanks to that audience.

With that goal in mind, I’m happy to announce another free ebook for you. This is the second installment in a series I’m writing to give you a solid road map to developing a content marketing initiative that works.

This time I lay out a 7-step process that provides you with a solid strategy framework. There are also checklists of tasks and tactics within each of the seven steps.

In this quick 18-page read, you’ll discover:

  • The strange trick authority does to your prospect’s brain
  • How to become more important than the “experts”
  • Why Google keeps getting better at mimicking offline authority
  • What to focus on for better search engine rankings (it’s not what you think)
  • The 7-step process all effective content marketing follows
  • What a minimum viable audience is (and how to get one)
  • The “unfair advantage” that comes from content marketing

There’s also a nifty forward by Sonia Simone. Click here to get access.
