TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: Content Marketing Doesn’t Work The Way You Think
  • [00:37] There are two schools of thought on content marketing: The first is: Write a lot of content and you will get rankings, traffic, and generate a ton of sales.
  • [01:02] Someone will not convert the same way if they visit your home page vs. your blog post, because the intent is to read, not to buy.
  • [01:20] You just have to keep in mind how conversions work.
  • [01:38] The second school of thought is that quality wins over quantity every time.
  • [01:50] Backlinko writes infrequent, high-quality content.
  • [02:07] HubSpot posts the most content, but their quality isn’t as good.
  • [02:44] However, they still do extremely well in rankings, conversions, etc.
  • [03:08] Backlinko is worth less than HubSpot.
  • [03:40] Guest contributors can bring in new audience members and get you more conversions.
  • [04:01] It’s all about finding high-ranking keywords and flooding the marketplace, which is what HubSpot does well.
  • [04:20] It’s all about creating a framework/system for posts and guest posts.
  • [04:35] Read the post from Tomasz Tunguz of Red Point Ventures about how content marketing compounds.
  • [04:48] You will have hits and misses, but the more you post, the more likely you are to be successful.
  • [05:00] Content marketing will boost your site authority.
  • [05:20] That’s it for today!
