Amplify Content, Turn Up Demand - Free eBook

You’ve spoken. Loudly. Cleary. But your voice echoes off the wall. It’s not what you were hoping to hear.

You’re sure you had something of value to say. In fact, your recent masterpiece is the most helpful content you’ve ever put out. But it’s found no audience—or no audience has found it.

You, like so many other content marketers, especially those joining the content party in the 2000-and-teens years, are learning how hard it is to find an audience, to be heard, to get a response.

You need a #content # promotion plan.

The Great Content Marketing Buzz Kill

Content marketing has peaked.

Look at the Google Trends timeline below, which shows relative search activity. September 2011 marked the beginning of a steep incline in interest. The buzz kicked into high gear in 2013, inched up in 2014, and hit a new ceiling this month. You can guess what’s to come.

Content marketing interest will decline.

8 Keys to Creating More Meaningful Content

I was staring at my keyboard when I got the idea for this post. And there they were, right in front of my eyes and at my fingertips: eight keys to content marketing.

Take a look at your keyboard. Look at the number keys, specifically the eight symbols on the number keys. In my mind (and now yours), each symbol suggests an effective approach to creating more meaningful content.

Don't pour copy from your long posts into Google+

I suppose it's merely my opinion, but this is NOT a smart tactic. The wall of copy in a narrow column looks like hell. Hard to imagine anyone reads it. 

Put the most important ideas there and send readers to your site. Isn't that what you want?

Free webinar Feb. 19, 12 pm PST.
Social proof is the most powerful weapon on the web. Recommendations from friends, opinions and reviews blow away all other forms of marketing. Go into battle without them and you'll soon be dead meat. Attend the Trust Bombs webinar and you'll leave armed with an arsenal of strategies for igniting the power of persuasion.
