Superb: "Go with what you got." 
For years I've chatted with smart, ambitious people and friends who want to start new projects or businesses. Often their visions are big. So they dream up equally big things their startups need: money, connections, resources. And that's where they get stuck. They don't have any of those things.

I vividly remember the first time I heard Black Flag. It was in a kid named Mike Goodman’s bedroom, and the record was called Damaged. That’s how it was pre-Internet in suburban Houston. If it wasn’t on the radio or MTV, it was invisible — unless some cool kid turned you on to something newRead More...

Google rankings are dynamic and ever-changing, especially when searches are made by different people in different locations. For example, a search for “car insurance” yields 5 out of 10 localized results for local directories like Yelp, local car insurance agents, and then national companies. SEO is no longer about one type of rating. Google nowPlay Episode

Content marketing links and advice from the folks at Copyblogger.
Introduction
Copyblogger doesn't just teach content marketing ... we built our company with it. 

Since January 2006, we've 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.

Brief History of Copyblogger Media
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.
