Thank You Content Marketing

Earlier this week, I had a call with an old friend. She is a sole practitioner and wants to drum up business so she called me for advice. I told her:

“The single best decision I ever made was to start creating content.”

The Secret to Supercharging Your Content Production

Editor’s note: Today’s post is from Liz O’Neill from Kapost. Her last Funnelholic guest post knocked it out of the park. She’s back and appreciate the value Kapost is trying to deliver to the content marketing world with the templates they are offering. See more below!

Marketers today are under a lot of pressure. They’re responsible not only for engaging leads, but also for converting prospects, driving revenue and retaining business.

The major tool at their disposal? High-quality content at every stage of the funnel. And to beat the competition, they need to create a lot of it. In other words, they need to scale their content marketing production.

And it’s at this stage where most marketers stumble.

Why? Because as content demands grow, ad hoc processes fail. And building entirely new content workflows steal valuable time and resources away from actually producing that content, capturing leads, and driving revenue. [Read more…]

I Laughed, I Cried: My LinkedIn Publishing Journey

I have been publishing content on LinkedIn. I learned somethings along the way

First I want to make a distinction, there is a difference between sharing content on LinkedIn and publishing. Publishing is when you actually use their publishing platform and the post resides on LinkedIn. Sharing is when you share a link to another site in your status update. I wrote a post a little while ago, Share Content on Linkedin. Trust Me and it may have confused people. I advocate sharing content on LinkedIn 6-8x per day minimum for anyone who is building their personal  or corporate brand. I still share on all the social networks, but LinkedIn has the biggest impact by far. So share content on LinkedIn.

Recently, I have been testing publishing content on LinkedIn. Here is why. On February 18, 2014, I repurposed a post I had written awhile back on prospecting. It is one of the more highly trafficked posts on this blog where it got roughly 10k views. For my little blog, those are great numbers. Now back to the present, same post, purporse on Linked gets 16,744 views…1,044 LinkedIn shares. Oh wow. Check it out below.

This is Optimizely’s Home Page

Optimizely helps organizations optimize their websites via A/B testing. (Pretty surprising considering the company name…I am full of big surprises) I only mention this because they clearly know how to create pages that convert. In other words, copy them. I don’t confess to be the world’s greatest web designer (please see the Funnelholic design for example) but I do know marketing, follow marketing trends, and know who we should all copy and follow. The simple call-to-action home page is one of my favorites if not my #1. This is not a new trend, but clearly one that has not been picked up by 99.3% of business websites out there. Oh and this is the shortest blog post I have written in years but I think I make my point. Check it.
