Maybe it’s because I’m back in California for a bit but it’s certainly starting to feel like summer is right around the corner (although a friend shared that it was snowing in Massachusets this week… brrr!).
You don’t realize how much you miss the sunshine until it comes back and you feel motivated and ready to take on the world.
That’s kind of how I feel when I find a new strategy I can try with my content too. With organic reach being harder, we have to get creative with how, when, and where we promote our content.
It’s important to keep doing the things that are working, but what if you added in ONE new strategy or tried one new method once or twice a month?
And what if you gained even a handful of new, quality subscribers and a couple of customers a month?
Wouldn’t it be worth it?
Content promotion is just as important as the content itself.
Here are 10 Fun, Easy, and Unique Ways to Promote Your Content

Are you ready to try these trigger words?
Don’t be afraid of using language that is outside of your comfort zone when it comes to copy. To quote advertising legend David Ogilvy: “On average, five times as many people read the headline as read the body copy. When you have written your headline, you have spent eighty cents out of your dollar.”
