This Post Type Always Works

Even with the best content strategy and plan, once in a while, we all end up staring at a blank screen with a blinking cursor waiting for some inspiration to strike.

As important as it is to base your content strategy on your business goals, it’s also important to create connections and build relationships.

This is a favorite type of blog post you can create that always does well (pretty big promise, isn’t it?).

This post type is always a winner.

And truth be told, it’s pretty fun to create too.

Read below how you can create one blog post that will create massive traffic, tons of goodwill and engagement, and provide you with micro-content for weeks!

Happy Creating,
Jodi & Kim

Another “hat tip” to podcasting.

Ever since I started podcasting 7 years ago I’ve said that starting a podcast was one of the best things I’ve done for my business.

I still feel that.

Not only is hosting your own podcast great content (good for both search, relationship building, and audience growth), but being a guest on other podcasts can exponentially grow your brand.

I was recently a guest on the Castos “Audience” podcast with Matt Medeiros. We talked about podcasting and how it helped grow this brand and audience.
