Higher Quality Content Always Wins

“OMG! Have you gotten an invite to Clubhouse yet?!”


To each, their own, but what if the answer to driving more traffic to your site wasn’t yet another social media platform? (and if you’re not familiar with Clubhouse, I briefly explain it in today’s post).

What if the answer was to create better content, but less of it?

Jodi addressed this in her post “No one really needs MORE content from you” (and is worth the time if you haven’t read it already). With this latest shiny object (Clubhouse) It seems important to continue this conversation.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately with the start of a new year and feeling laser-focused on the best use of my time. I love the quote I shared in the post from Malcolm Gladwell about aiming to be different, not better.

Which is so refreshing…

It’s a lot easier to be uniquely yourself. Focus on creating higher quality content, not more of it (and less consuming, more producing).

Happy Creating,
Jodi & Kim
