Notable Quotes

  • A big part of it is understanding what your customers care about, which is kind of marketing 101, talking to your target customers, talking to your ideal clients, understanding their problems, their pain points, their goals, their ambitions, and then working that into the copy. So as long as you're doing those basics, you should be fine. 
  • Make sure when you go on a show, you can literally give genuine, actionable helpful tips that you know are going to be useful rather than talking about yourself because no one wants to hear that.
  • What Google wants businesses to do really, basically stick in your lane. And if you create great human content that is useful, you'll be rewarded.
  • Sometimes great content can just rank doesn't always happen. But it can, well, people can find it, and then they can start linking to it. But what you can find is there might be a snowball effect. So you might produce this awesome page that does all those best practices we've talked about, then you might have to reach out to quite a few companies that are relevant, and then one or two of those might offer you a link. And you might have to give them a sweetener in return. But then from that little boost that you've got from those links, other companies might start seeing it, maybe you've got some unique data, stash some unique data and other people start linking to it. So it builds up like a snowball effect. 
  • Think of companies that complement your industry, but aren't direct competitors.
