Here’s a simple way to make the best use of your time when you’re creating new content, improve your SEO, and create a great user experience on your website.
Whether you’ve created a lot of content already, or you’re just starting out, here’s how to structure your site with strong “cornerstones” so you do an amazing job conveying your message.
In this 22-minute episode, I talk about:
- The creation (and timing) of “conscious cornerstones” that answer your most important audience questions
- Where to find your “mystery hit” content, and what to do with it
- What to do about content you just aren’t proud of any more
- What to do with content that’s popular, but not particularly relevant to your goals for your site
- A new workshop we’re creating for beginning and intermediate content marketers
