Hook, Line, and Sinker: A Model for Crafting Successful, Viral Content
Rand FishkinJan 4
Despite studying content that overachieves for years, it’s only in the past few months that I’ve stumbled into a mental model I’ve called: Hook, Line, and Sinker. My goal here is to broadly encapsulate *why* overachieving content pieces hit their mark, and why similar, but underperforming pieces miss. First: when …
Dear Executives, Stop Writing Your Own Thought Leadership
Dominic VaianaJan 5

What do Will Smith, Megan Rapinoe, and Gucci Mane have in common? Besides being masters in their respective fields, they were all savvy and humble enough to recognize that their life stories would sound better (and sell better) if they entrusted them to a professional writer. Yes—I’m talking about the …

Cameron BrownJan 3
A lot of companies and marketers we talk to ask us how to hire writers or improve their “SEO writing” or content writing. Many of them aren’t in a position to work with us as an agency client, so they’re trying to improve their writing processes themselves. While we’ve written …

Does anyone else feel like marketing is just throwing shit at a wall and seeing what sticks?

I have a degree in marketing, I've taken a post grad course in it, I've worked in the field for about 2 years in 2 different roles...but I still essentially have no fucking idea what I'm doing 90% of the time. I don't even know where to begin most the …

Genius fundraising hack: Find an investor's Calendly URL by trying their Twitter handle, and just book a meeting. With so many investor meetings, it's easy to forget you never scheduled it. Just happened to me and it was both frightening and hilarious.

Nik Sharma 🚢 @mrsharma

The best marketing answers questions:

• What are you selling? - product
• Why are you selling it? - credibility
• How will it help me? - benefit
• Who else uses it? - unbiased validation
• How does it work? - clarity

Education-first content = the highest LTV customers.

April Dunford @aprildunford

Customers can't tell us everything. They are experts in pain, not solutions. Customers don't understand our products better than we do. If marketing/sales aren't educating customers about differentiated value - customers won't necessarily discover it for you.

Rand Fishkin @randfish

Last week, we launched a new explainer video for SparkToro. It's now on the homepage, and I've had a lot of questions like:

How much did that cost?
How long did it take?
Did you do that yourselves?
What was the goal?
Has it had a positive impact?

Short thread with answers.

I've created content that has:

Generated thousands of backlinks.

How? Prioritizing research...

Here are 9 ways marketers can use research to increase the likelihood of content success:

Andrea Bosoni @theandreboso

The best way to reach an ambitious marketing goal is to break it into small habits.

I will write one tweet and five replies every day 👍

Kevin_Indig @Kevin_Indig

Duplicate content, unless it’s an exact copy of content under a different URL or exact same title, is overrated as a problem.

Dr. Marie Haynes🐧 @Marie_Haynes

There's so much confusion about duplicate content and whether it can hurt in terms of SEO. Great answer here by John in the Dec 31 help hangout.

Google doesn't demote for duplicate content...but they may not show all of it to searchers.…

Jay Acunzo @jayacunzo

So many great podcasts.
So few in B2B.

It's a huge opportunity. But we must switch from talking topics w/ aimless interviews to exploring premises w/ enjoyable formats. (Even if it's an interview, we need a plan)

Don't create some content.
Don't create a podcast.
Create a SHOW.

Kristen LaFrance @kdlafrance

Stop advertising products that are out of stock 👏

JH Scherck @JHTScherck

Social media, r/antiwork, creator economy + the great resignation has created a romantic view of quitting & going solo.

It's not all fun and freedom.

In ~12 months we'll see a return to appreciating employment with a lot of "I want to focus on my craft, not run a business."

Thanks for reading!

Have a great week. 🤓
