Jonathan Cronstedt shares insight from Neil Patel
We are now on Day 8 of the blogging challenge and I want to talk about content. Content is such a big deal in the world of blogging. I was actually recently quoted in a Business 2 Community article, “The Future of Content Marketing in 2015.” You can read it on the website; I’m number 25.
I recently read an awesome blog post from Neil Patel about creating content that drives organic traffic. Neil is fantastic. If you haven’t heard of him, he’s known for his blogging expert knowledge and is also the co-founder of KISSmetrics and Crazy Egg. The Wall Street Journal even calls him one of the top influencers on the Web.
I’ve reblogged the article below and included a link. For those wondering, attendees at Empower Network’s Revolution conference will be privy to insight from guest speaker Neil Patel. Revolution is scheduled for Jan. 24-26, 2015, at The Westin Lake Las Vegas at 101 MonteLago Boulevard in Henderson, Nevada. Buy your tickets and register for the event here.
