In just 6 sessions, you’ll be able to

  • Align topics and formats with the information needs of your audience
  • Research keyphrases and search optimize your content
  • Find and collaborate with relevant influencers
  • Maximize your email list growth, open rates and click through rates
  • Produce higher quality content in less time by repurposing
  • Measure and optimize for better traffic (and more conversions) on the next go round

We’ll analyze the birth of a lead, deconstructing each page in the process and each stage in the funnel. You’ll learn how to strengthen each stage, from the high-ranking blog post to the thank you page after the thank you page.

Why you need this course

Content. It’s why they visit and why they convert (or don’t). Content is part of every step in your funnel. From the first keyphrase to the final conversion, this masterclass connects every dot. Your content is a bridge between a Google search results page and your website’s thank you page.

With this course you will learn to figure out:

  • Who are we talking to? Why do they care?
  • What are the two types of keyphrases? What pages target which type?
  • How do you build links, authority and ranking potential?
  • What do we publish? And how will it be promoted?
  • What topics, formats and collaborators support lead generation?

You need a new approach to winning traffic and conversions

Some brands buy traffic. They try to win the battle of budgets through brute force or by outsmarting the other advertisers, picking off opportunities on the edge.

The content marketer has a different approach. We win traffic. We earn conversions and grow audiences so large that eventually the advertisers start calling us, trying to buy space on our digital properties.

It’s both an art and a science. Content marketing is perfect for marketers who love to use both halves of their brains.

Who this course is for

If you like to cross channels and combine tactics, if you love both making and measuring things, this course is designed for you.

Content strategy doesn’t require big budgets, but it does take time. You will dominate your competition slowly, patiently. You will win the loyalty of your audience one keyphrase, link, and subscriber at a time.

Once complete, you’ll own a platform that consistently generates high quality leads. You will have the skills and mindset of a content strategist with a clear understanding of how to generate awareness, demand and revenue through content.

This course is right for you if…

  • You have a platform for publishing (CMS and Analytics account)
  • The fundamentals of brand and business are in place (the ability to turn demand into revenue)
  • You have basic writing skills and you’re willing to use them

This course is probably not for you if…

If you’ve ever spoken these words, reconsider taking this course:

  • “My audience doesn’t use the internet. I get plenty of leads by cold calling.”
    …you don’t believe in the power of digital
  • “I need leads yesterday! I can’t afford to wait for momentum to build.”
    …you lack the patience required to build a content program
  • “I would never give away advice! If you want my insights, you have to pay. Besides, my competitors would know my secrets if I shared them.”
    …you are afraid to share information online

If you stand behind any of those convictions, please do not register for this course.

Skills you should have before taking this course

Ideally, this isn’t your first rodeo. You have been exposed to all of the basic concepts and have at least a year of digital marketing under your belt.

  • Basic Google Analytics skills and access to your account
  • Basic writing and publishing skills
  • Some experience in some area of digital marketing (social media, SEO, PPC, blogging, etc.)

Are you a pro at this already? Aspects of this course are advanced. Seasoned content marketers with 5+ years of experience can also expect real practical value.
