Engage customers with great content.
Measure results. Repeat.
Today, when customers need to look
for a solution or purchase a product
the first place they go to is Google…
Where if your product information
does not appear on the first page of
the search results, bye-bye….
If the first few lines of the search
result aren’t relevant, you lose…
Where even if you spend $100s buying
Google ad words, they’re ignored
because consumers have trained
themselves NOT to respond to them
It’s tough being a marketer today and
finding new ways to entice and

Are these false positives?
Am I creating a lot of
content to “feed the
content beast” or am
I really engaging with
those prospects with
a propensity to buy?
Is more content the answer?
Is better content the answer?

applicable to today’s buyer’s journey.
