Consulting

As it regards assisting businesses, I have a singular goal: To help brands recognize and enjoy the surest course to success.

In large part that entails getting stakeholders to lose their obsession with the shiny elements of marketing and instead focus on those aspects that’ll move the needle for the brand.

Content Development

Any brand endeavoring to create valuable content for its audience would do well to steal an idea from Greek physician Hippocrates, who famously said, “First, do no harm.”

I work with brands of all sizes to help them recognize the value of worthwhile content, in addition to assisting them in the content creation process.

Create Shorter Content for More Content Marketing Wins

Create shorter content. That’s the frequent answer I give to brands looking to grow their reach via content marketing. Typically, a look of shock washes across their faces as they envision the SEO value lost from not being able to stuff myriad keywords in the now-shortened copy. Truthfully, creating shorter content is simply a better…

Brands as Publishers: The Most Dangerous Content Marketing Lie

Brands as publishers? Rubbish! Your brand doesn’t need to be a publisher to be successful at content marketing. In fact, publishing your own content could actually be a detriment to your business. I attacked the logic of brands as publishers before, making the point that publishing content is one thing but attempting to adopt a…
