Are You Prepared For Content Marketing Getting Harder?

Although I am working on a flu redux, last night I decided to throw caution to the wind and have a glass of wine with dinner. I opted for a Malbec with a screw cap; that low barrier to entry calling my name. Remember when screw caps used to signify poor quality wine? Boone’s Farm. [...]

Why You Needed A Content Strategy (Yesterday)

Having a content strategy answers some big questions like 'where to post our content' and 'how much content should we produce,' 'what kind of tone and language should we use.'
