You’re not alone.
With click-through rates on online ads plummeting and the amount of competition increasing, businesses are looking for results. In a world where there is more noise than ever before, it’s important to create content worth reading, creating and sharing.
Over the last five years I’ve worked with everyone from Fortune 500 companies to startups making the headlines of TechCrunch.

When my clients ask for marketing support, I use the power of content to influence and influence the perceptions of their target audiences.

Content Marketing isn’t just Blog Posts & Tweets
Blogging can increase traffic, improve awareness and drive real results – but it’s not the only type of content that can help your startup.
Neil Patel of KissMetrics used infographics to help his startup go from 0 to 350,000 visitors a month. Oli Gardner of Unbounce used eBooks to make his startup the leader in everything you need to know about landing pages. And the folks at Frank and Oak leveraged Facebook, twitter and Instagram to help their brand become a household name among the fashion connoisseur.
Each of these startups understand and capitalized on the power of content marketing. In fact, they all recognize that content marketing is more than just writing blog posts and that not all content is created equal.
In StandOut, I’ll teach you the key elements that go into the development of an effective content strategy. I’ll share with you a no BS approach to content marketing that will transcend beyond blogging and into the channels that will truly take you to the next level.

Still not sure? Let me try to help by answering some questions:
What if I think the guide sucks?
Well, that would suck…but you can expect a full refund if you reply with a receipt within 30 days. No questions asked. I don’t want you to pay for something that doesn’t provide you with value. It’s the honour system.
Do I have to be an entrepreneur to find it useful?
