Content Marketing 201: Beyond the Basics
Building anticipation is a great technique for getting readers back to your site. Producing a blog series is a great way to achieve this. Not only is it good for building a relationship with your readers, but it’s also great for SEO in that it feeds one of Google’s strongest ranking factors.
I use this method all the time – in fact, this episode itself is part of a series. There are two methods that I use regularly in planning and executing a series strategy. Either method can work, depending on the topic – and your writing style. Learn about each method here in Episode 153 and how to apply it to your own blog, podcast, or vlog.
