Let’s get this out of the way: 2020 has been a nightmare. Nevertheless, the content marketing show must go on. User-generated content (UGC) campaigns put all that passion, knowledge, and artistic talent on display for others to see, learn from, and enjoy. One of the easiest ways to get started with UGC is to collect user reviews, product videos, brand-centric memes, or other assets your fans post.
Understanding search intent can be the secret ingredient that brings your content strategy from okay to outstanding. As an SEO Strategist at a digital marketing agency (Brainlabs), we often find clients on the brink of ranking success. They’re sitting on stellar content that simply isn’t ranking for their target keywords. Why is that? Oftentimes, the keywords and the intent simply don’t match.
Think about the time, energy and resources you put towards acquiring new customers. Now, how much time, energy and resources do you put towards increasing the revenue you get from your existing customers, a.k.a customer expansion? If you’re like a lot of SaaS companies, chances are you’re fixated on customer acquisition. Customer expansion is an extremely underrated growth strategy that SaaS companies take for granted.

“Guest posting,” done right, isn’t a dirty word. I’ve used guest posting to build my brand and set up my own link-building agency. While rejection comes with the territory, you can do a few things to improve your chances of success. The most common mistake is Googling for listicle posts that list industry blogs (e.g. “saas blogs that accept guest posts”).
When Bob Moesta asked me to help him with something, I jumped at the chance. In this case, it was writing a foreword for his new book Demand-Side Sales 101: Stop Selling and Help Your Customers Make Progress. Bob and I have talked sales for years, and I’m so pleased his ideas are finally collected in one place, in a form anyone can absorb.

50 milliseconds. Less than a second. Once someone lands on your website, that’s about how long it takes for them to form an opinion about your product. First impressions really are everything—score a positive one within this tiny timeframe, and it might just result in the person sticking around, following your CTA and signing up for a trial.

Most myths are harmless. Gum takes seven years to digest. Sharks don’t get cancer. Lightning never strikes the same place twice. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for most SEO myths. At best, they’re slightly misleading. At worst, they lead you to waste precious time, money, and resources on things that will never improve SEO.
