In the past, if you stuffed the right keywords into a piece of content, someone might find you but they may not find your content helpful. Today, 90% of content has been created in the last two years so keyword stuffing simply doesn’t work and content creation is becoming a never-ending process. This is a challenge for any content marketer – get people to find you via content so that you can increase brand awareness and drive people to the site.
In this episode of AMP Up Your Digital Marketing, Erin Balsa, Content Marketing Manager for The Predictive Index discusses how to make your content marketing efforts go further by harnessing the power of your employee network.
