How to Create Better Blog Content in Less Time {Podcast}

By | May 20, 2015

If you ask any marketer, executive or entrepreneur why they don’t blog, chances are good you’ll get a similar answer:

They don’t have time. 

Sure, there might be other barriers to entry – lack of knowledge, tools or confidence. But, the one common denominator I’ve heard across all industries and job positions is that they lack the time to blog.

Chances are good that your business might recognize the importance of content marketing and creating content on a blog. You might even realize that blogging can help establish your business as an authority in your niche and attract the right kind of prospective customers.

But, when it comes down to getting the job done, you and your colleagues struggle to carve out the time. Blogging always seems to be pushed to the back burner.

Does that sound familiar?

Marketing MVP: Crowdfunding 

Every week, we highlight a person or business that is really rocking their marketing efforts to give you some inspiration on how you can level up with your marketing.

This week, instead of highlighting a person or business, Stan explains why he’s bullish on using crowdfunding for your business.
