We love curating tips from other marketing minds.  Here are a few excellent websites/experts/tips from around the web.

  1. Contently — Contently helps brands create great stories, engage audiences, and deliver business results — at scale. We do that with powerful software, world-class creative talent, and patent-pending technology that ties content performance to business goals. What I love is their blog and post organization. Well written and organized.
  2. Quicksprout — Quicksprout provides simple, visually interesting how-to guides and pdf files. There’s a ton of content on their site about creating content, SEO, social media, etc. Started by internet genius Neil Patel who is also the co-founder of Crazy Egg, Hello Bar and KISSmetrics. He helps companies like Amazon, NBC, GM, HP and Viacom grow their revenue. The Wall Street Journal calls him a top influencer on the web, Forbes says he is one of the top 10 online marketers, and Entrepreneur Magazine says he created one of the 100 most brilliant companies in the world. He was recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and one of the top 100 entrepreneurs under the age of 35 by the United Nations. Neil has also been awarded Congressional Recognition from the United States House of Representatives.
  3. Copyblogger — Copyblogger is a great site that prides itself on building Copyblogger with CONTENT marketing.

If you are struggling with creating content and want to know where to turn for tips, resources and great tools, these three sites should have enough to keep you busy for a while.

Oh, and one more thing: Kevin Spacey rules. Just sayin’…this clip from Content Marketing World frames the need for content / story in building brands and businesses. A MUST WATCH video…
