Why Content Marketing is Essential to Scale Your Business in 2023
In today’s content-heavy marketing landscape, providing valuable, interesting, and relevant content is crucial for building a positive brand image. Studies have shown that 63% of consumers have a more favorable perception of brands that offer valuable content (NewsCred Insights). Additionally, content marketing generates three times as many leads as outbound marketing, while costing 62% less (Content Marketing Institute). Although social media content is effective for reaching new audiences and testing messaging, it lacks the long-term impact of other content types.

To help you get ahead and focus on other areas of your business, I’ll share an overview of my content creation process. By implementing this workflow, you can free up valuable time for other essential tasks.
Here’s a breakdown of my process:
- Planning: Create a content schedule outlining daily posts, including lead generation, sales, affiliates, podcast promotions, and going live.
- Repurposing: Repurpose live content into social media clips and emails.
- Content Creation: Record podcasts on Fridays, go live on Mondays for repurposing, and create a week’s worth of content at a time.
- Organization: Develop a standard operating procedure (SOP) to ensure consistency and efficiency in content creation.
