It’s not even a princess. In the castle of all things content-related – web pages, blogs, videos, print materials – content is a peasant.
I read lots of content every day. Most of it I throw into the moat to feed the gators. It’s chum. Odds and ends and bits and pieces used to bait or hook the unsuspecting, yet hopeful, purveyor of useful information.
So if content is not king, what is? What will you use to reel in the customer?
Smart, savvy, engaging, useful, effective, relevant, entertaining, damn that’s good solutions.
There are problems everywhere:
I can’t reach millennials.
No one watches my video.
I need more subscribers.
