Content creation

Medium-form articles

Typical blog-style content—the best way to begin. We target one longer-tail keyword per article, then improve them over time to rank for more & greater volume keywords.

Short-form content

Most effective when taken from medium-form articles. Perfect for organic social media, email newsletters, and paid ads.

Long-form “10x value” content

The popular “Ultimate Guides” and downloadable eBooks/whitepapers. Best produced by building on top of medium-form articles over time.

Content distribution


Syndicating your blog content to Medium publications, LinkedIn, and more. We highly recommend a LinkedIn strategy.

Guest posting

Strategic outreach efforts to contribute guest articles to popular SMB publications and/or receive a backlink to content on your site.


Partnering with non-competitive brands seeking to publish & share value content for SMB audiences. Great for case studies.

Organic mentions

Earned media: media & consumers talking about you on their own. The hardest to achieve unless your product is downright awesome. Can be engineered.

Paid mentions

Buying placements in articles and on social media (not ads). Direct sponsorship and influencer marketing.

Running ads on Google, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, you name it. Effective for quickly testing content relevance & effectiveness in search.
