One of the great puzzles of marketing is where to start. Today, I have a lengthy episode focused on content marketing—how to do it, what social channels to use, and how to plan strategically.

Today, I got a very specific and challenging question from a business owner looking to use content marketing as a lead generation tool for business. Here’s the first part of the question:

What should you focus on if you’re using content marketing as a lead generation tool for your business?

In this episode, I dig deep into the strategy and marketing puzzle that is finding great clients and attracting them to you with strategic content marketing.

Meghan, a business owner, is looking for help creating a funnel to attract more high-quality leads to her service offerings. She helps business owners plan for maternity leave and has a deep dive planner and a coaching offering, but is overwhelmed by the amount of work and time that content marketing will take, and isn’t sure which avenue to start with first (LinkedIn?
