Possible to Close a $50k Sale in One Conversation?

He told me about a problem he was facing… and right there on the phone call I gave him the solution.  He took my tip and tested it out.  And it turned out to be the most impactful thing that the company did in 25 years of existence. He got hooked and wanted more.

Pillar Piece

A pillar article is a long-form post that shows people what you’re all about. It shares your passion, mission, and the result you can get for them.

When Content Marketing Goes Wrong

If you ever hire a writer or writing crew, this will save your bacon. It will also save a bunch of frustration for your writers.  In this client’s case, the client didn’t check the outlines or the references. They just approved it. So, of course, the trusty Fubbi team went ahead and created content on a weak foundation.  It would be the same as trying to build a house without having an architect drawing up plans.

if Your Content Marketing Is Working

We run the email calendar of one particular client. One email a day for 30 emails per month. Every email has a call to action to get in touch with the client’s sales team. And if someone does that, they go into the sales team’s calendar. We track this number. And one month those emails generated 310 leads - about $6.50 per sales lead. That’s a good, clear accountable outcome.

When Selling $100k+ Products

It’s about people.  And OFFLINE is a wonderful way to reach busy people. It has novelty. It has cut through.  I’ve literally lost count at the millions of dollars I’ve helped bring in for clients simply by using mail.  And ya know what?

Time Poor, Money Rich People – The Truth About Emotional Buying

Look, let me be honest here. We’re emotional creatures. That’s just the simple truth of it. Because of that, we all buy on emotion. It may vary from audience to audience, but even time poor, rich people do it.

Get Up to 10x Click Through Rate on Facebook Ads

Typically, we do 10 topic articles per theme. So if we have 3 themes with 10 articles a piece, that’s 30 total. The key here, though, is that each theme has a very different assumption. This means that each one has a very different appeal. That’s so we can test lots of genuinely different things.

Grammar in Content – Is It a Big Deal?

However, when speaking to other physiotherapists, the lingo is absolutely essential. The language must be more fact based and technical… otherwise he’ll lose them, too.  What’s the main takeaway from this example? Grammar in content depends on your audience. Figure out who’s listening and use appropriate language. It really is as simple as that.

What’s the fastest way to grow a huge social following?

I have a friend with 650,000 Instagram followers. I asked her how she built her account.  And the response was, “We were producing content for ages. Then one day, we saw our numbers skyrocket. We found out a center of influence in our industry space shared a few of our content pieces.”

Why do we fail?

Failure is natural, it happens to everyone, and sometimes you can’t avoid it. What matters most is how you adjust your mindset to avoid failure, because your mind is where it all begins.  I contemplate this all the time. This is not strictly a content marketing topic - it's a topic that matters to everybody. Let me elaborate...

The other day I was talking to a company with sales of $30 million per year.  They've been in the industry for about 29 years and they're one of the most trusted companies in their industry.  They produce content.  Regular content.
