If you're interested in goal setting for your content marketing - and how to take a refined, strategic approach to your work - then episode 58 of The Content Champion Podcast with content marketing expert Robert Gibb of MaxCDN will be required listening.
A highly skilled copywriter and content strategist, Robert focuses on helping tech startups master content marketing - and has increased MaxCDN's blog traffic by a factor of three, generated 10,000 subscribers in less than 6 months, and made blog readers 2.5 times more likely to become a customer. All this by being more strategic with his content marketing and goal setting.
After training as a journalist and creative writer, Robert began freelancing as a copywriter at various agencies, the necessity of having to earn a living getting in the way of him writing the next best selling novel or screenplay.
However, Robert honed his copywriting and content marketing skills, and soon moved sideways into digitally focused marketing work - securing a job with forward-thinking software firm MaxCDN - the successful content delivery network.
When Robert joined the MaxCDN team, it's fair to say the content they had produced so far was not delivering the results they needed. So armed with monthly revenue goals and a more strategic approach to creating and promoting high quality content - Robert and his team got to work.
Fast forward two years, and Robert's new approach - what he calls being in 'strategic mode' rather than just regularly pumping out lower quality content - meant that traffic and subscribers on the MaxCDN blog have increased by a factor of five. More importantly, Robert's goal focused strategy also meant he could prove the worth of all the content being published.
