Becoming THE Expert - The Month in Review (April)

It’s been another busy couple of weeks here at Becoming THE Expert. We've travelled to Glasgow and London and delivered two successful Content Marketing Boot Camps, we’ve announced a new Email and Social Media Masterclass at The Guardian Newspaper and launched this, our new Content Marketing Month in Review newsletter.

We're also in the process of starting work on a series of new digital Content Marketing training videos and I’m just a few thousand words away from completing work on the first draft of my latest book (stay tuned for updates). It’s true what they say, if you want a job doing - give it to a busy man.

10 Things Your Local Business Should Tweet About: Email marketing and Twitter were made for each other.

As such, your email campaigns should always be supported by regular series of tweets. The fact that Twitter is free makes it the ideal accompaniment to a low cost, high performance marketing channel like email, particularly when budgets are tightMore>>


Why Authors, Bloggers, Journalists and Writers Need to Think Like Rock Stars: As a writer, I think I have a pretty cool job. There cannot be many occupations where you are allowed to spend countless hours in private contemplation, just imagining. Clearing my head (which often involves going for a walk or taking a cycle ride along the beach) is a very important aspect of my creative process (or at least that is what I tell my family and the people I work for). When my mind drifts (and it doesn’t take much to start this process), it takes me down a whole new career path. More>>

Becoming THE Expert: An Introduction to Content Marketing - 14 May 2015 (The Wholesale Forums): Content marketing can help your organisation drive new leads, win new business and ultimately increase profits. But many small business owners find it difficult to create compelling content to fuel their content marketing strategy, citing lack of time, lack of ideas or simply the lack of ability.
