How to Pivot Your Agency From SEO to Content Marketing with Robb Bailey


There are a great deal of companies that focus primarily on SEO, and that’s a problem. The problem is, it’s easy to think Traffic leads to Revenue… and that ignores a big missing piece. It’s really Conversions lead to Revenue.  That’s why Content Marketing is such an important piece of an overall marketing strategy.

Robb Bailey of PageLadder understood this and shifted his company’s emphasis on SEO to an Inbound approach and has seen massive success from it. As one of Hubspot’s prime case studies for effective Inbound Strategies, Robb and PageLadder have a great deal of insight for you and I highly recommend you take the time and listen if you are using – or thinking of using – a Content Marketing Strategy (hint: you probably should be).
