About 5-6 years ago, I agreed to work with a gentleman here in Austin to develop a website. For my time in developing the website and since he owned the domain, we agreed to split the advertising revenue.
At the end of our 2-year agreement, the same gentleman had a fallen out with mutual business partners about another website we operated. It was a pretty bad fallen out too, involving legal and lawsuits.
Allegedly, this gentleman had possession of a domain that was personally not his. He forced the company to purchase another domain name because he held the old name ransom.

But how? After all, you manage to establish a decent content marketing strategy, and are off to the races consistently writing and publishing content.
Then a few months into your content marketing excursion, or maybe you’re in the planning stage if you move a bit slower, you realize that content marketing is as much a full-time assignment as serving your customers.
You write and schedule post after post with keyword after keyword focus only to see minimal traffic and search ranking increase.
You have the first part of the equation down, which is writing, scheduling and publishing content that’s engaging to your reader audience (potential customers).
Although search engines are finding and indexing your content to share with the world of readers and potential customers in need of your business offering, what are you doing to share your content outside the walls of your website? Continue reading
