Welcome to Episode 121 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast we talk with marketing leader Nate Turner, the co-founder of Ten Speed, a tech-enabled content optimization company focused on helping companies get more results from the content they already have on their site. Nate talks with us about some of the biggest mistakes he sees companies make and how, with the correct structure, they can write or modify content to improve their organic traffic and conversions.

If you’ve seen a decline in organic traffic to your website or if your site seems to have hit a plateau, you’ll find our discussion with Nate extremely helpful. He emphasizes the importance of understanding your audience and topics that will interest them so that you generate good, relevant search traffic and ultimately reduce your conversion costs.

So if you want to know:

  • The importance of having a holistic content and blog strategy
  • Why you can’t just measure the effectiveness of your content by how much revenue it generates
  • About the need to balance short-term revenue and long-term growth
  • Why you need to take both external and internal competition into account when structuring content
  • Why you need to make time now to focus on SEO
