Just because you’ve published your content doesn’t mean your target audience will see it.  Making content discoverable by the right people is a stumbling block all content marketers face.  I’ll be digging into how to drive content discovery next week at Content Marketing World, in a session titled “10 19 Online Discovery Tips that Will Get Your Content Promoted.

Learn how to surface your content so your target audiences can find it, using tactics and best practices derived from my own experiments, smart things I’ve seen others do, and what the data tells us is most effective.   Hope to see you there!
