Introducing Content Marketing Training Powered
by Successful Practitioners

Online content marketing – whether as a consultant, entrepreneur, small business owner, or in-house content creator – is as tough as it is rewarding.

We know. We built Copyblogger Media with online content and smart copywriting – and without venture capital, advertising, or an outbound sales team – into a thriving company with over 100,000 customers. We’re one of the few who can honestly claim we got here by purely practicing what we teach.

We practicewhat weteach

Now we’d like to take you behind the scenes for a closer look and a deeper education. One that will pull back the curtain on the topics, tactics, and strategies that don’t show up in public blog posts.

Over the last 15 years (before content marketing became the “it” thing), we had to first figure things out for ourselves, making numerous mistakes and missteps along the way.

We’ve also sifted through a decade of the best tips, tactics, and strategies from a mountain of expensive training programs, books, live conferences, podcasts, websites, and years of consumer and business-to-business research – all while making sure to filter the champions from the charlatans.

This is your opportunity to become a content marketing authority, and avoid the uncertainty and outlandish time and expense… by getting it done for a daily investment less than the change you find in your couch.
