This book is meant for newbies but there are one insight that is super-useful for all pro bloggers and solopreneurs.
And that is - don't expect every reader to become a client - most readers will probably read all your free content but not buy anything from you.
I liked Karen's tips about writing and creating a content calendar. I do wish she had included a checklist or cheat-sheet of actionable items at the end of the book - as a reminder to take action on her advice.
Recommended reading, particularly for newbies.
First, tongue in cheek, don't read her book, read the rewritten version that I'll be writing, based on Barnes' own suggestion that solopreneurs do this, generally and openly.
Second, this is indicative of an overarching cynicism based on milking customers for moolah, which, you know...
Karen covers a lot of topics in this book—from creating original content all the way through to utilizing other pieces that people have written that fit with or could help your brand. The part I was most interested in was the original content creation, and although I felt like it wasn’t covered in as much depth as I would have wanted, there were some good points given that were still helpful.
I’d recommend this book to anyone looking for ways to help their business along content-wise. There are lots of tips and tricks out there, but I feel like this book might be one of the more useful ones, because there’s a good variety of information packed into short, easy-to-read chapters. Since the chapters were short, it was a lot easier to get through the book quickly to find the information I needed, too. A useful resource!
I requested a free review copy of this book from the author, and this is my honest opinion of it.
Overall, I didn't really find that. Most of the book focused on basic topics that could readily be found on just about any content marketing site. There was some information that I was aware of, but didn't really focus on (such as PLR and some additional ideas to distribute blog posts).
In short, if you are a person new to the world of content creation, this book will provide a preview of some of the areas you can consider when creating or distributing content. It doesn't have the detail and comprehensiveness that a more advanced content creator and marketer could use.
