We love this piece, not just as creators of hundreds of landing pages over the years (fist bump to fellow LP folks), but because of the sound advice and the way the piece is constructed.
Big Thinking alert. It’s time to think about the whole content experience, argues Uberflip CMO Randy Frisch.
Ephemeral content – like Snapchat or Instagram Stories – is usually seen as a B2C thing. Contently open our B2B-centric eyes to some possibilities here.
Social media is one area where short-form skills rule. And it’s not the only one. (Want to talk landing pages again?) Although we’d also advise a mix, depending on context. Long-form is equally valuable, for lots of reasons.
Interesting and deep case study here from the CMI, not about one of our clients but from the type of company we work for a lot. We loved how the focus on the customer acted as a north star for that team’s content choices.
Sticking with a category we know well, this is quite the list – it’s specific, about 21 SaaS providers – and with lots of actionable info. Just as we’d expect from Feldman Creative.

As frequent ghostwriters, we’d argued this isn’t everything, but in the spirit of this quarter’s round-up, there is a lot of good advice here. Or just contact us.
And finally, we’ve said the same thing (pretty much) ourselves, but Michele Linn does a good job here of emphasising that your calendar is one of many tactics to get all this right. While your strategy is, well, strategic.
And why 11 links? It’s our favourite prime number.
