Does your content generate reads, but not leads?

It might be because your initiative doesn’t have enough types of content, says Jay Baer of Convince & Convert. Your content marketing program needs both bricks and feathers to convince people to take action.

Feathers are the lightweight social and blog posts that attract customers. Bricks are the heavier content pieces that collect leads and drive conversion. Balance them both and turn content from a dead-end into a road to success.

Watch the full webinar replay to hear from Jay and learn how to:
-Map out your conversion journey
-Create a balance of bricks and feathers that drives results
-Measure the effectiveness of each piece of your content journey
