Orbit Media Studios’ Andy Crestodina has shared three real-life b2b content marketing strategies driving big results.
He says, “There are so many ways to approach B2B content marketing. So many goals. So many audiences. So many channels. So many formats. It’s no wonder that content strategies vary widely.
Today we are breaking down three real-world B2B content strategy examples.
These are actual marketing programs built by real companies, fighting in the content arena. Each is working hard to drive awareness and demand every day but in very different ways.
- Databox, John Bonini
- Animalz, Jimmy Daly
- Enchanting Marketing, Henneke Duistermaat
Let’s meet the content strategists behind these programs. I talked to each of them and they were very generous in sharing the details of their strategies and the results of their marketing efforts”.
There are no two ways about it: You can’t have a successful site without traffic. Ideally, you won’t have to pay to get it and it won’t take a lot of work to get it.
That’s why The Rhodes Brothers, Matt Rhodes and John Rhodes created One Minute Traffic Machines.
It shows you how you can get free traffic from a pool of 88 million buyers.
So you don’t need Facebook ads. You don’t need paid ads of any kind. So marketers with empty pocketbooks can still bring good traffic to their sites.
This can help you regardless of the niche you sell in. These 88 million buyers have bought products in thousands of niches.
These are the clicks you want in your business, people who have bought before and who want to see what you have to sell.
One Minute Traffic Machines explains the whole process.
It is on sale for a reduced price this week only.
The special benefit of this new traffic system is that it gives you set-and-forget traffic.
And Matt Rhodes says you even get paid to build these machines.
You can do it over and over again in as many niches as you kike; as they say, “Rinse and repeat”.
It’s easy. It’s fast. Anyone can do it.
■ You don’t need an email list or squeeze page.
■ You don’t need a web site or a blog.
■ You don’t need experience or education.
■ You don’t need Facebook, or Twitter or LinkedIn.
■ You don’t any video or audio or anything.
Free traffic is a wonderful thing for any marketer, especially a beginner. One Minute Traffic Machines shows you how.
Here are the 4 important points to keep in mind:
✓ They give you free traffic
✓ You get paid to build them
✓ They run on autopilot
✓ You can do this over and over and over.
These traffic machines you build can last for years, continuing to bring you fresh traffic.
Plus, you can sell anything you want in any niche:
• Amazon products, print on demand products, dropshipping products
• Info products, digital products, e-books, online courses, and more
• Kindle books, print on demand books, and anything like that
• Coaching, consulting, agency, strategy calls, services, and beyond
• Fundraisers, charity, local events, and any kind of crowdfunding

Continuous algorithm updates bring new changes to the way Google search treats your content. By optimizing different content formats, you can continue to get more traffic.
Yoast contributor Fleur Heesen has published an article on whether you should optimize your content for questions.
Heesen says, “So, as we’ve seen, Google is getting a lot better at understanding questions. And they’re not only looking for answers to questions, but also for questions to answer, so they can help their users find what they’re looking for.
To make that happen, Google wants you to write natural, user-friendly copy. They want you to write with your readers in mind, not with Google in mind. In other words, they want you to optimize for questions people would naturally ask, not for keyword-ese questions. And if you do, this allows for increased organic search visibility, for example in featured snippets, answer boxes, and “People also ask” sections.
But that’s not the only reason why it’s good practice to optimize for questions. Research shows that questions are super engaging. They trigger something in your brain: after reading or hearing a question, you literally can’t think of anything else. The human brain can only think about one idea at a time. So when people see your question on your site or in the search results, they are forced to consider that question. And that can be quite a powerful tool”.

Local business owners are generalists. They have to do everything at their business or hire someone rlse to do it. They don’t have time to be experts at copywriting, marketing strategy, and media selection. They probably know almost nothing about what it takes to do good marketing online.
That’s why they need a marketing expert like you to fill this valuable role in their company.
But you may have a problem. Your expertise is online marketing.
• How do you build a business selling to offline businesses, showing them they need you online skills?
• How do you create a professional relationship with customers in the offline world, so they respect you? and honor their contract and pay you?
• How do you find and nourish prospective customers?
• How so you build a marketing funnel, starting with a “foot in the door” service that is so good they will have a hard time refusing?
These skills are critical to building your marketing agency business with offline clients.

Octopus was just released by Tom Yevsikov and Gaurab Borah.
As you may know YouTube is the world’s second-most-popular search engine. Once they search, they watch a lot of videos. A lot of people use it, and that’s an understatement.
As a result of its popularity, YouTube can be one of the best marketing channels on earth.
Yevsikov and Borah’s new software is simple to use and has let them get millions of visitors to their offers for free. The software is empowered by a set of simple tactics for how to use it. Together, they have produced the results Yevsikov and Borah have realized.
And, to top it off, they were able to achieve these results without being on camera and without building up personal authority on YouTube..
Octopus is what they call “the 4-in-1 YouTube takeover bundle”, consisting of software, resources and tactics that you can apply to your own marketing, and you can get started today.
Just imagine what you would do if you had 1,000,000 visitors, yourself, as they did. (Of course, YMMV.) And these aren’t random visitors. They are targeted, niche-specific, engaged, and sent to you directly from YouTube.
(And it doesn’t even have to be your own YouTube account to get these visitors.)
That kind of boost could make a big difference in your business and even in your life.
With Octopus, it doesn’t matter if are selling your own products, selling affiliate products, promoting CPA offers, inviting people to a webinar, or whatever else your business might be. YouTube can help you get free visitors to your offer.
Octopus supports a variety of (three, in fact) monetization tactics using YouTube, to get the most results from your effort. (By the way, they report that even beginners can start with only 30 minutes a day dedicated to these tactics. Once you have some experience, scale it up to an hour or more to grow your business even faster.
This software is brand new. Take a look now and get the first mover advantage, here: Octopus.
The tactical training that comes with the software includes detailed and step-by-step video lessons, all presented by a professional, native English speaking marketer. They explain exactly what you should do to replicate the successful process followed by the creators.

E-commerce SEO helps you to optimize your e-commerce store pages to improve search engine rankings and drive traffic. By improving your search engine presence you can boot your sales.
I Love SEO contributor Gianluca Fiorelli has published a seven-part guide on ‘Optimizing Ecommerce for Google Images and Visual Search’.
Fiorelli says, “In this guide, I will present you why and how to optimize your images for obtaining the most from both the Google Images Search vertical and Images Box in Universal Search, Rich Results with images, other Google SERPs’ features and from the more and more pervasive presence of Google Lens in every Google Search environment for your Ecommerce websites.
Images and Visual Search is a topic I talk about and write about since when Google started experimenting with the Images Search tags almost 4 years ago, a time when the majority of the SEOs were dismissing them saying it was just Images SEO, hence something that did not need to be prioritized.
Dismissing Images and Visual Search as a secondary SEO task would be deeply myopic now as it was before.
The worldwide status of crisis and suspended activity for practically any kind of physical shop makes it even more urgent that Ecommerce owners and businesses focus all the attention and efforts on visual shopping.
This guide is a humble attempt to guide you and offer you ideas and ways to optimize your category and product pages for it”.
The coronavirus pandemic is getting worse. It has created a global havoc and businesses are undergoing a big recession.
Let’s try to find out how this pandemic is affecting the marketing agencies Orbit Media Studios’ Andy Crestodina analyzes this impact.
Crestodina says, “Let’s take the temperature. We start with a broad question about demand for marketing services. Most agencies report a negative impact. No surprise.
But marketing is a broad category, encompassing a huge range of services. The impact to demand for those services ranges widely.
The industry focus is a bigger correlation with impact (more below), which shows up clearly in the B2B or B2C question. Agencies who service clients in B2C industries are more impacted, for now at least”.
