What you will learn:

In just 4 hours, you’ll complete a content journey map that will serve as a compass and actionable content framework for driving and converting satisfied web visitors. (Yes, …a CONTENT journey map. Content is the road by which users travel. If your path is scary, confusing or riddled with potholes, …journey abandonment is inevitable. Understanding and plotting a content journey map is vital for converting traffic, regardless of where users enter your website.)

  • Content Journey Maps – How to inventory and plot a respective content journey that optimally serves your target audience? What content types, keywords, emotional triggers, and calls-to-action are appropriate for each stage of the journey stage? i.e. aware > consider > compare > commit. (*Content Journey Profile template provided.)
  • Organic Landing Pages – What types of “dedicated landing pages” (webinars, resource downloads, quizzes, etc.) are needed to assist the journey, and when/where should they be accessible from your main website?
  • Quality Content Recon – How to grade and audit “quality” of content planned/created with scorecards and online polls to ensure successful path to conversion?
