    That was really a great infographic Fabrizio.. I remember getting confused myself about what content marketing really was.

    I guess it’s been about three years ago now I met a girl online who had visited my blog. I of course went to hers and bless her heart, it was horrible. We got to chatting and she understood the importance of having a nice looking blog and the rest is history.

    We became part of the same mastermind group and she now has a very successful content marketing company in Canada. She really knows her stuff, has moved into an office, hired her own staff and they are creating this first product to help their customers. She’s someone I’m so blessed to have met early on. She’s helped me understand the most just how important content marketing really is.
