“I’ve built a thriving business JUST from this revenue-focused content plan sprint”—Brendan Hufford

Here's a challenge for you.

Imagine I'm the founder of a productivity software. We're sales-led, with a sales team to serve and a reasonably lengthy sales-cycle.

I've got some funding and now I want to use content and SEO to accelerate growth.

Where should I start?

This is the exact role play we covered in this week's episode.

My guest is the legendary SaaS SEO strategist, Brendan Hufford. He's worked with the likes of Dave Gerhardt to AngelList Ventures to ActiveCampaign.
