You’re only as good as your team – an adage that couldn’t be truer in the workplace, especially as it relates to marketing programming or projects that utilize multiple team members. If your team isn’t on the same page, paragraph, line, word, and character, problems regarding goals can lead to a program breakdown and compromise your organizational integrity.
My 10-year-old daughter (M) and her 11-year-old best friend (K) want to start a business. (They’re both Shark Tank fans). They decided the best idea was a party-planning business.
Whether it’s new blogs, ebooks, or infographics, a time will come when you feel like you’ve exhausted a topic. (You haven’t, but that’s a different conversation.) Instead of racking your brain for a new topic, look at your old content to see if it could use updating.

And I’m guessing you probably aren’t sure.
Do you feel like your SEO strategy team is constantly trying to keep your content and organic search strategy up to Google’s standards? It’s almost like trying to impress a date – we need the right lines (keywords), or Google won’t ask us out again.
