About the Book

From one of today's leading experts in content marketing, Content Inc. is the go-to guide to building a solid small business by establishing a loyal audience before you sell products or services.

Do you create digital content? Well, this is the business model you've been looking for...

In Content Inc., Joe Pulizzi provides a lower-risk, more effective way to create a path to success by re-engineering the process that so often leads to failure: You'll learn how to develop valuable content, build an audience around that content―and then create a product for that audience. Content Inc. walks you through the entire process, showing how to:

  • Choose a topic
  • Unearth an area where little competition exists (break through the clutter)
  • Choose your best channel to build your platform
  • Build long-term customer loyalty (an audience)
  • Start making money from your content
  • Expand your content into multiple channels/platforms
  • Sell your content asset or scale it into a successful business

This updated edition includes new and enhanced coverage of platforms like TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram, a new section about the exit strategy for the model, more practical how-tos, and current examples of companies that have successfully implemented these strategies.

Content Inc. provides an ingenious approach to business based on a profoundly simple concept: Having a singular focus on audience and building a loyal audience directly, provide the best, most nuanced understanding of what products ultimately make the most sense to sell.
