One of the greatest mistakes that people make with content marketing is that they put all their effort into creating great content but little or no effort into promoting it. In the Blog Post Promotion Ultimate Course, Kristi Hines shows you the tactics, tools, and strategies that she uses to get thousands of social shares and readers for her articles.
Kristi has written popular guides and articles for high profile sites like Kiss Metrics, Social Media Examiner, HubSpot, and Unbounce that have been shared hundreds to thousands of times. Since Kristi is able to get her articles to spread, she is able to earn over $1,000 for a single article that she writes.
Some examples include:

I think this is a great resource for anyone who wants to promote their content and get it to spread much faster than normal.
