You know just as well as anyone that to succeed online you need to produce regular content. Sounds easy enough, but then you discover that content isn’t just content and you need to produce “quality” content if you want to make a difference.
And that’s where things can go awry. If you are of the mind that some content is better than no content and take on the task yourself or find the cheapest content provider possible, there can be repercussions that are felt for years to come.

What Do You Want People to Think?
The question is, how do you want people to perceive you and your business?
Let’s assume that all prospects are seeing you for the first time when they land on that blog post, web page or social media post. High-quality content says:
