AS SEEN ON
We operate on the front lines of content marketing.
We care about content – it’s our product.
We’ve rolled up our sleeves, invested millions of dollars into our own digital assets, and rode the Google rollercoaster for over a decade.
Content marketing is still the best investment you can make for your service, brand, or ecomm business.
Authenticity is everything in content today.
We will only share things we’ve actually done, seen work and would invest our own funds in.
We create content for real people, by real subject matter experts. That’s how you grow a lasting content marketing strategy.
Great content will always have a place in our digital world. But, best-in-class content is a moving target and not everyone agrees on what that looks like.
Our Approach: We’re in this for the long game.
Our advice is not going to be the easiest, quickest, or cheapest. We’ll never make outlandish promises we can’t keep.
We will always lead with what we’ve done, and what we’ve seen work in the real world.
We won’t share advice here we wouldn’t spend money on for our sites.
We bring real, solid advice we stand behind.
Where is content marketing going?
We believe that content marketing is still the best bang for your marketing dollars, but audiences are demanding more.
There is a ton of advice out there on SEO, affiliate marketing, content creation, digital tools…
And, there are a lot of people sharing their latest monetization secrets.
But how can you tell the real from the hype?
That is what we’re here for.
We are here to help others navigate the world of digital content marketing, bringing content forward for years to come.

Encouraged by his wife, he started to spent nights and weekends in front of his laptop, all while working his day job, teaching himself the craft of building sites. That $1000 initial investment has created millions of dollars in current asset value amongst the portfolio and he’s even sold a few sites along the way. Today, Ewen continues to build and grow his growing portfolio (150+ niche authority sites), testing new playbooks and moving into niche markets where him and his team map the content universe.
