Content marketing…

Does even the phrase send a shiver down your spine (and not of delight)?

Thing is, content marketing is more important than ever but it doesn’t have to take hours or days of effort to produce great content as I demonstrated with Money Magnets.

The key, though, lies in that word ‘great’ because anything less than that is not going to enhance your business or your brand.

Never fear because this week’s Weekend Takeaways is devoted to helping you produce just that as quickly and easily as possible…

And let’s kick off with this excellent tutorial on content creation hacks that will have you churning out the good stuff with ease:
