I worked with our client services team to help optimize processes, and I supported the brand team (IMPACT’s in-house marketing department). Then, I got a virtual knock on my door. “Liz, you’ve been killing it with what you’ve been doing for us so far, but we need you to go be a content strategist and marketer for the sales team,” the IMPACT leadership team told me. “We have big goals and big projects that require your help.” Because I strive to be a team player who understands that, sometimes, you’ll need to pull up your big girl pants and do the job that’s needed, I said yes. I was on-board and ready to do the work. On the inside, however, I was mentally kicking rocks, like a poutier, whinier version of Charlie Brown.

Pillar Content: 4 Important Lessons for Beginners [Series]

By: Liz Murphy March 29th, 2018

Blog Feature

This is the first post in a series about pillar content best practices. I was first introduced to the concept of pillar content many moons ago, when Kathleen told Jessie-Lee and myself that we were going to make one about web design.  At the time, I didn't really understand the concept of pillar content. All I knew was that, even though I was a passionate content creator, the idea of creating some 12,000+ word monolith that had no guarantee of success sounded painful.

How I Got My Entire Team to Create Content -- Without a Fight! [+Video]

By: Ramona Sukhraj February 26th, 2018

Blog Feature

I knew convincing my colleagues to create content would be like pulling teeth, but back in 2015, when our founder and CEO, Bob, insisted we start publishing two (and at one point three) articles a day, I had to get them on board if I was going to get it done -- and keep my head above water.
