My number 1 takeaway

What’s the single most important step from our discussion that our listeners need to take away and implement in their businesses?

Invest time into looking into your analytics data and learning what your audience is actually saying back to you. If you’re putting out a load of Facebook posts and they’re getting good engagement in terms of ‘Likes’, yes that’s good – but if it’s the same people that are liking it every single time, your actual reach isn’t growing. Look at what pages aren’t performing on your blog. See what keywords you come up for in Search Console. Invest time in creating and maintaining good content.
