Dharmesh Shah on Net Neutrality

  • The new commissioner of the FCC has vowed to strip down the Net Neutrality provisions put into place in 2015. 
  • July 12th: Day of Protest again the repeal
  • HubSpot Co-founder and CTO, Dharmesh Shah, published an article to express his stance against the repeal. 
  • Net neutrality: Principle that Internet service providers (ISPs) and governments regulating the Internet should treat all data on it the same and not discriminate or charge differentially based on user, content, website, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or mode of communication. In practice, this means that ISPs would not be allowed to favor their own services over those of another provider.
  • Without Net Neutrality, cable/internet companies can discriminate against individual content providers and tech companies. They can easily create a competitor and favor theirs over yours.

Main Topic: “The Content Marketing Playbook for Success

4 things to know before starting a content marketing program:

  1. It's a big investment to do it right.
  2. It's a long-term play to see direct benefits
    • Direct benefits: Traffic and leads
    • Everything you do compounds over time.
  3. In-direct benefits can come quickly
    • Creating sales enablement materials
    • Professional development
      • Gives people the opportunity to research, learn, and educate others.
      • Builds expertise
      • Builds ability to communicate your knowledge
    • Company culture 
  4. Need to be different and valuable
    • Don't put out the same content that everyone else is putting out.
    • Need to be different, be quality, and be valuable to rank higher, get shared, and earn traffic. 
    • Test out different mediums/channels, different topics, etc.
      • Solve for people in a new way

How to Get Started/Revitalize Your Content 

  • 1. Define your audience
    • Know your audience inside and out
    • Give them something they want and need.
  • 2. How can you get to your audience with content?
  • 3. Document a quick content strategy
    • Key word is "quick," -- You can iterate over time
    • Mission, audience, schedule, topics discuss, points of differentiation,
  • 4. Manage an editorial calendar
    • Consistency is delightful -- Makes consuming your content a habit.
    • Be agile -- Leave room for newsjacking, new promotions, etc.
  • 5. When creating content, research what’s already out there
  • 6. Spend more time promoting the content you create than you spend creating content.
    • What’s the value in doing this if no one is reading it?
    • Distribute where your audience is hanging out
    • Consider paid promotion on social media
    • Promote, not post!
  • 7. Love thy audience
