Paid Traffic for Content Promotion with Daniel Daines-Hutt KDS: 027

Daniel Daines-Hutt

Daniel Daines-Hutt was one of those people that completely over-delivered as a guest on the podcast.

I’d love to tell you that this always works out swimmingly, but it doesn’t.

In the case of Daniel not only did he completely over-deliver on the show, but I think it’s safe to say we’ve become friends and I look forward to growing this friendship.

Daniel got started online with e-commerce and found he was really good at marketing and digital strategy, which actually allowed him and his partner, Freyja Spaven, to stay in New Zealand on an Entrepreneurial Visa (who knew such a thing existed).

It’s hard to ignore someone who has written only 9 posts in 2 years but gets hundreds of thousands of visitors a month. They started AmyMyContent because they wanted to build an asset. When they first started, they hired an intern and created SOPs (standard operating procedures), turned that into training, then began publishing case studies on their blog to share the success of what they were doing (side note: case studies are one of my favorite types of content to read).

There's a big disconnect between the paid traffic guys and the inbound marketing guys. You should be doing both. @ampmycontent Click to Tweet
