Your new book is a great comprehensive reference on acquiring readers for any kind of content. Gave me good perspective on all aspects involved.
The SEO chapter was indeed the best, lots of ideas that I hadn’t heard or thought of before.
Kudos to @stephsmithio for an amazing job on Doing Content Right! As a total newbie to blogging, the guide has been a godsend. I devoured it in a few days and now working my way through the exercises and checking out all the helpful resources. Thank you!
If you're a writer/creator/maker doing any of these:
- Creating a blog
- Writing a newsletter
- Growing your audience
- Trying to get your content to stand out
@stephsmithio's book Doing Content Right is the perfect resource for you.
A thread with some of my fav quotes👇
I feel expanded so much as I read through it while taking notes. It feels like I am seeing things through a fresh lens that feels right and makes sense. I can tell the work you've done, Steph, on the material because it feels comprehensive but not overbearing
Inspired by @stephsmithio publishing her e-book, Doing Content Right
A few highlights from her fun e-book live session last night:
- no one wants to "subscribe." Be more aspirational
- indie-creators undervalue SEO
- "do things that don't scale" applies to audience building
I just bought @stephsmithio’s book on blogging in 2020 and I’m super excited to go through it.
However, it’s also important to not get bogged down in resource overload. There’s a lot of stuff to read!
Find 1-2 resources that cover most of what you want to do and then do it.
It's the easiest thing to start a blog today, but how do you make it stand out in the ocean of content out there? Get a copy of our new partner @stephsmithio 's "Standing Out in 2020" to learn more about how to create, write, and scale blogs successfully to millions of readers📕
Just in case you'd like to know, your Doing Content Right was the first book I bought at @gumroad in 2020.
I went on to buy a few other books/info products later from the platform only because of the trust boost I had through that first purchase. :)
So thank you!
I'm only a chapter into this book and I can't recommend it enough.
If you are serious about blogging, you should check it out.
I love how Steph is doing live sessions in theme with the book. I stayed up last night reading so that I can be ready for her first session today. ☺️
I would say of myself that I read a lot of books.
Some of them were very good, some I didn't like, but none of these books were of as great value as @stephsmithio "Doing Content Right".
You should learn from her and all the experiences she covers in her book.

In the past 2 days, I helped @stephsmithio sell 61 copies of her amazing book "Doing Content Right."
For the longest time, I had doubts about selling to my audience.
- No authority
- Not niche enough
- Bad audience reaction to sales
Here's why I'm glad I powered through 🧵
Hello! Just found your account, followed you and bought your new ebook.
I absolutely loved the content and wanted to thank you for it, especially the chapter in SEO :)
Wondering why there's no mention of webflow though. Any thoughts on the platform? Thanks!
