Just finished reading "Doing Content Right" by @stephsmithio. My verdict: pure value, from title to the back cover! 👏
What I loved most is that it didn't promise any quick hacks. Content is a long game, but it's the best way to stand out online 👇
As a creator, one of the best books I've read this year is @stephsmithio's Standing out in 2020: Doing Content Right.
Steph leads the @TheHustle's Trends team, so she knows how to create, write, and scale a successful blog & newsletter to millions of readers.
A thread 👇
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!
Last week I picked up a copy of @stephsmithio's "Doing Content Right". I'm only about halfway through it but it's so full of actionable tips for growing your blog or newsletter. If you're growing your online audience then you need to read it NOW. 👇🏻

I'm currently reading @stephsmithio's 'Doing Content Right' book (it's 🔥)
It reminded me of a reply I sent to her newsletter in April 2019.
Without knowing, the idea for @100daysnocode was cookin in my 🧠 and some lessons on education + #nocode can be had from it.
"Don't forget that building a digital property takes time. It's a marathon, not a sprint. If your goal is to find a shortcut to riches, content is not your best bet."

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
Bonus: More amazing people to follow
@anthilemoon - founder of @ness_labs and prolific thinker. Her newsletter, Maker Mind, and blog are two of my favorite finds of 2020.
@stephsmithio - I really enjoyed her book Doing Content Right. Devoured it within days of getting it.
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
The best guides on launching I've seen so far:
• Doing Content Right by @stephsmithio
• Make + Shine by @anthilemoon
• Make by @levelsio
I'd love to know about other guides out there too, especially if there's like a 2 page PDF cheatsheet somewhere 😅
