A welcome note. Housekeeping. And the guest lineup this season. (Oh, and the update checklist)

Please, please, come in, make yourself at home!

Hi!

Welcome to How the F*ck 👋

My mission is to help you become a better search-first organic marketing strategist through absolutely 🔥 case studies, strategies, interviews, and templates.

What does "better" mean?

👉 Producing quality: Your content is engaging to the right audience.

👉 Producing results: Your content gets eyeballs + converts.

👉 Producing scale: You do both of the above with speed.

Quality content is the foundation of all organic marketing, that's why it's so important to learn how to get it right at scale.

Each week, expect a leading search expert to drop knowledge like it's hot.

We'll share their deepest secrets for content, SEO, and social success, so you can shortcut your journey to the top.

Definition: I use the term "search-first marketing strategist" a lot. I created this term because great SEO doesn't exist in isolation, it's a piece of the growth puzzle. Great SEOs go beyond traffic and think holistically about using search to grow revenue.

Season Two Overview

You may have noticed that season 1 (the first 37 podcast episodes) is a little different from season 2.

That's because this is the SEO edition of How the F*ck.

As a startup marketer, I've seen a ton of repeatable revenue growth stem from investing in SEO.

Over time, it became my passion to understand how SEO can contribute to the core growth engine of a startup.

I've found that most marketers don't invest in SEO early enough, most invest in the wrong content types, and most SEO strategies fail to move the company's key KPIs.

I'm not convinced many people really know what they're doing with content and SEO.

This season is about to change that.

I've got a lot to share on this topic, and so do my expert interviewees—trust me, there's some strong experience in this season's guests.
