Radically Honest Content – Grow your Company by Helping & Telling the Truth, by Andreas Karle

When 14.07.2022
Where Selina Secret Garden & Cowork
What Being radically honest as a person and a company can be a huge competitive advantage. People are desperate to receive accurate and honest information these days. And you can become the person they trust to deliver this kind of information. Creating content that taps into your customers’ pain points without being salesy is a challenge to most businesses. However, honesty tends to be the best approach, instead of trying too hard to convince your audience you’re their best option. But how can you make this work for you? What kind of content can you create? How does talking about your shortcomings actually benefit you? This is what you have to understand to nail the “radically honest” approach.

SEO Pains & Challenges

The ‘pain’ can be about the work itself (a specific SEO problem), or about how to work together with other teams, or even about how to get help if you work as a freelancer. It can be anything SEO related basically. The idea is that we all help each other and that everyone leaves the meetup with some helpful insights they can apply in their work. If you’re not an SEO but you work directly with one and you want to share your pains and challenges, you’re welcome too!
