In the realm of digital marketing, “Content is King” has become somewhat of a mantra, reiterated by marketing professionals and digital creators alike. But beyond its surface-level appeal as a catchy phrase, why does this statement hold so much weight, especially in today’s internet-dominated world? Let’s dive into the essence of this statement, exploring its significance and the reasons behind its enduring relevance.

The Foundation of Digital Interaction

At its core, content is the primary medium through which information is communicated on the internet. Whether it’s a blog post, a video, a podcast, or a social media update, content is the vehicle that carries your message to your audience. In a landscape that’s increasingly digital, the quality, originality, and relevance of this content determine the extent of its reach and impact.

The Pillar of SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has become a critical aspect of digital marketing, and high-quality content is at the heart of successful SEO strategies. Search engines like Google prioritize content that is informative, user-friendly, and valuable to readers. Content that meets these criteria ranks higher in search results, thereby increasing visibility and driving more organic traffic to websites. Thus, from an SEO perspective, content isn’t just king—it’s the entire kingdom.

The Key to Engagement and Conversion

Engaging content captures attention, while compelling content retains it. In the digital arena, where attention spans are notoriously short, the ability to engage users with captivating content can make or break an online presence. Moreover, high-quality content doesn’t just attract viewers; it has the power to convert them into followers, subscribers, or customers, making it an invaluable asset for businesses and creators alike.

The Source of Value and Trust

In an age of information overload, trustworthiness and value have become precious commodities. Audiences are more discerning than ever, seeking content that not only informs but also enriches their lives. By providing valuable, accurate, and reliable content, creators and brands can establish themselves as authoritative sources in their respective fields. This credibility is crucial for building and maintaining trust with an audience.

The Driver of Innovation and Creativity

The demand for high-quality content pushes creators and marketers to innovate continually. As audiences grow accustomed to certain types of content, the bar for what is considered engaging or valuable rises. This dynamic fosters creativity and innovation within the content creation space, leading to the development of new formats, mediums, and storytelling techniques. In this way, the pursuit of excellent content drives the evolution of digital communication itself.


While the phrase “Content is King” might seem like a simplistic declaration, its implications are profound and far-reaching. In the digital age, content forms the backbone of online interaction, SEO, engagement, trust-building, and creative innovation. As we navigate the ever-evolving landscape of the internet, the significance of high-quality content remains constant. By investing in content that educates, entertains, and inspires, we can forge deeper connections with our audiences and pave the way for sustained digital success.

Too Busy To Answer Calls Or Give Estimates, You Won’t Be For Long!August 6th, 2022

BLOG POST Too Busy To Answer Calls Or Give Estimates, You Won’t Be For Long I recently ran into a situation where companies were too busy to return calls, and others were too busy to come out and give an estimate. Let me explain, I was trying to help an elderly relative who had just moved into a house with a swimming pool. He called a few companies to clean and open the pool, but they said they were too busy, so I tried to help. Unfortunately, I too ran into a stone wall.

Pools & The Pandemic

What happened during the pandemic is that a lot of people installed pools as they couldn’t leave their homes. So, pool companies as a result have gotten very busy.

Being very shortsighted, they figure this will go on forever. But like most things, at some point their business will slow down and they will regret not having been more helpful and responsive. After all, turning away customers and clients is never a good business decision.

Now, I understand how hard it is to hire people these days. But my thought is this: rather than push away and alienate prospective customers, pay your help more as the market requires you to. One pool company told me they couldn’t even come out for two weeks and gave me a price to take care of the pool. But as the pool hadn’t been used in a couple of years, I wanted the guy to look before just charging. It didn’t really matter, as he never got back to me.

On Hiring:

So say you were paying an employee of your pool company X dollars a week, pay them more. Maybe you won’t be making huge profits, but you will be building up your business during a very difficult economic time in history. Because you are in demand, you can certainly charge higher prices as the market warrants. But to service all these new customers, you will have to pay employees a good wage, plain and simple.

As someone who does a lot of tasks himself, I learned long ago that you can’t do everything yourself. So, when I have new business opportunities, I don’t turn them away, I hire people, many times on a project-by-project basis. By using good people, I can get more work done and my bottom line is improving all the time. Like the pool companies, sometimes I must pay more than I would like, but I always try to take a long view in business. I realize that by taking on clients who will be with me for the long-haul, in the end I am making a smart business decision.

And isn’t that what running a small business is all about, making the best decision for your company and its employees?

“To earn the respect (and eventually love) of your customers, you first have to respect those customers. That is why Golden Rule behavior is embraced by most of the winning companies.”
~ Colleen Barrett, Southwest Airlines President Emerita


Happy Ending

Luckily, the story does have a happy ending. After weeks of trying, I found a company that came right out and gave an estimate, then came back the next day and started work. I will give them a great Google review and help their business. They will also get referrals for me, unlike these other companies were busy and wouldn’t even come out.

Bottom Line:

Treat other people the way you want to be treated, that will ensure you’re in business for a long time and successful. The fastest way to alienate people is by not responding to phone calls and emails, and refusing to come out and even estimate a job.
