Course overview

Be the CEO of your content

You're not a Content Marketer. You're the CEO of your brand's content.

This course is for you if...

01

You're sick of your content team playing second fiddle to the rest of marketing.

02

You want a sustainable marketing strategy that's not reliant on ads.

03

You already have a company blog and you want that content to do more for your brand.

Key outcomes

Build a flywheel

Build your own content engine that ensures ongoing production. And without breaking the bank.

Fuel your marketing strategy

Develop a content plan that serves as the base for your marketing strategy.

Define success

Ultimately, page views and search rank are vanity metrics. Measure the true value of your content investment.

Generate ideas

Think beyond the traditional keyword research strategy and learn to uncover new opportunities on a repeatable basis.

Master managing up

Leverage content across your marketing team, learn to hire SEO and content agencies, and manage leadership's expectations.

Repurpose like a pro

Marketing teams don't need brand new content all the time. Repurpose and distribute so you can spend your budget wisely.

Leverage AI

...without compromising your brand, integrity, or originality. We'll learn how savvy marketers (and writers) are using GPT tools.

        Take this course if you want promotions, raises, and recruiters reaching out to YOU instead of the other way around. Amanda's the GOAT. 🐐

        Content Marketing 201 is a must-have course for content marketers who want to level-up. The lessons give you a fresh perspective on how to create useful and impactful content that goes beyond the usual vanity metrics and SEO brownie points. Amanda's also a terrific teacher who brings great energy to the live sessions. Highly recommend!

        Amanda taught months' worth of lessons in 2 succinct weeks. This is by far one of the most valuable experiences that I've had in the years of continuing professional education. I would take this course three times over and pay twice as much, at minimum.

        Amanda shifted my thinking on how to leverage social media platforms. Companies I've worked for always use it as a broadcasting tool. But social media is a content platform in its own right. I really appreciated the tools, supporting resources, and breakout sessions during the course to refine my content creation process!

        This course helped me think about content creation differently, and more creatively! The biggest thing I will take away is to think of content in terms of its ingredients, or component parts. Using this concept will help to both create better content and repurpose it more effectively.

        I found the frameworks for understanding content "recipes" - aka combining different content types (ingredients) together based on how/who you want to engage with your content very helpful for organizing my thoughts. And I loved the exercises to practice creating effective hooks and titles for content!

        I learned there are so many options for creating a great marketing strategy that fits my company and my founder’s personality. Amanda gave me a menu of choices along with a strategic approach.

        In this course, Amanda introduced us to useful new concepts, like capstone content and zero-click content. Both of these helped me get a whole new perspective on creating and tailoring content pieces, designing a long-term content strategy, and it changed the way I perceive content creation and distribution.

        If you're getting started in content marketing, this is a great course to go on. Amanda has been there and done it and knows her stuff! She's definitely a great person to learn from.

Marketing Manager, ConvertFlow
        There aren't many who understand how to tie content strategy back to growth, and I don't think there's anyone more knowledgeable in that regard than Amanda Natividad. She's one of the preeminent leaders in the field of marketing today.

        Amanda is a true marketing G — she understands full stack marketing from the bootstrapped stage to millions in revenue at scale. I've learned boatloads from her and 10,000% recommend diving into her course.
Michael Lim

        Watching Amanda execute her content marketing strategy from the sidelines has been mind-boggling. She's crushing it. Her free content is already well worth paying for. And now you're telling me we can learn her secrets and build our own strategy *with her help*? That's a no-brainer.
Katelyn Bourgoin

Founder, Customer Camp
        Amanda is a content marketing Swiss Army knife — she’s done it across all industry types for companies like Fitbit, Growth Machine, and D2C brands. What’s even more powerful is how well she breaks down real-world, applicable content strategy and teaches it to others with ease.
Jeremy Moser

        I especially appreciate Amanda's heart-forward, generous, and irreverent approach. It's thanks to her mentorship that I got hired at Readwise — so yes, I will be shamelessly plugging her new course.
