DIS Faculty’s Article Featured as the Cover Story in Time Magazine

The August 6th issue of Time Magazine leads with DIS Faculty Lisa Abend’s article focusing on how record numbers of “vacationers are threatening to turn Europe into a theme park” and thereby pushing locals out of the city centers, and how “the continent is pushing back”. Abend identifies the causes for this increase in tourism: from the growth of low-cost airlines and cheaper airfares, to the expanding cruise-ship industry, to Airbnb providing cheaper accommodations, among others. She also highlights what…

Why Content Marketing Works for Me and Not You

Why Content Marketing Works for Me and Not You

It’s funny, when I meet people who are leveraging content marketing, they always tell me one of two things… Either they can’t figure out how to generate traffic (no matter how many blog posts they publish)… OR They’ve figured out how to generate more traffic, but the traffic hasn’t turned into any sales or new customers and they can’t figure out why. Now, I know what you are thinking… there are so many companies that make millions from content marketing…

The Future of SEO: It’s Not What You’re Expecting

What do you think the future of SEO is? And no, I am not talking about what Google will look like 10 years from now… I’m talking about how you’ll be able to rank your site in the future. You know, that one thing that’ll just skyrocket your rankings. So, what do you think it is? I can tell you this… it’s not link building and it’s not on-page SEO.

DIS Refugee Program Launches with Great Success

In 2018, DIS launched the DIS Refugee Program.

Why I Spent $500,000 Buying a Blog That Generates No Revenue

Why I Spent $500,000 Buying a Blog That Generates No Revenue

(If you are wondering, the image of me above was taken when I used to work at KISSmetrics with Hiten Shah… I used to have hair) In early January 2017, I purchased the KISSmetrics website for $500,000. If you go to the site, you’ll notice that it forwards here to NeilPatel.com (which I will get into later in the post). The $500,000 didn’t get me the company, KISSmetrics, or any of the revenue streams. The parent company, Space Pencil, is…

Writing Content That Is Too In-Depth Is Like Throwing Money Out the Window

Writing Content That Is Too In-Depth Is Like Throwing Money Out the Window

You’ve heard people telling you that you need to write in-depth content because that’s what Google wants. And it’s true… the average page that ranks on page 1 of Google contains 1,890 words. But you already know that. The question is, should you be writing 2,000-word articles? 5,000? Or maybe even go crazy and create ultimate guides that are 30,000 words? What’s funny is, I have done it all. I’ve even tested out adding custom images and illustrations to these…
