It’s no secret, I am a huge fan of content marketing.
You’re reading this blog post on my website.
That has a video at the bottom.
Over the years, I have published 400+ marketing blog posts on various different blogs (275 on this one, 120 on this one and 12 on the one you’re reading right now).
I have answered 131 questions on Quora.
Posted 67 stories on Medium.

Recorded and posted 317 videos uploaded to YouTube.
