9-Step Cheat Sheet to Stealing Your Competition’s Best Content Ideas
Creating quality content that people want to share is the best way to boost your brand’s growth.
If people want to read, view, share and talk about what you’re putting out, you’re sure to see tons of traffic, increased sales, and higher engagement.
But how many times have you spent hours on an article (or another piece of content) only to see it go absolutely nowhere? It isn’t getting the clicks, shares, or comments that you’d hoped for.
Meanwhile, your competition is thriving. That’s why it’s time to steal your competition’s best content ideas (while simultaneously learning from their mistakes).
You obviously shouldn’t ever plagiarize content. However, it’s important to recognize that it’s hard to come up with completely original content ideas in today’s online world.

That’s why you need to use your competition’s content as inspiration to create something even better.
Here’s a nine-step cheat sheet to stealing your competition’s best ideas.

Everyone wants more signups, users, and subscribers. But the problem lies in how to get them quickly and without paying too much.

Your Email Marketing Isn’t Working Because No One Gets Your Emails (and Here’s How to Fix It)
Your email ROI reflects the overall success of all of your email campaigns.
And, on average, email marketing has the highest overall ROI in comparison to other marketing techniques.
It’s a whopping 4,000%. That’s a $40 ROI for every $1 spent on email.
Talk about massive potential!
But, unfortunately, there are many problems.
For example, your email ROI is likely low because your emails aren’t even reaching the inboxes of your recipients. And you probably don’t even know they aren’t if you aren’t tracking them.
Email ROI is all about deliverability. Deliverability refers to the number of emails that make it to the recipient’s inbox without the email provider bouncing it or marking it as spam.
In this post, I’ll tell you about some quick, simple ways to boost the deliverability (and ROI) of your email campaigns.

Spam filters searched for certain flagged words and language and then scored your email based on how many of those phrases your emails contained.
If your spam score was low, your email went into the inbox. If it was high, it would never make it in.
The same factors still apply today, ex..

But simply attempting to strike fear in the eyes of your potential customers could backfire.
It could position your brand in an unfavorable light.
Thankfully, there are a few ways to use fear in marketing to grab attention without it backfiring.
You can implement this strategy without making your potential customers feel bad about themselves and your business.
The key is walking the thin line between a neutral sentiment and all out, fear-based messaging.
Here’s how you can grab more attention without it blowing up in your face.
Why using fear in your ads can increase your CTR
Standing out is the key to generating a higher click-through rate.
We all know this.
It’s especially important when you have no brand awareness.
When your brand isn’t strong, and the average user can’t recall it from a search or an ad, your CTR simply won’t be sky high.
True brand awareness can drive sales for years to come.
