Kenny, thanks for taking the time to comment on my post. As a content author I'm surprised you couldn't find even a morsel of positivity in my thinking :)
You outright dismiss my assertion that "content plays a major role" in one's marketing plan? That "a steady flow of new content ...can help you generate more traffic."
I scoured the text for my use of the word "guarantee" and couldn't find it anywhere! Aside from wondering why you've become so cynical, I'm really more curious about what you suggest people do instead of market with content. Images and video instead of content? What are your suggestions of tactics that "play a major role in one's marketing plan and can help generate more traffic?"
An associate of mine likes to share this infographic with people. Thoughts?
Again, thanks for your comment!

As a content author nothing would please me more than for this hypothesis to be bullet-proof. In reality, however, it is only a hypothesis which can be disproven. If steady content were the key everyone who posts actively would win. I do love the possible outcome of the hypothesis, and, if I could sell it, it could make me wealthy beyond dreams. That said, keep writing...and keep hiring writers.
No offense Brad. I have read a few of your posts over the months, or years, and they are always thought provoking. You write well and have a good heart. And, I wish you were 100% dead on with this one. Steady content isn't bad...but, it also is not essential. Neither is it a guarantee for ending in increased traffic, much less conversions.
