Doing Content Right by @stephsmithio 👇


Finally finished working through all of @stephsmithio's Doing Content Right. This book is meaty! Well worth the $40 (and more tbh).

Here were the parts that stood out to me.


Reading "Doing Content Right" by @stephsmithio. Love the hands-on approach, no mumble jumble, no cutting corners. Quality is defined by what is left out as much as by what is included. Go get it, you'll have an edge on the game bit.ly/steph-smith

I'm only a chapter into this book and I can't recommend it enough.

If you are serious about blogging, you should check it out.

I love how Steph is doing live sessions in theme with the book. I stayed up last night reading so that I can be ready for her first session today. ☺️

Such a good framework for discovering opportunity. From ⁦@stephsmithio⁩’s new book.

Honestly, I bought this last week and it's been blowing my mind. So much to learn but thankful for such a resource! And waking up to a bonus chapter? You're a legend @stephsmithio

Just finished reading "Doing Content Right" by @stephsmithio. My verdict: pure value, from title to the back cover! 👏

What I loved most is that it didn't promise any quick hacks. Content is a long game, but it's the best way to stand out online 👇


Read "Doing Content Right" by @stephsmithio this weekend. It's loaded w/ sound advice (SEO is king), current resources, and actionable guidance.

Highly recommended to anyone building newsletter.


From @stephsmithio's Doing Content Right. Incredible nuggets. Feeling understood and tended to on every page!

Finally getting around to digging into @stephsmithio 's Doing Content Right.

So far:

*jam packed with interesting examples, anecdotes, companies, products I've never heard of before
*has worthwhile exercises
*feels like a book that you study, not skim


Bought @stephsmithio book on doing content right. Some very good insights, history and story there! It is very important to think how viral one can go. The Trends writing for black friday sales is an example of this.

“ANYTHING that you’ve spent an above average time learning about can be translated into information that is going to valuable to the average person”

Just started but already loving the insights like this from @stephsmithio in Doing Content Right 🔥

I would say of myself that I read a lot of books.

Some of them were very good, some I didn't like, but none of these books were of as great value as @stephsmithio "Doing Content Right".

You should learn from her and all the experiences she covers in her book.

A thread ⬇️

As a creator, one of the best books I've read this year is @stephsmithio's Standing out in 2020: Doing Content Right.

I feel expanded so much as I read through it while taking notes. It feels like I am seeing things through a fresh lens that feels right and makes sense. I can tell the work you've done, Steph, on the material because it feels comprehensive but not overbearing

Just finished the first chapter of @stephsmithio's new book, Doing Content Right. I will be meditation on the question of "Idea Ikigai".

Thank you steph, it has been amazing from start to finish! great job.

You might consider claim yourself as the author on Goodreads and add cover, details, etc.

It would bring you more exposure and I’d be able to leave you there a 5 ⭐️ review


🤓 Thank you! I'm blown away by how evidence-based, detailed and honest your book is! I also love the illustrations you used 😇! And yes, flying! I was reading and suddenly remembered that it's a moment to treasure being above the clouds in 2020! gumroad.com/l/doing-conten…

Well deserved! Doing Content Right is fantastic.

Standing Out in 2020: Doing Content Right by @stephsmithio is the one thing you must read this holiday.

Doing Content Right by @stephsmithio is packed full of stuff. I’m still chopping away at it. gumroad.com/l/doing-conten…

has a very thorough, full of an insane amount of content for learning how to write online content.

Be careful of buying any of those 10 page ebooks with 50 pt font. This book is the polar opposite of it.

“Information is the new oil that you can create, refine and trade...bringing us full swing into the attention economy.”
@stephsmithio very happy with my purchase and hoping to get the best out of the book for myself and my clients. Thank you very much.

"Don’t write just to “make money”. Write to solve problems." From @stephsmithio's 'Doing Content Right'

In the past 2 days, I helped @stephsmithio sell 61 copies of her amazing book "Doing Content Right."

For the longest time, I had doubts about selling to my audience.

- No authority
- Not niche enough
- Bad audience reaction to sales

Here's why I'm glad I powered through 🧵

Your new book is a great comprehensive reference on acquiring readers for any kind of content. Gave me good perspective on all aspects involved.

The SEO chapter was indeed the best, lots of ideas that I hadn’t heard or thought of before.


Just bought @stephsmithio's E-book Doing "Content Right". I am currently working to start a technical blog related to Quality & CQE prep and this is exactly what I wanted!


Hello! Just found your account, followed you and bought your new ebook.

I absolutely loved the content and wanted to thank you for it, especially the chapter in SEO :)

Wondering why there's no mention of webflow though. Any thoughts on the platform? Thanks!

Kudos to @stephsmithio for an amazing job on Doing Content Right! As a total newbie to blogging, the guide has been a godsend. I devoured it in a few days and now working my way through the exercises and checking out all the helpful resources. Thank you!

Just bought your book "Doing Content Right" today because I wanted to think strategically about my blog. I already made changes to my buildingproductivity.tech blog especially the newsletter sign up page. The book is super well written.

As part of following along with "Doing Content Right" by @stephsmithio I decided to redo my blog and focus on conciseness so here's my first try at it in my latest post on using dependency injection 🤓thetoulbox.com/posts/how-to-u…


killer book, loving it so far!

going through
@stephsmithio's Doing Content Right
@nateliason's Effortless Output in Roam

I’m inspired by the people here creating new products publicly and with transparency.

The best I’ve seen:

@indiehackers - community
@jackbutcher - speed and scale
@aaraalto - creative process
@stephsmithio - doing content right
@brandonthezhang - audience building

Got it! Already a few chapters in :) Great how you’re challenging a few typical content marketing views that I have myself.

What worked for me:
- content strategy tips from @stephsmithio’s ebook Doing Content Right
- keyword research on @ahrefs
- hiring a proofreader on @upwork
- always capture emails

Thank you for such a well written book. Rare for new books to be so packed with quality info, specially on writing online.

You should be proud of it! Thanks to you! 💪🏻

HI steph, Just done with Chapter 2 for tomorrow's call and this was packed with things I had never heard of. I am so grateful to you for creating this book. Thank you for keeping this affordable , such top notch material. I am learning so much.

Inspired by @stephsmithio publishing her e-book, Doing Content Right

A few highlights from her fun e-book live session last night:

- no one wants to "subscribe." Be more aspirational
- indie-creators undervalue SEO
- "do things that don't scale" applies to audience building

One of my favorite gumroad purchases of the year. You will love it Joey.
