I started my journey with content marketing about 6 months ago. I’ve recorded about 100 videos with my agency, and I’ve recently been writing 2 blog posts a week. We’re stuck at 1-2 inbound leads a week, which is much more than the 0 we were getting previously. I get these feelings you’re describing. “Is it working?” “What am I doing wrong?” “If I had Ahrefs I could be better at this...”

Stephen King said in “On Writing” you have to pray that the altar of the muse for a long time before she will acknowledge you. I think any craft functions that way.

A craft is learned one grueling, hard-earned lesson at a time. How to identify topics people care about? How to write good hooks? Where to publish it? What is my medium?

It’s like you say. One step at a time.
