006. Chris Garrett (Copyblogger) On How To Use Content Marketing To Win Online (Including A Simple 5-Day Plan To Get You Started In A Week!)

Content Marketing With Chris Garrett From Copyblogger – How To Use Content Marketing For Business Success

Chris Garrett is one of the most prolific content marketers out there, and that is . Chris has a long history with CopyBlogger and has mentored some of the biggest bloggers in the world including John Morrow who I featured earlier on in this podcast series.

Content marketing is constantly evolving and there are several ways in which to do this. 

He’s also worked closely with Darren Rowse, and in one of the CopyBlogger authority webinars, I remember him being described by Sonya Simone as someone who’s one of the founders of CopyBlogger as one of the hardest-working people she knows. Chris was born in Canada. He grew up in the UK, and now he lives in Alberta, Canada where he teaches content marketing at a University.
