Can Content Help You Find Love?
Valentine’s Day is over, but love, they say, never dies.
We humans are wired for it. From love doctor columns to Delilah on the radio, relationship and romance content has some of the highest engagement—and staying power—of any genre. Is it any wonder that romance novels beat virtually every other category in sales?
Whether you’re telling love stories or not, the content strategy lessons you’ll learn at next week’s Valentine-themed Content Conversations meetup in New York City will help you improve your writing, publishing, and content marketing game.
Here’s the link to sign up for the meetup group. It’s Wednesday, Feb. 20, and it’s free.
Since summer 2012, Content Conversations — sponsored by Contently and Outbrain — has hosted monthly talks in NYC with guests from BuzzFeed, GE, Forbes, Knock2x, PandoDaily, and more. The goal of each event is to bring smart people together to speak candidly about the future of content on the web, answer questions, and rub shoulders. With more than 600 members in the conversation group, there’s always a packed house.
Meet this month’s guest speakers:
