@Erin Feldman Well, it depends on your publishing schedule :)

@Laura Petrolino Hi Laura, yours is a good way to work in my opinion:  when you write the core of a piece of content, usually you use all your ideas, which you need to restore before adding something else; therefore it's better to edit and add something in the days after.

@Erin Feldman Hi Erin, your work process is ok. In fact, my 30 days post is an exception in my content strategy, not the rule.

@allenmirelesWell, my first intention was to make it in a week, but it has been harder that I thought :) The core idea is to make something huge and remarkable (which, of course, takes time), either it needs 30 days or 3 days to make it. My pleasure, Allen!

@adammbsmith Hi Adam, good question! I didn't have a big following, and this is probably the most interesting part of the entire post: the post "promoted itself"! 

When you have the contribute of 101 influencers, you don't have to promote your content, you just have to say to those people "Ehi, your answer is live on this page". 

Not everyone will promote you, but with 101 influencers on your side you can be sure that the result is great!

@rdopping In most of the cases it goes in this way, but pay attention that sometimes your efforts may be wasted. In some cases you may waste your energy for an ineffective task, or you may risk to do something good in the right way. It's always important to plan before you spend  a huge amount of resources - even though in some cases a plan can't predict the reality.

@Hajra Hi Hajra, I have to share a secret with you: I almost freaked out...it was a pretty hard task. 


Indeed, it's really worth it.

@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes Hi Josha, I guess that all the backlinks and social shares that the post got are pretty good :)

What about the comments? I haven't ever had a contact with 95% of the people that commented on that post. The fact that they are commenting is a way to say "Mauro, I may want to connect with you in the future". 

Do those things sound like a good result for the time spent?

@LauraPetrolinoHi Laura, it's my favourite too :)


You're totally right: spending time to help people is the best investment you can ever make. 

Recently I published a post about marketing quotes and there was this one from Zig Ziglar that is awesome: "You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.".
