Paleo SEO – Foundational Human Needs Driving Your Content Strategy

Starting with Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, we’ll explore how content strategy & tactics need to align with the foundational aspects of human needs expressed in search queries and online behavior.

Follow caveman Ugg as he navigates paleo-challenges to satisfaction, then apply the core elements of content (uniqueness & value), safety (trust & https), social need (sharing & sharability), ego bait and esteem (authoritative connections & links), and finally the pinnacle of paleo SEO – self-actualization of success… the metrics that matter to become chief of the tribe.

Takeaways include how to:

  • Leverage human needs for content success
  • Ideate and identify key queries to target
  • Create content that satisfies users
  • Focus on metrics that matter for reporting

Join Grant to learn to ROCK the human factor and help your content strategy!
