Starting in content marketing can be confusing.
It took me nine months to find my voice. And I still get that random “what did you mean here?” comment from my editor. Bertha-Bella and I started Not Enough Writers to give beginner African content marketers a safe space to find their feet in content marketing.
And while that’s been amazing. I have probably gotten over 100 emails in the past year asking me the same question, “Dozie, how do I start out in content marketing?”
I hope the Content Marketing AltMBA answers that question for any beginner content marketer and writer.
This ebook is a curation of evergreen lessons from industry leaders on the following topics:
- Content strategy
- Content writing
- Customer research
- Product-led storytelling
Keyede Erinfolami, a freelance SEO writer, puts it best, “You know how they say it takes a village to raise a kid? Well, hi kid. Here’s your village. The Content Marketing AltMBA is chock-full of useful insights, tips, tricks from renowned industry folk who have walked their talk. If you’re a newbie content marketer who doesn’t want to waste time on trial and error, the Content Marketing AltMBA is for you.”

Here’s Bertha-Bella Agoha, my co-founder at Not Enough Writers on the Content Marketing AltMBA:
“You’re probably thinking that this isn’t for you because you are a total newbie at content marketing. Nope! This is perfect for everyone. Including beginners who need an uncomplicated step-by-step guide. What I loved most about the ebook was how organized and progressive it was. It made my ‘content marketing’ life easier. And sometimes I catch myself going back to it like a handbook.”
