Infographic — How to Create Content 10x Better Than Competitors

Content marketing is competitive. And if you want your content to appear on the first page of search engines and earn hundreds of social shares, it needs to be better than the competition. But what is the best strategy for getting your content out there?

Some believe backlinking should be the answer to improving your site. However, there are plenty that would disagree. Indeed, backlinking will most likely get higher rankings in the short run, but it’s creating better content that will always win in the long term. When your content is better than the competition, you’ll earn more links than you could manipulate manually.
