Episode 68 kicks off Season 1 of The Mindful Marketer podcast, where we explore content strategy in 2023.
Why should this topic matter to you?ChatGPT, tougher privacy rules, and a growing demand for differentiation can decimate well intended thought leadership and content strategies.
Furthermore, Layoffs.fyi just reported that the number of tech layoffs grew 10x between 2021-2022. That means you will find fewer job opportunities than in 2021. To thrive, you need to be a thought leader in your market to stand out.
Seasoned editor and marketer, Ginger Conlon, joined me for this lively show. Here’s what you will hear:
Ginger is the thought leadership Director at Genesys, a 6000-person cloud-based customer support tech company. She’s also the co-host of the "Tech Talks in 20" podcast. Like me, she is also a fitness fanatic who loves creating valuable audience content.

Content marketing leaders to watch
Handy quote from Scott Galloway’s January Prof G podcast: “TikTok is the ultimate propaganda tool…two-thirds of all millennials would turn off ALL cable and social media in favor of TikTok.” Their parent, Byte Dance, is on the path to a $1T valuation.
