Authentic Storytelling with Christoph Trappe

Christoph Trappe is a content marketer who has spoken worldwide on the topic. What he wants you to think about is being “authentic” to communicate your organization’s mission. In our conversation on Get Social Health we discuss the importance of building your brand with smart, consistent content (that does not have to be exclusively yours). Christoph offers some excellent advice on the timing and longevity of posts plus how to re-purpose blog content to give posts more exposure. We also discussed the launch of his new book, “Get Real: Telling Authentic Stories for Long-Term Success.” Listen to our conversation or drop in at the time-stamps below.
