Crafting the Experience You Wish To See in the World
This is a very special episode of Content Pros because we’re joined by Randy’s co-founder of Uberflip: Yoav Schwartz.
Yoav’s background is in product marketing, and he started and managed a number of marketing businesses before joining forces with Randy to found Uberflip.
One of the most important reasons Uberflip exists is to help solve a huge perception problem when it comes to content marketing. Yes, content is a major part of marketing as a whole, but the pillars within content marketing are vast and complex. There’s no one tool or platform that can address them all.
Another problem with content, as seen in this week’s stat, is that marketers have a really hard time determining whether their efforts are worthwhile. Who is seeing your content? Are the right audiences engaging? What does engagement really look like? And do those metrics make the creation of that content worth it?
Yoav’s determination to answer these questions and change the world through great content experiences is infectious. Tune in to hear all about what makes a fantastic content experience, the best ways to distribute your content, and tweet Yoav @yostar for a special discount code to the Uberflip Experience in Toronto, just for Content Pros listeners.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Yoav wanted to be Superman, as many young boys do! But as he got a little older, he knew he wanted to be involved in or running a great software company that could change the world. Today, he can safely say that he’s on my way to realizing that dream. How inspiring!
