Finding out what people are looking for, what issues they need to solve, and creating content to help them accordingly. If you’re in marketing, you know all about this process. You probably also use a lot of tools that help you with that. Ahrefs might – and should – be one of them. 

But it’s not the tool you’ll learn about from our upcoming episode of Incoming Chat. It’s everything that contributed to Ahref’s spectacular growth and made it the top industry brand it is today. 

Ahrefs is a perfect example of a brand that knows how to use consistency, the right strategy, and thoughtful marketing to build a huge audience. How big exactly? 1.1M monthly organic traffic and still growing. Not bad for a business that started as a bet with a friend. They have tons of fans of their tool, and on top of that, they built a successful YouTube channel with more than 200k subscribers. They have it all. And Ahref’s CMO, Tim Soulo, was kind enough to share a slice of his knowledge on our podcast. 

Incoming Chat with Tim Soulo: All things related to marketing

In the upcoming episode of Incoming Chat, coming up this Thursday (Mar. 4), Marcos and Tim will discuss:

Back in 2015, when I started, we had a product quality that was 5 out of 5. And marketing that was 2 out of 5 or even 1 out of 5. Customers were recommending a product and it was selling itself, but the marketing wasn’t there. It was my assignment to change that and do marketing that is 5 out of 5.

Don’t be afraid to be authentic. Some people will be judgmental, but if it’s you, it makes things easier. Don’t pretend to be someone else. You will attract people.

Usually, it should be a founder. People like to follow people rather than brands. Elon Musk is the best perfect example, how almost the entire marketing of a company can be handled by just one person.

Even I struggle in some ways when I represent Ahrefs. For example, I can’t necessarily speak for Dmitri (CEO) when answering some questions, so it’s hard for me to take the toll. But it still works for us.

A lot of our videos that are keyword specific and target specific queries on YT are generating a consistent amount of views and new subscribers. It’s important to cover topics that are evergreen – that people are searching for them consistently and be there for them.

He shares a nice story of how he prepared a blogging course and how he stood out from the competition, even though the course was available for free. 

This brings us to the last but crucial case.
