Here’s a quick summary:

1. News, time sensitive content is the opposite of evergreen content

2. Evergreen content lasts a long time, and can actually attract more views in the long run

3. Edit your posts to keep them fresh and help them evolve over time

4. Find topics by looking for questions that aren’t already answered online

5. An initial heavy investment of time can be priceless

6. Ask yourself, “was this information useful last year, this year, and next year?” If the answer is yes, you have a piece of evergreen content

Awesome tools we mentioned:

1. We didn’t mention any tools in this episode, but we will say that it’s important to keep a log of articles that you WANT to write in the future. As you’re searching online and find topics about your product or service that aren’t answered, make a list somewhere. We use Trello and Evernote.

Other items we discussed:
