    I'd like to write an informative article about the 5 to 10 biggest content marketing problems of BHW users. I'll also write 1 or 2 actionable solutions for each problem.

    I know I could have just searched "biggest content marketing problems" on Google but I'd like to feature my fellow BHW members in this article.

    Please comment below with your most challenging content marketing concern.

    Thank you for your active participation!

    I would say limited time frame and trying to fit in keywords.

    Thank you for your comment, @RotatingProxies. Your situation is the common problem of many. You're not alone. :)
    Anyhow, have you considered hiring a ghostwriter?

    Hi, @dreamworthsol. You got the same situation as @RotatingProxies. With regard to keyword density, how many keywords do you have per article?
    Do you have one or more main keywords and several secondary keywords (long-tailed keywords)?
    What is the keyword density do you apply (1%, 2%, 3%, etc)?

    Because it's spammy advertising and it's outside of the marketplace.

    Trying to sell without coming across as spammy.

    Hi, @Vespasanius. I suggest you identify your audience's interest first. If you have a Facebook page with followers, ask them what topics they would like you to write or post about. Then, you write about the frequently requested topic.

    Hi, @octavio corizif. Outsource what you cannot do.

    Hi, @oblivion19. Focus on writing informative content. Let your call-to-action (CTA) statement at the bottom of your article do the soft-selling. Don't be pushy, however.

    Writing content that is appealing. If you try to be informative, it becomes a dull article "Content writing guide" and if you try to hold interest, it becomes all fluff and no substance like "7 top tips for writing content"

    I think the issue is not on the content, per se, but on the word choice part to write an eye-catchy title.

    1) Coming up with a great headline fast - usually hours goes into coming up with a good headline
    2) How do you actually promote a well written article apart from just submitting it to community sites like Reddit and doing some FB ads
    3) How to draw engagement from readers in the form of comments
    4) Any way to invoke readers to share the content
    5) Best ways to get them to sign up to your mailing list after having read the content

    My main problem is producing enough content on a consistent basis.

    I like your inputs, @theproblemo. They are good starting points.

    Hi, @Silverandblack. Do you consider hiring a writer?
