1. Animalz Launched a Free Tool to Find Content Decay

Earlier this week, we launched a tool called Revive. It’s a free tool that plugs into your Google Analytics and finds content decay.

Revive will tell exactly which posts are decaying so that you can refresh them and earn that traffic back. You can try it out here.

PS - I finally relaunched my content marketing course, 5 Days to Better Content Marketing. Join 300+ people that have taken and enjoyed it.

PPS - I’m looking to partner with a few great businesses to sponsor this newsletter. It reaches a bunch of smart folks from places like Google, Apple, Spotify, New York Times, Marriott and Harvard. Shoot me an email if you're interested in working together.

PPPS - I'm now an official Ghost partner. I've been using Ghost to run my blog for years and I absolutely love it. If you signup for Ghost with my link I do get a commission, but you get an incredibly powerful and simple way to manage your website. Markdown ftw!
