Content is not king. Forget what you’ve learned. Content shared in the right communities can reach “king” status if you know where to post it and how to connect with fellow community members. Optimizing your content comes down to creating magnetic headlines for your content, which vibe with a carefully-selected, targeted audience, and building relationships with community members.
