I get a major case of the warm and fuzzies when a client hands us the reigns and lets us create all kinds of cool content for their blog.

About a month ago, a potential client reached out to the Impressa Solutions team because he needed some blog posts. To be frank, blog posts alone were not going to get this guy to his stated goals. He needed a content strategy, but when I told him this, I was met with resistance.
