Hard Decisions Require Empathy

Mark Suster

This is a stressful time for everyone, including entrepreneurs who have to find (often hard) answers to questions about cutting expenses, staff, raising new funds, and more. Mark Suster argues that empathy is a core skill that can get you (and those around you) through this challenging time.

"[T]oday I want to avoid tactical advice and offer something more about your temperament as you wade through complexity and deal with decisions that affect the lives and the livelihoods of others."

Content Hubs for SEO: How to Get More Traffic and Links With Topic Clusters

Joshua Hardwick, Ahrefs

Content hubs (or "Hub-and-spoke" strategy) have been steady on the rise in SEO for the last few years. They work pretty well and can help you rank on Google for highly competitive topics. Use this to learn how to implement this in your SEO strategy.

"Content hubs are interlinked collections of content about a similar topic. They consist of three parts:

1. Hub page/pillar content: This is a high-level guide about a broad topic.
2. Subpages/cluster content: These are in-depth guides about parts of the main topic.
3. Hyperlinks: These connect the hub page and subpages. The hub page links to all the subpages, and each subpage links back to the hub."

"Building an effective (and committed) enterprise sales team for the long haul starts with the people you hire. This is a great time to reflect and strategize so you can hire the very best people for your business when the time is right."
