Finding the kind of content that resonates with your audience takes a lot of trial and error.

…and isn’t necessarily intuitive.

So when Fred Perrotta, Co-founder & CEO of Tortuga Backpacks, a brand geared toward millennial travelers, started a blog for the brand, he wasn’t sure exactly what he should be writing about.

So he just started to try a bunch of things.

And eventually struck gold with a topic he never would have expected: packing guides for specific destinations.

And if you take one look at their blog, you’ll see a ton of examples. Packing guides for Mexico, Morocco, Portland, if you’re going, they probably have a list for you.

So we asked Fred to share some of his content secrets to help you get to that first million and beyond.
