CONTENT

Great content attracts, informs, engages, improves brand loyalty, builds consumer trust and most importantly, generates leads. 

The art of building a brand involves enticing consumers through various stages of consideration, having different conversations with them at different moments in time. 

In the age of digital and social media, your brand needs killer content. A clearly defined content strategy identifies your content marketing objectives, explores who your buyer really is and discovers what makes them tick. 

The positioning of your content, the type of content, and how it speaks to your customer is what leads to sales. Your content should matter, it should connect, it should influence.

Here are just some of the ways I can help produce content for your brand that will make a positive difference to your business and create an uplift in engagement and sales....

BLOGS

Blogging can help drive more traffic to your site, and with the right call to actions, convert that traffic into leads, driving long-term results for your business. It can show off your expertise and thought-leadership in specific areas too and helps to identify and align your brand with like-minded customers. One of the most under-rated effects of blogging is providing fresh, relevant content on your website which Google really values, helping to elevate your rankings for targeted keywords.

SOCIAL MEDIA 

There are so many ways of creating impactful content for your social media platforms. You need content that's good enough to get shared, not just 'liked' to convert a casual onlooker into a customer. Think: podcasts, user-generated content, memes, gifs, live streams, webinars, ebooks, the possibilities are endless! Then, you can use this great content to spread your brand message via targeted social media campaigns. 


COPYWRITING

Well-crafted language with the right tone-of-voice, aimed at the right audience is the key to killer content. Add to that, search engine-friendly copy and you can help secure a regular flow of traffic to your website.

VISUAL CONTENT

Your customers are human, and human-beings crave visuals stimulation – 90% of information that comes to the brain is visual. To effectively attract and engage  customers, your brand's visual content needs to play a pivotal role in your content marketing strategy – it can set you apart, cut through the online noise and communicate and compliment your brand message.
