There are millions of Content Marketing Experts out there willing to consult with you in exchange for a drink from your wallet...I've made fun of them before. They'll tell you how important SEO is, implore you to publish to Facebook multiple times a day, explain how brands really have to start Telling Their Story. Incredibly valuable information, if you've been in a coma for the last ten years.
Theory is easy. Very few self-described "content experts" can distinguish between great and merely good content. Even fewer have ever borne responsibility for creating and deploying content for major brands. Fewer still have succeeded at it: built award-winning teams, produced daily and weekly content across all channels (on time and under budget), created sustainable, readdressable audiences.
Unlike these entertaining chatterboxes, we're here to get the job done. The team we assemble for you will be as small as it can be, and composed solely of people who have worked their asses off, who have succeeded, and who can prove it. Breathtakingly great writers, editors, designers, illustrators, video producers, storyboard artists, technical wizards—you name it. Fast and reliable experts who know how to raise your search profile, or lower your SEM cost per acquisition, or create client-thrilling presentations, or map out and obtain productive partnerships, or produce events that make the press drool. We have worked with the best for over 20 years and can assemble just the right team to meet your objectives.
Some ways we can engage:
We can think on your behalf.
Know what you need to get done, but not exactly how to get there? We can come in on an hourly or day rate, assess the situation, construct the plan, and help you hire/retain your dream team. We can let you know what you should pay, how long you'll need them, and what to expect from the metrics.
We can work on your projects.
Got an important initiative that needs a champion, and not enough time to hire up AND get it done? We can hit the ground running to take on a creative enterprise of any size, and manage it through to completion. Launch a family of websites, build an email/eCRM program from scratch, deploy a ten-city event tour, create a few elaborate, killer sales-team videos or an endless stream of short social media videos at a drastically lower price point. Challenge us.
We can be responsible for success.
Have a company to run, and don't really want to be in the messy business of content production? We can stay involved and own the success of an enterprise over the long haul through a retainer relationship and agreed upon metrics, until the moment you decide you're ready to take it in-house.
If you want to talk theories of the brave new world of content marketing, I'm happy to refer you to someone who makes that their business. There are lots of them. But if instead you're impatient to build a real audience, by publishing content your targets will genuinely love and share and that serves your business objectives, produced in an efficient, effective, and sustainable way—in other words, if you're ready to go—well, that's what we do. We'll stay as long as needed, then go away peacefully. :)
When you're ready to run, give us a shout.
