Kings & Queens of Content
Content is King
Content is key to building a successful website and social media presence, however it can also be the most expensive and complex part of online marketing.
Starting with content strategy and budget planning, Glenn will show you how to source, license, produce, process, publish, syndicate and make the most of your content… or to use the buzz word: Content Marketing. All with the focus of resonating with your audience.
We will explore four key ways of gaining quality content for your website and social media: sourcing free content; producing your own content on a shoestring budget; licensing professional content; and directing professional content producers.
Then we will get technical and Glenn will show you best practice integration of your content into the WordPress framework and social media.
