We teach Alberta-based business owners and their in-house marketing teams how to develop and execute branded content Marketing Strategies for Facebook, Instagram, Websites and Google.
We consistently hear the same problems from business owners and marketing managers. Their brand is in disarray, they are not properly established on the web, social media, and search engine platforms, it’s a struggle to manage in-house content creation, and—crucially—they lack knowledge and experience to tie together all the elements of a branded Content Marketing Strategy with in-house resources.
In today’s more limited world, especially in light of COVID-19 restrictions, more businesses are turning to in-house brand and marketing management. Training for consistency in branding along with skills development in digital content marketing allows for organizations to effectively and efficiently manage a professional website, SEO, and social media presence.
