Digital Content… It’s how people find you

Post on Facebook, twitter or any other published website/platform? You’ve created digital content. Whether it’s just a word, sentence or paragraph, or a photo or video of any sort, it’s available for consumption by your followers and friends.

Is the information sent in an email, e-newsletter or multi-media/text message content that should also be used on the website, or vice versa? The answer? It depends on the audience. With everyone creating content, it’s important to have a solid business strategy with a focus on digital efforts.

When creating content, ask yourself “What’s the Goal?” Create for the purpose.  When content is created for the purpose, success rates to reach your objective are substantially higher.
