Content Creation: Engage and Inform Your Audience for $500 a Month

As part of your digital marketing strategy, you must create some type of content weekly. I always tell my clients to pick whichever format works best for them and that their audience will enjoy. Several clients enjoy being in front of the camera—it’s videos for them! Others love to talk, so their weekly content is a podcast. And other clients love to write, so for them, it’s a weekly blog. 

Whatever format you choose is fine if you are committed to regularly creating that content. Our digital marketing team can help you map your editorial calendar with topics and keywords that will appeal to your audience. 

Then, we can use one of our virtual assistants to help you create and market your weekly content. Several clients hire us for $500 monthly to help create their weekly content.
