Why content shouldn’t be overlooked.
The importance of great content creation
Great content creation is key to visually enhancing your website, making your advertising more vivid, and sharing your story through social media. These are all things that Crate47 can take care of for you. Content is everything on your website that helps the audience engage with it. We’ve all heard the saying ‘content is king’ however the written word alone cannot bring a project to life. It is crucial to implement imagery that will hold your audience’s attention, reinforce your visual identity and promote your brand. We work hard to make sure that your website will differentiate you from the rest.
Type of content you should use:
Applying content to a website needs research conducted and target markets chosen. It’s the same as building businesses. It’s vital to conduct market research to assure you are targeting the right customers and the same goes for content. Defining your customer and the kinds of people who will be using your website will give you a clearer idea of the tone you should be using for your demographic.
Once the tone is established, you will need to study your target market to determine the best way for them to absorb content. For example, clients who are looking for short term deliverables will most likely be interested in infographics or specific content. However, if you are building a long-term relationship, clients may want more detailed content such as reports. This all depends on the client so be concise when researching which content will work best.
We at Crate47 have our in-house content marketing team who can manage our client’s social media accounts. This makes it easier for them as we research into a client’s audience, allowing for consistency through social media platforms as well as saving our clients costs by not having to employ their own content department.

- Perhaps the most important thing is that content is a great opportunity for you to engage with your client. It’s arguably one of the most important aspects but can be the most difficult to achieve.
