I help businesses manage the process of content production

Produce more consistently relevant & authoritative content

Services

The businesses I work with typically have a marketing manager in place.  They are already working to a marketing plan but struggling to get traction with regular content production.  In my experience this is usually down to one or more of the following:

  • No clear content strategy
  • A pipeline of content of no more than a month, or so
  • Limited (if any) engagement from the rest of the business
  • Lack of formalised processes for content creation

The most well-informed content comes from the people on the front line, the doers in your business and not the marketing manager.  It’s your marketing team’s job to extract the expert information from within the business and turn it into content to be used in your marketing.  I can help your team to become more efficient at extracting thought leadership.

“Rachel has provided the structure, and given the clarity, to enable us to deliver professional and meaningful content.  Her clarity of vision, insight from experience and forward-thinking methodology has been a game-changer for Borg & Overström’s social media presence and article writing.  I would highly recommend Rachel’s input as an added dimension to your existing marketing department.”  

(Richard Dunham, Marketing Director Borg & Overström)

Approach

Most of the work I do is bespoke, however I usually guide businesses through the following stages.

  1. Background research and content strategy:  Includes authority benchmark, content audit, keyword research, content strategy hypothesis.
  2. Ideas workshop:  A workshop with up to 10 people from across the business to generate ideas for content.
  3. Training for marketing manager:  Address specific areas where the marketing manager needs support or advice such as editing processes and methods for extracting content.
  4. Coaching & writing support:  One day per month coaching for the marketing manager for as long as needed.

I also provide training or workshop sessions for businesses to address specific problems or challenges in their content marketing.
