What Types of Marketing Content Does Brafton Deliver?
Brafton is a full-service content marketing agency, which means our content creation capabilities are virtually limitless. We work side-by-side with your content marketing team to determine which assets you need and the best strategy to distribute them.
Our in-house staff includes expert writers, SEO enthusiasts, graphic designers, videographers, animators, social media strategists, content marketing experts and more. Together, we’re a powerhouse of marketing professionals who are adept at their craft and experienced in creating high quality content for a wide range of industries and clients around the globe.
Here is a look at some of our most popular content creation services:
Blog Content Creation
As top-of-sales-funnel content, blog posts increase brand awareness and drive website traffic with relevant content that emphasises visual storytelling. Industry-focused writers craft every piece of blog content in conjunction with content marketing strategists and project managers. Blogs are an excellent way to increase your online presence by driving organic traffic to your site. All blog content created is based on a clear editorial calendar shared with you.
Combining your guidance and our search engine optimisation expertise, our writers and content marketers carry out keyword research and map out each blog post to ensure topics, titles, keywords and formatting engage your target audience, support your digital content marketing strategy and serve your commercial goals. It is our mission to create valuable and engaging content for visitors, whilst following SEO content writing best practices. Once content has been created, edited, approved and posted, our strategists analyse content performance. These metrics inform future blog posts and other types of content and allow your content creation team to maximise the value of its inbound marketing efforts for your business.
eBooks & White Papers
Brafton eBooks and white papers underpin an effective content marketing strategy. These middle- and bottom-of-funnel content marketing assets can be gated to capture potential customer contact information. eBooks are truly a hybrid of infographics and white papers, marrying bite-sized chunks of actionable information with compelling content and eye-catching custom graphics. They are ideal for grabbing and holding audience attention.
White papers take a more in-depth approach, featuring thoroughly researched copy that dives deep into subjects with commentary and analysis. While more text-focused than an eBook, a white paper is also formatted for visual appeal with brand logos, colours and imagery in the header, footer and margins.
Infographics & Asset Design
Brafton infographics transform data into engaging digital storytelling. Creating a compelling, brand-centric narrative in conjunction with content writers, marketing strategists and project managers, graphic designers use 2D imagery, characters, illustrations and stylised icons to break down complex topics into easy-to-understand visual content.
Brafton’s infographics come in a variety of sizes and are effective when embedded in blog posts in their full size, published in resource centres, and used in marketing automation. In addition to infographics, Brafton provides a wide range of asset design services, including custom illustrations for blog and social media posts and clickable call-to-action buttons to help drive conversions for your marketing campaign.
Video Content Production
Brafton’s in-house team of video experts create content that runs the gamut from in-studio video blogs to how-to guides to animated explainer videos to man-on-the-street interviews. A well-executed video can play a critical role in any content marketing strategy. Whether used as top-of-funnel content to generate audience interest or bottom-of-funnel testimonials designed to provide social proof to potential customers and close deals, we create each video product in accordance with brand goals, guidelines and preferences and hand-crafted to maximise marketing efforts in a minimal amount of time.
Videos can be filmed on location, including for corporate promotional purposes and event coverage. Live-action and illustrated options are available for multiple products, including the use of trained actors and voice-over artists.
Case Studies & Website Content
Clearly outlining the benefits of products and services, Brafton case studies provide proof of client capabilities using real-world examples. Data-focused success stories highlight brand potential through customer testimonials, employee interviews and information analysis. As with eBooks and white papers, case studies are formatted to maximise visual appeal among middle-of-funnel prospects.
Your Brafton marketing team can also provide detailed website copy that incorporates SEO best practices along with in-depth exploration of unique products, services and value propositions. Landing page copy and design are crafted to generate leads and drive conversions for bottom-of-funnel website visitors ready to reach out and take the next step.
Full-Service Email Marketing
Utilising data-driven expertise and promotional best practices, our content marketers create newsletters that engage and build your email list. Writers also craft press releases and promotional emails to share information regarding brand updates, events and campaigns across distribution lists using email templates that include custom illustrations and CTAs.
Email copy can also be distributed and managed across all major email service providers and marketing automation tools according to your desired distribution campaign. From brand awareness to thought leadership to lead generation, newsletter and other email content is designed from the ground up to serve your digital marketing needs and reach your target audience at every stage of the sales funnel.
Content Marketing Strategy & Consulting
Content is only as valuable as the planning behind it. Brafton is a full-service content marketing agency that specialises in strategy, consultancy and promotion. Our content marketing service options engage audiences and support commercial goals across all channels for successful digital marketing.
Work with a dedicated Content Marketing Strategist who will evaluate your existing content and strategy, then make educated recommendations for your team. Your CMS will work with your Brafton content marketing team as well as your in-house experts to establish a content plan, strategy and goals. Then, they’ll ensure every deliverable is on-brand and serves specific marketing and business goals.
A solid SEO strategy is essential for the success of your digital marketing programme. Your website must be set up correctly for web crawlers to understand its purpose. Our consultants will evaluate your current website to find errors that could be holding you back from digital marketing success. They can also deliver a report containing specifics of each error, and can update your website to eliminate those issues.
Organic content alone can’t support a content marketing programme in its entirety. Pay-per-click advertising is an important component of most digital marketing strategies. Our expert PPC consultants know how to tailor paid ad campaigns to your specific business goals. Our team creates ads for paid search campaigns, display ads, paid social media promotions and more.
Email marketing is so much more than sending out emails. It requires familiarity with email marketing platforms, a keen understanding of your audience, the creation of email lists including lead generation campaigns, and more. Our consultants are here to help you at any — or every — stage along the way.
To establish the right topics, tone and direction for your great content, you need to understand your audience. Our consultants will work with your team to create highly researched, in-depth buyer personas to help guide content creation efforts. Each buyer persona will be polished and professional, laying out each detail that marketers and content creators need to keep in mind while crafting your campaigns.
