Content is still the backbone of modern marketing, but as more and more digital marketers embrace it, it’s becoming harder and harder to stand out from the crowd. The best content marketers are the ones who can beat their competitors by choosing the most relevant topics, creating engaging content and connecting with audiences in the right times and places.

As a content creation and strategy partner to many of the world’s fastest-growing brands, Contentoo has helped our clients in every industry to overcome their content marketing challenges. We’ve built Europe’s largest network of freelance talent and developed a comprehensive package of content creation services to help marketers like you reach your goals.

Whether you’re new to content marketing or interested in optimising your existing content activities, you’ll find all the support you need on the Contentoo platform. Below, we want to introduce our content creation services to give you a clear idea of how we work and how we can help you.

What are content creation services?

You’ve probably heard a lot about the benefits of content marketing. Or maybe you’re an experienced content marketer who’s seen those benefits for yourself.

Because content is such a useful marketing tool for achieving a wide range of business goals, around 97% of companies now use some form of content to reach their customers.

The demand for new, high-quality content is non-stop. In many cases, marketing teams lack the creative skills, industry expertise, SEO knowledge or simply the time and resources to create all the content they need themselves. That’s why around 84% of B2B brands and 55% of B2C brands regularly outsource their content creation to specialised partners like Contentoo.

We offer services that can support your brand with any – or all – aspects of your content creation, from brainstorming ideas, to content strategy services, SEO research, writing, editing, localising and beyond. We offer managed content services and packages that are catered specifically to your brand’s needs.

How can content creation services benefit your business?

In our experience, every brand faces unique challenges when it comes to content marketing. That means everyone has a different reason for working with us on their content creation. Here are some of the main benefits we offer our clients through our content creation services:

1. Improved SEO performance

SEO is a full-time job that many brands cannot afford to do on their own. One of the main benefits of working with a full-service content creation provider like Contentoo is that:

  • We can connect you with specialised SEO strategists who can develop and maintain an effective SEO strategy for you.
  • We work with SEO-experienced content creators, editors and localisers who apply the latest SEO best practices and understand the science of search engine visibility in addition to the art of creating high-quality content.

2. Enhanced brand authority

With support from professional strategists and experienced writers, you’re better equipped to identify relevant topics that appeal to your target audiences. Our expert content creators also help showcase your brand’s thought leadership through original, creative ideas.

3. Increased audience engagement

Professional content creators like the ones in our network are master storytellers. They are experienced in using their words and visual designs to make an emotional impact. This ensures your messages are memorable, because storytelling has been scientifically proven to make information 22 times more memorable than merely reciting facts.

By boosting engagement, our content also helps elevate your brand authority, because engagement drives visibility, which helps establish your brand and grow a loyal audience.

4. Saving time and money

As you are probably well aware: 80% of marketing departments are now faced with understaffing and budget cuts. At the same time, content creation is a non-stop, time-consuming task. That’s why outsourcing is a useful option: it helps you generate the content you need, whenever you need it, without the need to hire expensive full-time staff members.

Plus, unlike your in-house team members, who have lots of different tasks to accomplish every day, freelance content creators devote their full attention to content creation. That means they can give your content the attention it deserves and deliver the quality you need, whenever you need it.

And best of all, we ensure that every freelance content creator we connect you with is fully onboarded to your brand, its content strategy and your team’s workflow.
