Content Creation Services

Content Briefs

A hybrid approach to crafting comprehensive content with ease.

Custom SEO-powered ‘Google approved’ outlines for your articles delivered right to your inbox every month.

It’s like a super nerdy version of Mad Libs where you fill in the blanks of the outline and pay attention to the SEO guides & prompts.

Let's Get Right To The Point

If you want your blog posts and articles to start speaking with Google about getting on page one, then you need to use the latest SEO tools and optimize the entire piece – from H1 to your CTA. 

Because, when it comes to your content ranking, it’s not just about your great ideas. It’s about how you’re structuring that idea to say to Google, ‘I AM NUMBER ONE!’

Tell me if this is you:

You’re A Finance or Real Estate Brand, but you just feel like:

  • You don’t have a solid foundation to catapult from when it comes to writing your posts
  • You’re wasting your time writing since no one sees the post 
  • You don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars a month on premium SEO tools like Ahrefs, SurferSEO, and Frase to get that perfectly SEO optimized content published
  • You are treading water with all the latest SEO best practices

We see you.

That is why we made Content Briefs, for those who:

  • Have an idea of what the topics should be but want a template as a solid framework for implementing SEO
  • Want to feel confident writing their content with an optimized structure and everything they need to dive right in
  • Are ready to utilize what the premium SEO tools have to offer without the subscription
  • Yearn for their ideas to finally be bringing in traffic and leads

You might be wondering

How The Content Briefs Work

We’ll walk you through the gist of it, and if you have any further questions tap that contact page link in our menu and we will get right back to you

Step 1:

The Analysis

After we sign a contract and onboard your company, you’ll receive a form to fill out so we can learn more about the nitty gritty of your business and content goals. You’ll also receive a second form to let us know which keywords you’d like to create content briefs for that month. It is important that we see right where your content sits in order to optimize your next batch of articles for Google. 

Step 2:

The Execution

Once we have our direction, we can begin to complete SEO research, competitive analysis,  and assemble complete outlines from H1 to your meta description. The execution phase is where all the SEO juices start to flow and your content gains the power to become visible.

Step 3:

The Deliverables

We truly believe that your success is our success. You’ll receive an email with a link to your content brief as each one becomes available. Upon delivery, we want to ensure you and/or your team of writers understand exactly how to use the provided briefs which is why we record a video tutorial and a robust roadmap of  SEO best practices.

If the idea of your content strategized, optimized, and delivered to you with the confidence that it's ready to be seen by Google has you even a little excited, let’s talk a bit more.

Would you rather have us do it for you?
