ABOUT US

Benefit from Bespoke Content

  

Be Content is a new content production company founded in 2014 that focuses solely on creating high quality content, be it written (articles, interviews, blog posts, press releases, case studies) or visual (infographics, videos, photography, display network banner adverts) for businesses.

There’s certainly no shortage of content services available to help you produce content for your business. But not just any content provider will do. You’ll find that some content providers are extremely low cost, and this is because they’re providing content that is typically low quality and churned out overseas. Here at Be Content, we are a professional content provider that understands the unique content objectives and needs of clients. As such, we provide the high quality, timely, and engaging content that your audience demands. We only use qualified, experienced and established professionals to create content, and we are proud to work with some of the best creative freelancer writers, designers, photographers and filmers in the country.

The content we create is a mixture of in-house production and outsourcing to a large network of brilliant and successful professional freelancers that we work closely with. With our quality control procedures, we strive to ensure that all content we create is of the highest standard and tailored to your business.

THE BE CONTENT TEAM

We are Mark, Tom and Will and we’re the founders of Be Content.

We became colleagues and friends back in 2007 when we worked together at a well-known digital marketing agency. Little did we know that fast forward three years later and each one of us would be working as freelance consultants, and that our paths would cross again. In 2009, Tom and Will joined forces to setup a digital marketing agency that Mark joined as part-time consultant in 2012.

Fast forward to mid 2012, fresh off the back of Google panda and penguin updates, the importance of quality content and targeted content marketing was now big news in the online world. Content had always been the backbone to our SEO campaigns over the years and we’ve witnessed firsthand how great content delivers fantastic results. So much so, in fact, that the increased demand for high quality content from clients meant finding the resources to produce this content was becoming few and far between.

Winter of 2013 we decided to take matters into our own hands and use our blend of skills and experience between us to start a new content production company called Be Content.

Our Content Services

Content, in its many forms, is essential for creating value and trust around your brand.

Given the right craftsmanship, content has the ability to increase your visibility online, reach the right people, and lead to those much-sought conversions. Understandably, getting the right content created isn’t everybody’s strong point, and a busy schedule can result in slow content campaigns, regardless of how much you stand to gain in the process. This is where we come in. We’re here to create the right content for your business.

 

BLOG CONTENT

Google tell us that “A blog is a great way to connect with people, or to publicise your site or product. Rich, useful, and original blog content will encourage readers to come back to your site.” But writing blog content takes time and skill to craft and that’s where we can help. Whatever your niche and whoever your customers are, we can create blog content that engages and resonates with them. With our strong SEO background, rest assured that your content will be search engine friendly too.

PRESS RELEASES

Tell the world about your latest news. It could be for the launch of your new website, or maybe you’ve cycled the length of Britain in a pair of Speedos for charity. A well-crafted press release can make all the difference. Our writers will work with you to make sure every important detail is included, the correct tone of voice is used and appeals to your audiences. 

INFOGRAPHICS

Well-designed infographics are a creative way for any business to engage with audiences via visual content. Content with visuals receive 94% more page visits and engagement than those without. We work with a host of talented infographic designers with impressive experience when it comes to creating infographics, no matter how simple or complex.

VIDEO

Video content is now one of the most effective online marketing tools available. By 2017, video will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic, according to Cisco. Video production costs have fallen significantly in recent years making video affordable to everyone. We work with freelance video specialists to create popular animated videos and corporate videos.

CONTENT PLANNING

9 times out of 10, content will fail if there’s no strategic plan in place. Each piece of content needs to have specific objectives in mind before being created. You may wish to increase your social following with a shareable piece of content or help your customers decide what product or service to go for, and hence have the purpose of conversion. We make sure the content we produce delivers these objectives..

WEBSITE COPY

Quality content will bring people to your website. Now you need to convert these visits into sales, signups etc. Content plays an important part in this process, to persuade and to engage with visitors. This demands great writing skills but just as important, the content needs to be search engine friendly. Our content ticks these boxes by using talented freelance writers and in-house SEO agency expertise. 

INTERVIEWS

One of the most successful forms of content in terms of readership is insightful content. Interviews are a superb way of answering questions that readers or potential customers want to know more about. Interviews by their very nature can be emotional pieces that engage with audiences in a simple but effective way. 

WHITE PAPERS / CASE STUDIES

Nothing else comes close to making a statement of authority than a white paper or case study. If you need someone to devote time to researching and writing a white paper or case study then we’ve a host of talented writers that can deliver an impressive well-informed and structured piece for you.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Capture the essence of your brand with great imagery. When used within content marketing, research shows that 94% more total views on average are attracted by content containing compelling images than content without images. We work with fantastic freelance photographers to capture the right images for you.

The Be Content team have been extremely helpful with creating our content and advising on how to effectively distribute it. This has helped increase our online reach and authority and has helped to significantly improve our conversion levels.

Social sharing was the main objective of this piece of content and it succeeded bringing it several thousand visits to their website.
