CONTENT AUDIT
At the cornerstone of sound content marketing is a comprehensive content audit – we will locate and collect your content assets. Our team will perform a qualitative analysis of your digital content that will uncover the gaps that currently exist in your storyline. We fix what is broken and will not try to recreate the wheel. We help create and manage your content through the entire content life cycle by delivering creative content at the right time to the right audience in the right voice.
● We create a content inventory by collecting and recording all of your existing content in a database. We use this data, not only as a point of reference, but as a way to compile your assets and build on them.
● We start chiseling and refining your existing content to make it fresh and reassess the authenticity and truthfulness of it vis-à-vis the current state of your business.
● We ask important questions like is the pitch of your content being expressed in the right tone. We make sure that it is.
● We look at the navigational structure of your content to see if it is correctly organized. We find the missing pieces and bring your fragmented content together and make it whole.
● We cut out the content repetition and redundancies and keep the user engaged by providing new value-added information.
● We make sure that your content is search engine-ready by ensuring that the titling, coding and meta-tagging are optimal.

CONTENT CREATION
When it comes to powerful and purposeful content, there are a lot of different components. Content creation goes beyond just digital publishing in a periodic manner, such as blog postings. Content needs to be purposed around your strategies and objectives. We repurpose your content and distribute your content assets across digital and diverse channels that will unify your branding message. It is better to have your content assets travelling down the same road and in one voice. We take your information flow and ensure that it is synced with customer expectations.

CONTENT STRATEGY
We make sure that you are meeting your customer at important checkpoints across their journey. If you fail to deliver at important stages of the buyer’s journey, you can miss out on important opportunities to convert them into customers. Most content is just digital noise – we offer different types of content and strategize around them. We inform your audience to specific information about our product, about your competitive advantages and what distinguishes you from the competition. We help give each line of copy a purpose.
● We assess and analyze the current content assets being used. We then reassess the information flow on the publishing channels that you are currently leveraging to tell your brand’s story.
● We create and re-purpose your content assets to serve your audience throughout their journey.
● We transmit your stories across paid and unpaid media channels (i.e. Google Adwords, Social Media). Through an open and transparent dialogue, we build authority by encouraging and promoting engagement and help build an online community.

CONTENT GOVERNANCE
In order to extend your content and make an impact on diverse digital platforms, from social media channels to on-page sources, you need content governance. Content governance is a set of guidelines that determines the when, where, why and how of content publishing and creating. Content governance is a broad strategy that intends for you to share the value of your branding information through content engagement. The Rank Squad helps you allocate your resources to yield the highest value for your prospects and customers. Before a single pixel is shown or a word is published, it must fit within a content governance framework. A content governance program is a precondition for successful content marketing. We will help govern your content in three ways:
● We will help you reach out and get direct access to your audience through social media.
● We will diversify your content portfolio by increasing consumer engagement. We will have an open door policy that will allow different members of your organization to contribute their expertise and add their voice to the content stream – this will diversify your content make-up.
● We will introduce broad, across-the-spectrum questions like “why is this content relevant and important?” Behind every published post, we will make sure that it is purposeful and fits into your content ecosystem.
