Content Marketing & Copywriting
Content marketing is one of the most effective ways to reach and convert your prospects and customers and has proven benefits such as:
- Driving Product Sales
- Building Customer Loyalty
- Generating Leads
- Expanding Your Customer Base
- Increasing Brand Awareness.
Content marketing—the development and distribution of helpful or engaging online content (blogs, videos, social media posts, etc.)—is the act of stimulating interest in a brand’s products or services.
However, all content is not created equally.
You need to fuse a sound content marketing strategy with strong copywriting and a creative vision if you want to increase brand awareness, generate leads, and grow ROI.
R.C. Brayshaw is ready to help you reach your ideal customers in ways that lead to business growth today.
Our team is exceptionally well-versed in copywriting and content marketing tactics and strategies. From printed materials to websites to social media content and beyond, we deliver content that achieves your goals and accelerates your business.
Customers Don't Act If Copywriting Doesn't Attract
Copywriting—writing text to increase brand awareness and persuade your ideal customers to take the desired action—is a critical component of any good inbound content marketing strategy.
However, it’s just as important for direct marketing efforts such as paid advertising, promotional products, SEO, website copywriting, and much more.
Whether you need a multichannel solution or a single-channel addition to your existing marketing mix, R.C. Brayshaw is here to help.

Content Marketing Strategy Tips
STEP #1 – Define Your Mission and Goals
What are you trying to achieve? Brand awareness or lead generation, for example? Each of these goals will require a different approach, so start by writing down what your goals are.
STEP #2 – Use Key Progress Indicators (KPIs)
Use SMART goals to ensure that your goals are specific and measurable. These milestones will help you stay focused and what you’re trying to achieve.
- Earn a defined amount of revenue within a specific time period (monthly, quarterly, annually, etc.).
- Earn quality leads by driving traffic to your landing page or lead magnet.
- Increase email subscriptions by a given amount in a given time period.
- Increase engagement on social media by a given amount.
- The sky is the limit here; just make sure your KPIs align with your stated goals.
STEP #3 – Use Analytics to Define Your Audience
Dive into your website, social, email, etc. analytics to learn about your ideal customers.
STEP #4 – Conduct a Content Audit
What assets do you already have? What can you repurpose, and what needs to be built from scratch? By identifying what you have, you can more effectively project what you need. Look for your content gaps, as well as their effectiveness in the past.
STEP #5 – Define Your Best Content Channels
Use the information from Steps 1-4 to assess where your content will be most effective.
