Create content worth their attention
Updated: Mar 16
Think about what catches your attention; what stops you from scrolling past a post; or why you visit an online store again. Which particular newsletter do you actually open? Usually, what they all have in common are stories that offer something of value—whether it’s insight, news, amusement, empathy, hope, beauty or entertainment.
Although most dictionaries define ‘content’ as any substance that fills space, the recent use of the word has taken a definite focus on information designed to be consumed online. When we say content, we’re talking about stories made to fit your online platforms and appeal to your audience.
When creating content, we recommend it supplement your business goals in a way that customers look forward to hearing from you. Surely you can do better than ‘Good morning’ forwards on Whatsapp.” Effective content works because it’s meaningful.
Stories for websites, blogs, and social media are the most common content orders we get from our clients, followed by commissions for film scripts and online publications. Occasionally, we take on more complex content forms too—like playlists.

We help our clients develop consistent and meaningful online stories that align with business goals. Because content with a good story is good business. As you know, there is less friction when customers trust who and what they're buying. We found that connecting with customers through shared values and affinities is a good place to start building trust. If you follow a consistent narrative that, over time, turns into a sort of kinship. Whether it be growing your brand awareness, turning customers into advocates, improving customer retention, driving sales, growing a community, or establishing authority and industry expertise, our experience has taught us that stories designed to supplement business goals have the best return on investment.
