Solution Smith's Content Creation

At the San Diego Studio, Solution Smith does photograph and video production, and operates a full sandbox for software development, (everything is QCed before it goes live). Content pruning: Not all ideas result in success, content which for whatever reason is no longer beneficial needs to be pruned. If one applies the 80-20 rule to content there is content on the website that is no longer serving a function. The pruning can help re-focus a site on what the site is about today.

✔ Brand Marketing

Content needs to be unique. Unless your brand is the same as the other guys, your brand, the unique combination of talents, and areas of specialty are unique. Content needs to be written in such a way that it is unique and aids in brand marketing; Solution Smith has no difficulties in bringing these together.

✔ Increasing points of contact

The process of developing a new customer often requires multiple points of contact. The customer becomes acquainted with the company by seeing it in different contextual places. Online this may include social media, video sites, or other informational sites. This content needs to be appealing in the context it is used that is to say it needs to produce a happy response so that it is memorable. If it is not memorable or noteworthy it is not quality.

✔ Content Photography and Video

Content photography aids in telling the story about the materials and about the brand. Stock imagery is useful for blogs and news but it does not convey information about the brand or the brand's products. Stock imagery fails to authenticate, and fails to win over the; "I'll believe it when I see it," customer. The design and imagery on a page is the first thing the viewer engages with, and first impressions are important.
