Something We are Not

We put on a lot of different hats here at Copyjuice.com. But two things we don’t try to be are so-called Social Media Experts and SEO Gurus.

That’s because we don’t have to be  either of those things…

The most reliable path to success in the search engines and on social media is having valuable content to share with your audience (aka your customers and clients). It just so happens that’s exactly what we create all the time. From amazing infographic designs, to viral videos to helpful articles and entertaining stories – the stuff we make is what drives success online. That includes places like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. It’s what takes you to the top of Google and Bing’s results pages.

Think about it this way…

Social media is the television set…what you create and share via those social “channels” are the TV programs and movies that everyone watches. Your original content becomes the delicious digital dishes in your social media restaurant.

Search Engine Optimization is the new Yellow Pages. But you can’t just name your company something like AAAAA Heating & Cooling to get the first spot in this kind of phone book. You have to prove you are the best if you want to be No. 1.

Our biggest goal at Copyjuice is to teach you how to create that killer content through our Creative Marketing Blog. Because without content, search and social aren’t going to do much for you.

Since it’s not always easy to find the time and resources to do it yourself, we can help you figure out what kind of content marketing is going to work best for your business. Then we’ll also help you make it happen by determining the most effective way to spread that content online.
