Content Puppy: A new resource for Atlanta content marketers

According to HubSpot, the average budget spent on company blogs and social media has tripled in the last three years.

With more viewers fast forwarding past commercials and avoiding online banners, smart marketers have been finding new and interesting ways to connect with customers.

The most popular method: Content Marketing.

The result: companies connect with customers, attract new audiences and build web traffic.

Good content doesn’t just get clicked and watched, it gets liked, retweeted and shared with friends.

Introducing a New Resource: Content Puppy

One possible solution is a new content creation company I’ve recently started, right here in Atlanta, called Content Puppy (www.contentpuppy.com).

Through Content Puppy, I’ll be available to work with marketers on a project basis, and create whatever types of content they need, whether it’s writing blogs, designing infographics or shooting and editing YouTube videos.

If for some reason I can’t find the writers, designers, videographers or editors needed for a project, I know people that know other people. I’m sure we’ll find a way to get things done.

So check out Content Puppy. It’s exactly what I think Atlanta content marketers need—access to a reliable resource that knows how to solve problems, meet deadlines and engage customers.
