Stop assuming that simply having a website is enough. You need your website to be seen by potential clients, and creative content is how it’s done. And we’re not just talking about blogs. Go beyond blogging. Use video content, podcasting, social media, white papers, and so much more. Once you lay out the content, you build the trust. Once they trust you, you’ll see growth in traffic, influence, and leads. Just take a look at these nonprofits that were transformed by creative content.

It has been viewed more than 7.6 million times.
The Sandy Hook Promise
You may remember when Sandy Hook Elementary School released a powerful video about school shootings. The Sandy Hook Promise formed following the aftermath of the tragedy in 2014, with the goal of providing programs that protect children from senseless shootings. The video, which is called “Evan,” follows a teenage boy and his pen pal. While watching Evan throughout the video, you miss the shooter planning his attack in the background. The message is about overlooking warning signs.
