Are you a large company with a recognized brand trying to expand or a startup trying to gain recognition in an already competitive market? Are you selling a product online? Do you specialize in localized services like landscaping, insurance, real estate or chiropractic care? Are you trying to drive traffic to your website for more views or attract new clients from across the country? Is your goal to fill a yoga class or attract and retain regular massage clients?

Some people might think working with an advertising agency is old school, but small, think-outside-the-box agencies like New School offer a variety of services to clients.

Thanks to Google and search engine optimization (SEO), a potential customer in California can find your business in Michigan. That’s where content marketing comes in. Whether it’s a website blog, direct mail campaign, promotional video, email newsletter or social media posts, businesses need to provide valuable information to prospective clients and customers as well as established ones.
