Ask about COVID content!
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, interest in out-of-hospital birth has skyrocketed. As a birth center or home birth midwife, you are super busy! We are able to write blogs and FAQs that address pregnancy and birth in our current healthcare climate, freeing you up to take care of families in your communities.
We were looking for a way to streamline how we handled public facing things like blogs and social media. We tried to outsource these things in the past, and it was not met with a lot of success. It’s really tough to have your voice, vision, and personality of the brand captured by someone who’s not the founder of the original company. What I’ve really liked and appreciated about April and how she has supported us in scaling up our marketing is that her voice and our voice as founders are similar. She’s really been able to capture the voice of our brand in a way that’s connected to how we would do it ourselves. That’s resulted in having an increase in engagement. We’re able to be confident that content is being delivered to our community in a regular way, and it’s more consistent than when it was just part of the many things we had to manage as business owners. We’ve also been able to collaborate and brainstorm with April new ways to reach our community and expanded how we use her copywriting to fit where we are at any given time.
After just one blog from April, my website traffic skyrocketed. I had hundreds of unique pageviews, and the amount of time users were on my site increased by over two minutes. On a personal level, April was able to take my cluster of ideas and fine tune my message to reach the most people possible. She created an educational yet personal experience for my users, and I could not have done it without her.
