What Does a Content Specialist Do in a Digital Marketing Agency?

A content specialist working in a digital marketing agency creates content that supports the clients’ brand and marketing strategy. This includes a variety of tasks: defining the brand’s voice, identifying the target audience, and planning content strategies.

The content specialist works closely with the marketing team to ensure that the content supports the company’s goals and resonates with the target audience.

Differences Between Social Media Content Specialists and Copywriting Content Specialists

There are two main trends in digital content production: social media content production and traditional blog production. These two areas differ in many ways.

  1. Content Format and Length: Social media content is often shorter and more concise. The lifespan of social media content is a few weeks, whereas blogs allow for more in-depth discussion and thorough handling. Blogs appear in search engines for years and can significantly add value to the customer’s purchase process.
  2. Audience Interaction: Social media enables immediate interaction with the audience, whereas blogs are not intended for direct communication with the reader.
  3. Publishing Frequency: Social media content is updated dozens of times a week, whereas blogs or landing pages are created a few times a month.
  4. Visuality: Social media platforms emphasize visual content, such as images and videos. Blogs, on the other hand, rely more on text, search engine optimization, content length, and value addition.
  5. SEO and Search Engines: Blogs are effective for search engine optimization (SEO) to bring visitors to websites regularly and predictably, while social media content does not directly affect search engine rankings.
  6. Goal Setting: Social media content often focuses on brand visibility and community building, while blogs can serve many purposes, such as adding value or demonstrating expertise.

As a content specialist, it is essential to understand the differences between these two formats and know what suits you best.
