We Are Hiring!
  • High-performing content delivers your brand promise and adds real value to the customer experience
  • Created by award-winning experts, we specialise in content distributed, amplified and measured to maximise your investment
  • It’s about right-time content - from quarterly campaigns to weekly blogs to always on, we work with brands to help define and deliver the right strategy
  • And high-performing content is always loved, liked, shared and acted upon
    Here’s how…
  •  
  • While advertising sets out a brand’s promise, it’s our job to produce content that fulfils that promise. This informs our work across all channels.
  •  
  • We judge our content by its success in growing our clients’ brands.
  •  
  • We use our editorial thinking to define a brand’s content strategy then use our expertise to deliver that content.
  •  

We are Seven. We create content that speaks to people, not at them.

 
 
  • What we do

    Making content that people actually want takes a lot of thought. We do it in two steps, and the first usually informs the second. First we define exactly how editorial content helps deliver your brand promise. Then we get on and do it.
    Content Strategy
    Content Delivery
  • Content Strategy

    This is the who, what, why and how of content marketing – ensuring you’re making the right content, getting it in front of the right people and working efficiently.
    What do people want?
    How is this content distinctive? How could it only come from you? Where will people welcome your voice?
    What is the aim?
    What do you want people to know, feel and do? How should content be measured? Can your content be monetised?
    What is
    the right model?
    How to involve all your stakeholders? What structures and processes are needed? How does content complement your other marketing comms?
    What is the distribution plan?
    What formats, channels and frequency? What’s the balance of evergreen, campaign or real-time content? How will people find your content?
  • Content Delivery

    With your content strategy in place, stage two is the ongoing refinement of creation and distribution, being there for people, whenever your brand can help.
    1. Plan
    Applying everything we know to make sure your content’s useful, entertaining or hopefully both.
    2. Create
    Crafting distinctive content for all formats that’s accessible, shareable and welcome.
    3. Distribute
    Combining your owned media channels with paid promotion, making sure the right people see the right content – whether they’re looking for you or not.
    4. Optimising
    Doing more of what works best by measuring everything and taking learnings back into the planning process.
  • That’s the theory of how content delivers your brand promise, but what about in practice? Click below to find out.
