New WordPress Digital Content Service Helps Web Designers Grow Their Business – PremiumWP.Services

Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

As more web service-related businesses compete online to find new clients and sell WordPress services, things are only going to get tougher for newer and smaller web design firms and individuals starting out, especially those low on time and financial resources.

A newly launched and highly affordable “done for you” service called PremiumWP.Services helps web designers, web developers and content markets struggling to grow their business online with a unique competitive edge that provides them with leverage in the form of expertly-written, publish-ready WordPress content for their websites and blogs.

“20 years ago, Bill Gates said that ‘Content is King’ and then 8 years ago, internet marketing pioneer Seth Godin declared that ‘Content marketing is all the marketing that’s left.’ Content marketing is the most effective way to market and promote a business online, but everyone is just ‘too busy’ nowadays to write their own web content,” says Martin Aranovitch, the owner and main content publisher of PremiumWP.Services.

“Outsourcing the creation of content about WordPress to writing services and freelance writers typically leads to disappointing results. Often, you end up with poorly-written ‘blog filler’ articles that offer readers little to no substance and need to be completely rewritten. What’s the point of outsourcing to save time if you then have to rewrite all of the content again? It just defeats the entire purpose of outsourcing,” says Martin, who has spent years educating businesses about using WordPress to grow their business online and has written a number of comprehensive WordPress training guides for non-technical users as well as authoring a WordPress training plugin.

PremiumWP.Services provides web designers, web developers and even web content managers with very high quality, expertly-written WordPress content every month that is not only unique, original and ‘publish-ready’ to free them from having to write and publish web content on a regular basis for their own sites, but the detailed WordPress step-by-step tutorials and comprehensive articles are actually cheaper to buy than if you outsource work to cheap freelance writers, where you still have to manage the entire content writing process.

With PremiumWP.Services exclusive WordPress content membership service, all of the work of planning, researching, writing, editing and creating content each month that engages readers and is also optimized for search engines is completely done for you.

Almost half of all the world’s CMS-driven websites and blogs are currently powered by WordPress. This is largely due to an active and thriving WordPress developer community that makes thousands of apps (called ‘plugins’) and web templates (called ‘themes’) available to WordPress users and people who start businesses selling WordPress services.

Although WordPress is taking over the CMS world, Martin recognized an underlying problem that lies at the heart of the growth and sustainability of WordPress itself.

“The target audience for tens of thousands of technical-minded web developers and service providers comprises mostly of non-technical users and businesses who don’t care about all the technical stuff, they just want a website that will get them results online,” says Martin. As a WordPress educator and trainer for many years, Martin has seen first hand that the more you educate potential clients about the benefits of using and choosing WordPress, the more WordPress products and services they will want to use and buy from you. Businesses that continually provide content to educate and train prospective clients and non-technical users about WordPress, therefore, are bound to capture a greater share of the WordPress services market.

Martin then provides further insight into this problem by stating that “although there are many tutorials and articles about WordPress online, these are mostly targeted towards technical people and ‘do-it-yourself’ website owners who don’t really need to buy WordPress services. To make things worse, whatever content is available online to educate and train non-technical users and beginners about WordPress is there to promote someone else’s business, not yours. Every WordPress service provider still has to write and publish their own content to grow their business. PremiumWP.Services is an ideal service for WordPress-related businesses because it provides you with a complete ‘done for you’ WordPress content strategy that will educate your potential clients to choose your services instead of someone else’s, and then helps you train your new clients afterwards, so they will continue to use your services, not someone else’s, because of their ongoing relationship with you. Without continually publishing new content about WordPress that educates non-technical users to do business with you, you have no sustainable way to compete against companies that employ web content writers to gain a greater share of the web services market online using content marketing.”

According to its owner, PremiumWP.Services has developed a highly effective method that combines WordPress expertise with manually adding hundreds of unique variations to the content, thus ensuring that no two versions of the tutorials and articles that members receive is the same. This provides users with comprehensive expert-quality content that does not require rewriting to make it unique for search engines. In addition, content that is written exclusively for members of PremiumWP.Services comes with private label rights, allowing users to completely edit the content to suit their needs and even claim authorship of the content.

“I have spent years developing our unique ‘done for you’ and ‘publish-ready’ system,” says Martin of his newly-launched WordPress content service. “All the hard work has been done for you. You can literally just copy, paste and schedule an entire month’s worth of great WordPress content to publish on your website or blog. This then frees you up from having to create content for the rest of the month, and lets you focus your time more productively on other areas of your business, like finding and servicing new and existing clients. While you’re busy doing other things, your SEO-optimized content is working for you 24/7, getting indexed on search engines, helping to drive new traffic organically and keeping visitors engaged on your website and looking at your services, instead of going to your competition for information that can help them grow their business online.”

If content marketing is the only type of marketing left, then somewhere along the line, someone has to do the time-consuming work of writing great quality content for your business. That’s where PremiumWP.Services can give you the unique leverage that you need for expertly-written content at a price that no other content writing service can match.

PremiumWP.Services is an exclusive membership site with only limited spots available. If you need expertly-written WordPress content to grow your web services business, visit http://premiumwp.services.

International Clothing Line Shares Strategies with Aspiring Designers; Gives Tips on Creating Apparel with Universal Appeal


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 03, 2014

This week, i.CTZN’s co-founders, Sheena Gao and Laura Krusemark, shared their insight on how they developed and created an apparel line with universal appeal and tapped into foreign markets abroad. After 15 years of working in Apparel and Product Development with some of the leading retailers in the U.S., as well as mentoring many talented designers from Europe, Asia, and within the U.S, Gao felt that there was a need to develop a stylishly unique clothing line that would drive home the message of attaining universal oneness & embrace all cultures globally. Gao partnered with long-time colleague Krusemark to create this apparel line, stemming from their passion and love for travel; thus, their vision for the international traveler with International Citizen, also known as i.CTZN was conceived and came to life. The idea of having an edgy apparel line for the avid traveler to dress with a sense of ease, incorporating design detail and patchwork symbolic to the many different countries around the world would be their underlying theme to drive home this message of a united front with their brand.

“From our world travels, said Gao and Krusemark, we’ve realized there is a niche market for our unique style that blends cultural details into garments. We incorporate these cultures and countries by showing their flags or patches of screen-print calligraphy in different languages, but with a universal style that is comfortable to wear and easy for travel.”

Currently, i.CTZN is housed in Asian markets abroad such as Tokyo, and have garnered a lot of interest in other countries such as Germany, Spain, and France, as well as Canada. Some of the best strategies for i.CTZN to be introduced to these markets is having done trade shows such as participating as exhibitors at Las Vegas’ Magic Marketweek. They feel this is the best way to not only provide their brand exposure, on market levels locally and internationally, but has also been the best approach to help them promote and drive sales. It has proven to be a great way to build relationships with various buyers, depending on what trade shows they decide to participate in. Some ways they test the markets abroad is by doing social media campaigns through utilizing Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and their fashion blog to gain consumer feedback on their garments before investing their time in a particular destination. This could be as simple as posting certain items from their new collection and reviewing the comments and responses from a geographic location they are trying to target abroad. They do a lot of online marketing, or “guerrilla marketing” which consists of low-cost unconventional methods to create a buzz about their brand in order to stimulate more brand awareness. This can include short video posts, vining, online competitions, videos of their fashion shows, and behind-the scenes footage of their events to keep their audience & social network engaged. Rather than spending money on costly advertising campaigns, Gao and Krusemark feel this is a great way to start for new designers.

Through Gao and Krusemark’s personal journey of creating i.CTZN they have learned the strategies that are effective in building their brand locally and internationally. They hope to soon expand in having a line of shoes, bags, accessories and travel gear to include within the family of i.CTZN. International Citizen will be having their next fashion show with RAW Artists on April 13th in LA. Those interested can stay connected at http://www.ictzn.com.
