Content Creation vs. Content Production with Brad Smith

Read more

“The key is not to create unique content for all of these different places. The key is to create one really good, deep piece of content that’s going to work for your brand.” Brad Smith is the founder and CEO of Codeless, a content production company for the best SaaS sites on the planet. Their articles have been featured in The New York Times, Business Insider, TheNextWeb, and more. At Codeless, content is not simply created, it is produced, and that makes all the difference. We discussed what this means on this week's show.

About Brad Smith

Brad Smith is the founder and CEO of Codeless, a content production company who’s content has been highlighted by The New York Times, Business Insider, The Next Web, and thousands more. He is also the co- founder of uSERP, a digital PR company that helps connect its clients with leading SaaS, eCommerce, SEO, tech, business, and marketing sites to boost brand authority.

Brad has been an in-the-trenches marketer for over a decade, rolling his sleeves up and doing all the dirty work from copywriting to SEO to marketing automation to site redesigns and more. All while working in-house, freelancing, consulting, and providing agency services to almost every industry that crosses your mind. Companies don’t need more content today. They need better content that actually performs. His companies fix that by producing & ranking SERP-topping content in the most competitive spaces -- tech, cybersecurity, finance, etc. — on the Internet.

Episode Highlights

Content curation vs. content production. “There’s a subtle difference that needs to be called out.” Simply put, there’s too much content today. It’s not just about creating the most content, it’s about producing the very best content.

What form of content are Brad and the team at Codeless producing the most of these days? “It’s a lot of the meat and potatoes—articles—as a lot is driven by SEO.” However, he went on to note how several are missing key SEO steps in their video and podcast production, such as transcripts.

When to outsource your content production. Brad began by impressing that this is not a binary choice—either outsourcing content or not. Rather, it depends on the project. Some pieces may be better handled internally.

How to outsource content production. “The problem in starting is that many don’t have it written down,” says Brad.

What’s needed for a good content handoff? Brand guidelines usually have info on the logo and font type but there are no guidelines for writing.” Brad encouraged brands to consider things like how formal or informal the writing should be, the use of contractions, and references to humor and pop culture. Including examples is also helpful. He also shared a simple tip: Voice Memos. Using this app on your phone to talk as the brand can be useful background info for your outsourced team.

What brand has made Brad smile recently? Brad shared the story of Stone Brewing out of San Diego, known for their signature beer Arrogant Bastard (a favorite of mine when I’m in that neck of the woods). Brad talked about how the brand is bold in both taste and vernacular.

CU2.0 Podcast Episode 99 Brad Smith on the Post-Pandemic Tech You Need Now

Read more

Call it a sea change - a massive alteration of the US financial services landscape.  Everything seems different today and it is because of the pandemic.

What do you need to be thinking abut now to survive tomorrow?

An interview I did with Cornerstone consulting firm's Brad Smith for a CUInsight article left me wanting more from Smith and here it is, a one-on-one podcast where we hear what smart credit unions are doing today.

Like what? Like recognizing that the mainstage role of the branch finally is over, probably forever. Smith is not saying he thinks branches are toast - he doesn't - but he thinks their role is necessarily changing as many of us have gotten accustomed to not needing the branch and many of us also are simply fearful of places like branches.

Much financial services has shifted to digital and there it will stay.

"The challenge for credit unions now is learning to sell through the digital channel," said Smith - and many institutions are playing catch up.  There's no time to delay.

An unexpected problem, said Smith, is that the economy's collapse has necessitated taking a new look at the FICO scores that used to enable confident and instant credit decisioning.  But that 800 score of May may be today's 700 score and falling due to late pays, job loss, and worse.  

How can an institution provide the fast decisioning consumers now expect - but do it safely? Smith has thoughts.

Another big winner today: MRDC, said Smith. Even those who had scorned it are diving in.  

One more big winner: video chat.  We use it at work and we are now ready to use it in financial services. "Video conferencing will be another net winner," said Smith.

An area where credit unions need to hop to it: credit card rewards programs need restructuring. The big players - Amex, Chase, Capital One - already are on the move.  Credit unions need to think fast and hard about this. But not many are, Smith admitted.

A last pandemic triggered push: a huge drive for cost savings and efficiencies. Many credit unions are looking to trim costs on commodity tech - think core systems - and redirect monies into strategic tech - such as true digital account opening.

Big changes are in motion.  Smith offers a road map in this podcast.  Take notes.

Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast 18: 'Outer Banks' Production Designer Daniel Novotny & Cinematographer Brad Smith

Read more

After a short break, we are back with a new episode of the Geektown Behind The Scenes podcast, and we return with two interviews on this show! The first is with cinematographer Brad Smith, and the second features production designer Daniel Novotny, both who were involved in creating the hit Netflix series 'Outer Banks'.

Cinematographer Brad Smith was responsible for the beautiful photography of the series. In the interview, we talk about how they used documentary film techniques to provide a sense of reality and to show the socioeconomic divide the two sides of the island. We also discuss the look of the series, and the incredible drone camera work which helped to immerse viewers in the island location.

Along with working on 'Outer Banks', Brad has served as director of photography on series such as 'Manifest', 'The Americans', 'Quantico' and 'Billions'.

The second interview features production designer Daniel Novotny. Daniel is something of a legacy production designer, as his father, Michael Novotny was also a hugely successful production designer. Prior to 'Outer Banks' Daniel was production designer on 'Gotham', 'Dominion', and the monolithic procedural drama 'CSI'.

For 'Outer Banks', Daniel talks about the challenges of making Charleston in South Carolina look like North Carolina, along with his favourite sets to create, and the rather surprising answer to which was the most challenging to work with!
