The Internet is littered with “content” providers, however, the vast majority are generic writers and videographers. You’ll find themworking as freelancers, insideadvertising and public relations agencies and at technology delivery and service providers, including the many video streaming, webcast and website design companiesholding themselves out as content providers in order to capitalize on what they view as one more revenue stream. Regardless of where they reside, generic content providers, by definition, lackhigh level subject matter expertise in any particular area.Instead, they rely on clients – consuming significant staff time -or embark on the minimum possible research, merely recycling what they find, directly or indirectly at the client’s expense.
