About this course
I’m very pleased that you’re just as interested in the topic of content as I’ve been since my youth. I’ve been dealing with content since the nineties. During my studies, I worked with a news agency, in the online editorial office of a television program, and even for MTV. I’ve always been fascinated by content, so it was a logical conclusion to found my own content agency in 2010 with the wonderful name of Crispy Content®.
At Crispy Content®, we navigate supply and demand using digital content in all shapes, colors, and languages. To us, this is the definition of “Content Marketing.”
This enthusiasm is also what drove me to create an online course on the subject. But really, there’s also another reason:
Most books, lectures, and webinars approach content from a strategic perspective. This makes sense, since content is a soft currency that can only be converted into financial success through its strategically planned use in marketing and sales. However, it’s just as much of a challenge to change the abstract idea of content into tangible reality and to regularly transform a large volume of high-quality users into enthusiastic customers. Good content can do this—we just have to create it.
Who “Making Content” Is For
This course is intended for everyone who has to produce content in their everyday working life: in business communications, the marketing team, the sales department, at the management level. In other words, it’s intended for anyone who needs to use digital communication in some way. In the end, this course is really for everyone.

The Book Related to the Course
If you’d like more background information, I would recommend picking up my new book, Methodisches Content Marketing, or “Methodological Content Marketing” in English, coming out in August 2019 with Springer Gabler Verlag. So far, it’s only in German, but hopefully there will be an English version soon. There you’ll find the material in this course, in more detail and with more extensive background information, which I also tie into the digital marketing canon.
All of my methodological, time-tested knowledge from the last years is included in my book. Because one thing is clear: creative content production also needs to have measurable results—and methodology gives us the security we require.
