Content is the most important asset in your setup

Content is king? Ok, then it might be time to treat your Content properly. Benefit now from my almost 20 years of experience working in Content creation and Content management. Based on my journalistic background I provide numerous Content solutions for Agencies, Companies and Affiliates. From Website Content, Corporate Publishing, Content Curation & Localisation to Content Ideation, Concept and Content Project Management. But Content not only needs to be written - it also needs to be managed properly as well. Always. Inefficient Content worfklows & processes cost companies lots of money every year and lead also to dissatisfied departments, teams and employees. I offer Content management services such as Content Team Lead (remote), Editorial management, Freelancer coordination & Content HR consulting, workflow- and process optimisation. 


Let´s create something nice for your business now.


Do you really need to be in all available channels?

Tired of low traffic, weak performance of your paid Ads, irrelvant rankings or the constantly inefficient SEO approach? Today, for online businesses there are numerous channels with many marketing options out there. My goal is to make the complex world of online marketing a little bit easier. Even if there are so many channels out there - do you really need all of them? What do you really need? Online Marketing for B2B and B2C businesses should be data driven, need clear defined goals, and any kind of strategic approach to be successful. From Search Engine Marketing to Social Media-, PPC-, E-Mail-, Affiliate-, Mobile- or Content Marketing, as the most effective organic marketing tactic. It needs a mapped out buyer persona, target group- and competitor analysis a proper approach for conversion. Not every channel is made for selling purposes. Is it about brand awareness or selling? Do you only talk about your company, your products in all channels? Not every product/service is made for Social Media marketing success. The appropriate measure for your business is defined by your target group.


You just need to be, where your key audience is.

Working with me

Is austermedia an agency?

austermedia is a 100% freelance service run by one person. Me. Kay Auster. I set the pace, create & tailor all solutions for my clients myself, while I also oversee, lead and coordinate a network of international top-notch expert freelancers.

Do you provide all services yourself?

My expert network allows you to get access to all kind of potential solutions for your business - BUT - without the common huge overhead costs of bigger digital marketing agencies. Advantage: you don´t need to deal constantly with several different people.

What is you minimum budget?

My minimum project budget is 500€. A lot of projects use to be more long term or at least have a duration of several weeks. Charging my clients hourly based for longer term projects doesn´t sound pretty serious or trustworthy to me. I quote project based.
