By telling the story behind your company, you connect people with your message and increase your brand awareness. To increase your online visibility it is recommended to use strong SEO titles and optimise the text for SEO. So you create the title, text and send it together with up to five photos and we’ll upload it on our website and share it on our Instagram and Facebook stories. Download the guidelines here.
