August 26th, 2020 – Clearwater, Florida – The Content Workshop, an industry leader in content marketing,  announces the launch of  EDU by Content Workshop

What is EDU by Content Workshop 

Through a series of video lessons created by the veteran team at Content Workshop, EDU will help people who want to enter the content marketplace, freelancers who want to expand their services, and marketing teams that want to cross-train on new skills. 

David J Ebner, President of Content Workshop, had this to share about the launch of the program, “Although our team has been working nonstop on this program for the last five months, its production has been years in the making. It’s been our goal to help content creators since we first organized in 2013. In 2018, we published Kingmakers: A Content Marketing Story to provide a blueprint for writers in the marketing world. Today, we raise our sights again by launching a digital learning platform for content marketers called EDU.”

Ebner continued, “These courses are specifically designed to help those that have been marginalized by COVID-19. In fact, more than half of the team we brought on to help build the program had been furloughed or out of work due to the economic effects of the global pandemic. 

We accelerated our production timeline by seven months to build these courses quicker, because we felt the need was urgent. People need help now, and our mission of helping content creators thrive in the economy of the day dictated that we act swiftly.

I’m immensely proud of everything our team accomplishes in these courses.”

EDU includes two certificate programs, Copywriting and Graphic Design, as well as two career advancement programs,  Managing a Giggin’ Business and Gig Seekers.

Managing a Giggin’ Business and Gig SeekersTwo additional programs are being offered by Content Workshop: Managing a Giggin’ Business  and Gig Seekers.

David J Ebner had this to add when asked why they’d added these two programs, “It’s simply not enough to offer the skills someone needs to advance their career and not help them take the next step–figuring out how to apply them. These two programs are pivotal in these uncertain times. People across the world need help finding a job or learning how to leverage freelancing to keep a roof over their head. 

Our mission is to help content creators thrive in the economy of the day, and in the economy of the coming decade, that mission takes on a new, more urgent meaning.
