Who Are AFCI Digital Content Creators?
The Digital Content Creator Section was started in 2018 at the request of the bloggers, YouTubers, social media professionals, and other creatives who have a digital focus to their business. The DCC section of AFCI is designed with the unique needs of these content creators in mind. With the constant changes to social media algorithms, the addition of new platforms, and need to be ahead of the curve for their own businesses and when working with brands, the DCC section looks to be at the intersection of digital presence and creativity.
In addition to collaborating with other DCC members, most Digital Content Creators collaborate with others in AFCI. Manufacturers regularly look to the DCC membership when selecting brand ambassadors or spokespeople for their new product releases. The membership has a wide variety of skills which include copywriting, social media, blogging, video (including planning, filming, and editing), photography, calligraphy and hand lettering, design, sales, and marketing. Reach out to our leadership to learn how a Digital Content Creator can support your team in achieving your digital goals.
For members who attend Creativation, you may be familiar with many of our members already, as the DCC creates an educational block at Creativation that is open to all members. Digital Content Creator members have led classes on making the most of Creativation, networking, filming video, SEO, authoring a book, managing your email list, and more.
