The Geo Group Corporation Offers Value Content

December 25th, 2010

Out of all the translation agencies located in Madison, WI and the surrounding areas, The Geo Group Corporation seems to be the only one who offers valuable content on their website. If one does a search on Google for “translations, Madison, Wi” there are a handful of locally owned agencies that come back as results (The Geo Group Corporation being # 1). Following the links to each of the other agencies reveals that they are similar in their simplistic designs and lack of depth. Depth refers to the amount of levels of information available on a website. When considering what value content is, think beyond a blog or news feed. Not one of the other agencies offer educational content such as webinars or whitepapers. In contrast,  The Geo Group Corporation does. While there aren’t many of these educational items on our site, the handful that are have proven to be very beneficial to our potential and current clients. More are slated to be produced and posted for 2011.
