Or in an actual office, factory, shop floor or boardroom where decisions are being made and hustle and bustle is going on in the background that is related to what your business is all about and doing.
Then that my friend, is content gold right there! And here I'll explain to you about how you can go behind the scenes of your own business (not matter how small or inanimate you are) and turn that into content magic!
Going and Showing the Behind the Scenes
Going behind the scenes, AKA the Iron Curtain, is where you turn what does go on behind it, into content. By just writing about what happens and takes places on a day to day level in your business premises or even business world. That can go even deeper into talking about who it is you do wheelin' n dealin' with on a regular basis and even what your relationship or partnership together is like. You could take pictures of these things, whatever they are, whether it's a factory floor and lots of people doing lots of different things. To taking video of the day to day goings on that make up the products or services your business provides. To just small places with only a couple of people. Or even just yourself! You could probably show off something that people don't see that makes it tick!

That could be just your computer in the corner of the room! Where the "magic" happens!
Anything like that which people can see that shows who you are, either as a business or as an individual, a sole trader, freelancer etc like myself and many thousands of others like me, but more for bigger actual businesses where stuff really does happen and go on behind the Iron Curtain!
So it could be pictures, stories about those pictures, what people are looking at exactly and why and or what happens here to videos about it that talk about it and more. And if you have a lot of different things that do go on behind the scenes then you could be looking at quite a lot of content, that can be delivered, read, recieved in quite a lot of ways.
