Content isn't just words. It's everything that goes into a web site -- copy, images, videos, blog feeds, metadata, and more. So, what's a content strategy? It's a plan that works out where the content comes from, how it's updated, and --most important -- how your content is working for your site's visitors.

If how content is handled on your site is a little hit-and-miss, this workshop will help you pull things together with the result being a more organized, more effective site. Some of the specifics we'll cover include:

Content Strategy Basics: What, Why, When, Where, How, Who Case Studies: Websites with content strategy, and websites without CS & UX: How content strategy fits into design and user experience Skills: What talents a content strategist needs to have Deliverables: The tools of the content strategists' trade Practice: How one goes about doing content strategy Context: The state of the discipline, and content strategy outside the web

This is an intro to mid-level workshops for marcom managers, emerging content strategists, web writers, designers, information architects and other people who’d like to improve their work with better content.
