Content Strategy for Everything

  1. CONTENT STRATEGY FOR THE WEB Everything Kristina @Halvorson Coauthor, Content Strategy for the Web CEO, Brain Traffic and Founder, Confab Events
  2. I wrote the first version of Content Strategy for the Web in 2009.
  3. In it, I defined content strategy as “the practice of planning for the creation, delivery, and governance of useful, usable content.”
  4. Not just... • What
  5. But … • What • Why • How • When • For whom • By whom • With what • Where • How often • What next
  6. In 2012, I coauthored the 2nd edition with Melissa Rach.
  7. This time, defining “content strategy” was a bit trickier. (Read: there were several caveats.)
  8. At exactly this time, there was another trend on the rise.
  9. Content marketing is the approach of creating and distributing valuable and consistent content to a targeted audience, with the objective of driving some profitable action… – “The Evolution of Content Marketing Will Include Intelligent Content” Joe Pulizzi, 1/12/2015 “
  10. The marketing industry happily complied.
  11. This is big trouble for companies who still can’t manage the content they had in the first place. Content strategy is more important than ever.

  15. Core strategy: This defines where you will focus your efforts to improve content substance, structure, workflow, and/or governance. It must provide clear boundaries for what you will do … and what you won’t. © Brain Traffic 2015
  16. Substance: Story, topic, brand elements, voice and tone Structure: Organization, categorization, component elements CONTENT
  17. Substance… …fulfills business objectives by meeting audience needs. Structure… …makes content findable and usable for users, and manageable for technology. CONTENT
  18. PEOPLE Workflow: Roles, processes, tools Governance: Policies, standards, guidelines
  19. Workflow... ...creates efficiencies across content properties. Governance… ...empowers, facilitates, and aligns. PEOPLE

  28. 28 What is “a content strategy”? • A content strategy—any strategy—is the path you’ll take towards meeting your goals and fulfilling your vision. It may be one of a few parallel paths towards the same goals. • A content strategy helps define what you WILL do and what you WON’T do. • All tactical content initiatives must map back to your strategy. • Your content strategy should force you to prioritize and to say “no.”
