Digital Content Strategy
What is a content strategy?
A content strategy is the planning, development, management and governance of content. It is never a one-and-done thing once you publish – it always requires routine, ongoing maintenance. Your content includes not only the text on the page, but the images and multimedia that accompany it. It connects your business goals with your users’ needs and focuses on the lifecycle of the content as a business asset.
Everything that we create (text, data, graphics, video and audio) becomes part of the user experience and journey. When you deliver useful, usable content you engage, convert and retain your audience online. When your content is in good shape, you deliver value and form trust with your audience as well as elevate your brand.
