Supercharge your business with content strategy
Content strategy creates options.
Content strategy might feel like a puzzle or chess game—but a focused strategy can help you win. An impactful content strategy can accomplish many important business objectives—like raising brand awareness, educating users, driving conversions, and boosting revenue. A content strategy is the first key step to focusing your content marketing effort.
What is a content strategy?
A content strategy is a comprehensive action plan for content marketing. You need a content strategy that’s designed around your organization’s key business goals—and evolves as your business changes.
A successful content strategy—
- Generates positive ROI
- Unlocks valuable business opportunities
- Prevents technical issues from arising
Content strategies identify potential courses of action and recommend the most attractive options for next steps. A content strategy is outcome focused—but also matches output expectations with the available resources.
How a content strategy is created
Developing a content strategy goes something like this—
1- Discovery call: The first step is a discovery call to discuss the organization’s key business objectives and how a content strategy can map to those objectives.
2- Proposal: The client receives a formal proposal for a content strategy. The proposal provides a basis for conceptual and contractual agreement between the client and content marketer.
3- Information gathering: Your content marketer gathers more information on your organization and your competitors’ content strategies.
4- Information analysis: Your content marketer organizes and analyzes the information and data that’s pertinent to your content strategy.
5- Formulate a content strategy: Your content marketer develops a content strategy with a set of recommended options based on the results of her analysis.
6- Content strategy report: The client receives a comprehensive content strategy report containing all the data, analysis, and recommended actions.
7- Consider next steps: With no obligation to act, the client can contemplate the content strategy recommendations and determine appropriate next steps.
