Developing a strong content strategy may be the smartest sales call you ever make.
- You’re ready to add content to your new website
- Your current website content is in total disarray
- Your online customers can’t find accurate information
- No one knows who’s in charge of your website
It’s time to get organized for good.
Defining your content strategy isn’t a glamorous exercise. But one thing is certain: you will never regret taking the time to go through the process and follow the recommendations that come out of it. Conversely, you most definitely will regret it if you don’t. You may already know that. Ask yourself these questions:
- What story do you have to tell?
- Where should it go?
- How should it be labeled?
- Who can go in and make changes later?
- Why are you still pushing a product your competition just refined?
- How do you keep your content up to date?
Keeping your content fresh requires planning.
Keep your website content relevant and useful for your customers and easy for your internal teams to manage.
Consider the following:
- If your customers can’t find the latest technical specs for your product or a clear distinguishing feature, they’re bound to move on.
- If there’s no established guideline for how to save and label your assets, it won’t be long before no one knows how to find documents and update them easily.
- If no one in particular is in charge of routinely checking your content for accuracy and relevancy, your customers will be confused—and they’ll go elsewhere to find what they’re looking for.
It pays to plan ahead.
