A Content Strategy Roadmap
How to make a website: discover, define, design, develop, deploy. It’s a familiar framework for most of our project processes. Now along comes this content strategy thing. Sure, it sounds like a great idea, but how does it fit in with what we’re already doing? Kristina will walk us through a typical website project to demonstrate why, how, where, and when content strategy happens.
Content Strategy Will Save UX
Content is often the number one reason people come to your website. But content is hard to deal with, which means it often doesn’t turn out the way we’d quite planned.
That’s not good, because ultimately, it’s impossible to design a good user experience for bad content. When you introduce content strategy into your UX design process, you'll have tools to tackle tough content problems, right from the start of your design process.
