Content Strategy - FCIP March Meetup

The case for Content Strategy:  Aka, “Let’s start a blog,” does not a content strategy make
Laura Bailey - Presenter

In today’s world, where brands are expected to be publishers, digital audiences are inundated with content. But how much of it is really useful to target audiences? How much truly guides in meeting business goals? And how much goes directly to the massive heap of content that never does what the creators intended it to? The answer to the last question is ‘a lot.’ Without strategy, best intentions can lead to ineffective digital projects and a waste of time and resources.

This talk will discuss why content strategy is a must and how you can employ systematic content strategy techniques to benefit your web site work and other digital content projects.  We’ll explore how to ask the tough questions and plan for realistic, ROI-driven content that best aligns with business and user needs.

    Great meeting! As always. This is just a great group.

    Here is a link to Gail Goodman's Keynote that I spoke about - it is very interesting and speaks to a lot of what this meeting was about.

    I'm new to the area and the group. So far so good, I appreciate the thoughtful and well-prepared speaker, presentation, and group discussions. It brought in seasoned pros and neophytes all with good questions. We're bombarded with trends so much sorting the "wheat from the shaft," face-to-face is essential. Bravo to the organizers and participants!

    Made me think about as an (aspiring) software engineer, what sort of tools can web developers build into sites that can assist content strategists. Great talk with thought provoking content!
