  • Usable ! Content Strategy makes Content ! Findable! Readable! Accessible! What is Content Strategy?
  • In
order
to
facilitate
their
work
content
strategists
ask
ques6ons
like:

Why
‐
Why
is
the
content
required

 •

is
the
content
to
be

 •
When

Timing
of
content
crea6on

‐
Where
is
the
content
to
be

*Kris6na
Halvorson
 What is Content Strategy?
  • Just a thought “The
single
most
important
thing
most
Web
sites
can
offer
to
 their
users
is
content
that
those
users
will
find
valuable.”

 Keywords
 It’s
a
good
idea
to
start
a
list
of
keywords
or
 topics
associated
with
each
piece
of
content
 found.
This
helps
in
defining
official
list
of
 keywords
and
taxonomy
in
future.

 User Experience - Design
  • Messaging – value adding content.! * http://www.artinstitutes.edu/ User Experience - Design
  • “
Using
dummy
content
or
fake
informa0on
in
 the
Web
design
process
can
result
in
products
 with
unrealis0c
assump0ons
and
poten0ally
 serious
design
flaws.
Fake
data
can
ensure
a
 nice
looking
layout
but
it
doesn’t
reflect
what
a
 living,
breathing
applica6on
must
endure.
Real
 data
does.
