Whether you are working with small business clients or enterprises, getting companies to regularly curate, create, edit, audit, prune while also optimizing their content for users can be difficult to sustain without the right governance in place. The path to useful, usable and findable content is often narrow. Getting there can be a serious challenge. Sometimes you feel like people in the process are against you. There are a lot of adversaries and hurdles to overcome.

Even worse is the job of cat herding IT, stakeholders, marketing, sales and writers to work together to create the kind of strategic content that will speak to their target consumer and build their content brand. The end result is all too often boring sales fluff that no one ever reads. In the end, you find yourself doing a Chinese fire drill to create a bunch of last minute ad hoc content that is seldom on brand and more often than not fails to tell the client’s story.

It doesn't have to be this way if you choose to take a stand during the early planning phases of a project and stress the importance of a content strategy. Turn adversaries into allies with a strategic approach to your content. It won't be easy. It can get political.
