Your content is the basis for your success in online business. It is your unique selling point. So pay him your full attention. We support you in this – from the analysis to the strategy, the editorial plan and the copywriting.
What Is Content Strategy?
The content strategy comprises analysis, planning, creation and management of the relevant and useful content.
Web applications are developed to provide information. Any content you post online – be it a navigation element, a blog, a product or an image – is content. It must be aligned both with the needs of your users and your business objectives. Ensuring this is the task of the content strategy.
Why the Content Strategy is so important
For months you are working intensively on your new website. Concept and design are in place, development is in its final stages, and the Golive is imminent. Then the wicked awakening: Your content managers get down to creating the texts and realize two things:
- You don't have enough time to create the more than 1000 pages of content until the golive. The golive is being postponed! This costs money, time and nerves.
- Concept and design are not at all suitable for the actual content. The pages no longer look the same with the filled content as in the concept.
Avoid this error and put the content at the beginning of your web project: Content First!
