Content strategy is the creation, publication, and governance of useful, usable content. I didn’t make it up, I’ve just got a lot of practice. I've spent over a decade working with startups, fortune 500 brands, and product companies to solve big content challenges.
My background in writing and information systems, combined with a passion for digital experiences, led me from copywriting to content strategy. One thing I've learned over the years is that content—the story—sits at the heart of every great product.
Practically speaking, the day-to-day activities of a content strategist vary. I've included a "best of" list below.
We can work alone or plugged into sprint teams. We're constantly collaborating with designers, engineers, and stakeholders. We work on websites, apps, and marketing campaigns, sometimes flexing between workstreams.
When the work is done right, content strategists bring clarity and focus to projects.
When the work is done well, things come together and it feels like magic.
