It’s all too easy to get caught in the trap of thinking that content begins and ends with publishing.
In reality, it’s vital to identify user needs and align these to your commercial goals before embarking on any form of content creation.
Maybe you’re redesigning your website and need to take stock of your existing inventory, or perhaps you have hundreds of blog posts that are not generating enough traffic or demonstrating a measurable return. Either way, the ultimate goal should be to create searchable content that is available to the right people, in the right place, at the right time.
WooContent are a copywriting agency who combine content creation with digital marketing expertise. We help businesses plan and implement content strategies that have a positive, long lasting effect on commercial results.
1. Assessment and auditing
The first step in developing an effective content strategy is analysing what’s already there. By assessing the performance of existing content, we can suggest improvements relating to its structure, readability and accessibility. Content gaps are identified and measures are put in place to ensure that content is made more engaging and valuable for the user.
2. Strategy and planning
Based on the findings of our content audit, we are able to plan new and improved content strategies that take into account audience research and your individual business needs. From sitemap creation to landing page briefs, we will develop an in-depth document that is invaluable to both designers and content creators.
3. Guidelines and governance
Consistency is key across all forms of digital content, so having the right process in place to oversee the development of valuable, high-quality content is vital. We work closely with each of our clients to develop a governance structure that works for them, from the creation of content calendars and briefing documents to the management of content production, publishing and maintenance.
