Is content strategy the dog your team’s been begging you to adopt? Better yet, is it the dog that followed you home, and now you wonder if you can keep him? Go ahead, let him sleep at the foot of your bed. Whether you work in a team of one or in a large marketing group, in a university, museum, or library, content strategy is the smartest thing you can add to the family.
Attentive, loyal, consistent…we’re not just talking about Fido. If you’re trying to find ways to differentiate your brand, connect with your audience, prioritize competing features, and align those tactical decisions with larger communication goals, content strategy can help. Whether you focus on design, information architecture, social media, or other areas, we’ll discuss how you can incorporate insights from this aspect of user experience design into your next project. Learn the questions a content strategist would bring to the table so you help your work come in on time, on budget, and with consistency and compelling engagement. Discover how to make the case for content strategy to others in your organization—and why it’s worth it to teach an old dog new tricks.

  36. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 36 © 2011 More like Apple’s “message architecture” Confident but approachable; accessible Simple Minimal detail Streamlined and anticipatory Inviting, friendly Supportive but not fawning
  37. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 37 © 2011 Old dog, new tricks: message architecture
  38. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 38 © 2011 What’s a message architecture? A hierarchy of communication goals that reflects a common vocabulary.
  39. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 39 © 2011 What’s a message architecture? Concrete, shared terminology— not abstract concepts.
  40. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 40 © 2011 Words are valuable, but meaningless without context and priority.
  41. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 41 © 2011 Cardsorting: • Engage in a tangible, hands-on way • Encourage debate and conversation • Identify points of disagreement • Prevent seagulling • Force prioritization • Encourage ownership & investment

  43. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 43 © 2011 Prioritize key messages

  48. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 48 © 2011 Why do this? Content strategy can help you communicate—with less time, money, and stress.
  49. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 49 © 2011 How can you do this? The money you save in early rounds of creative revision can more than pay for your message architecture.
  50. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 50 © 2011 Here’s an example… Cheeky • Witty and fun • Young without being childish Customer oriented and responsive • Approachable, friendly • Championing and empowering Helpful • Accessible

  53. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 53 © 2011 Message architecture… Cheeky Customer oriented and responsive Helpful
  54. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 54 © 2011 Versus brand values? Design Innovation Community Excellence These inspire, but without priority.
  55. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 55 © 2011 Versus a mission or vision? “Great design for everyone” Vision and direction are different. This inspires, but isn’t tactical.
  56. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 56 © 2011
  57. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 57 © 2011 Gracious • Welcoming, anticipatory service Elite and premium • Selective membership • “Curated” experiences Traditional • Enduring heritage • Preserving appreciation for quality Message architecture?

  62. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 62 © 2011 IAs and project managers… How do you plan for the future if you don’t fully understand the present?
  63. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 63 © 2011 How long?
  64. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 64 © 2011 How many screens?
  65. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 65 © 2011 How many modules?
  66. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 66 © 2011 How many wireframes?
  67. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 67 © 2011 How many content types?
  68. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 68 © 2011© http://www.flickr.com/photos/constructiondeal_marketing/4101803690/ Vision
  69. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 69 © 2011 What do we have?
  70. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 70 © 2011 How will we get more?
  71. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 71 © 2011 What do we have? Is it any good?
  72. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 72 © 2011 Conduct a content audit Conduct a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the current content against the goals of the message architecture.
  73. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 73 © 2011 Quantitative • Conduct a head count • Check parity of length and consistency of structure
  74. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 74 © 2011 Qualitative: is it good? Redundant, outdated, trivial?
  75. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 75 © 2011 Qualitative: is it good? Accurate? Current? Relevant? “Good” doesn’t have to be subjective!
  76. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 76 © 2011 So where to from here? • Prioritize new content types against the new communication goals. • Stay “no” and have a strategy behind it. • Ask not “How many pages,” but “what do we need to meet our communication goals?”
  77. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 77 © 2011 Content strategy can strengthen what you’re already doing. • Rally everyone around a vision • Minimize early design revisions • Align budget to communication goals • Cut subjectivity in tactical decisions
  78. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 78 © 2011 Content strategy, your new best friend.
  79. #eduiconf | @mbloomstein 79 © 2011 But wait! There’s MORE! • Content Strategy Google Group • Meetup.com/  your local content strategy chapter • Twitter: follow #contentstrategy • Content Strategy at Work, coming this spring!
