Cart, Meet Horse: Content Strategy for Content Management

A session at CMS Expo 2013

Tuesday 14th May, 2013

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Problem: Before you can consider a new CMS, you need to know your content—and your communication goals.

Solution: We’ll discuss the key steps of a core content strategy process to audit your content and determine what you really need in a CMS.

If you’re considering a new CMS, stop. Before you can determine the fields and tags and functionality you need in technology, think about the content you need to support. How should it surface and what’s the message it needs to send? Enter brand-driven content strategy. We’d discuss the value of a message architecture to align your organization around specific content types and guide a content audit—then dig into how a content audit can inform your content model. There’s so much to do before you choose or implement a CMS, so c’mon! Let’s get started!
