In today’s online world (and offline, for that matter), the amount of content stimulus consumers face is overwhelming. Push-oriented marketers are still trying to shout out as loud and as often as possible. Without a clear view of both your goals and the needs of your target audience, you will lose the race.
What Is a Content Strategy?
A content strategy is a steering document that aligns your brands corporate and strategic objectives with an effective marketing communications plan. Simplified, we will outline
- what to say
- where to say

- how to say it
The Strategy defines your ‘brand personality’ and provides a framework for communication, so the brand is perceived as intended.
The strategy is based upon an existing business strategy. It defines the strategic goals of content and the means to reach them. It provides guidance for content producers on how to create consistent messaging and tone of voice. It also creates understanding of how you should present your brand throughout the content ecosystem, and to whom you should be talking to.
