2. CONTENT STRATEGY

To get the job done, you need crisp, compelling content that snags the reader’s attention — in 25 words or less. It’s a specialized skill.

Our content strategy process gives you step-by-step guidance to get it done.

Content strategy gives you an outline — crafted by a website conversion expert — to follow in order to write your story in the cohesive and abbreviated way that website visitors demand.

Using the insights gained during strategy sessions, the outline recommends content that will keep your visitors engaged and funnel them through your site toward the actions you want them to take before they leave. 

Deliverables:

  • Content Audit
  • Voice and tone guidance to match your brand
  • Matrix: Key content for key audiences
  • Information architecture and sitemap
  • Content outline with top-level headlines and calls to action
  • Expert tips for website writing
