How smart content strategy sets the tone

Choosing a content strategy team
A great content strategy team brings together many approaches and skills.
To a great content strategist, there’s no such thing as a ‘boring’ industry. If it interests your audience, it should fascinate your content strategy team.
A content action plan that puts an unreasonable burden on your team – internal and external – is not a good plan. An effective partner is realistic about scaling up a content strategy while maintaining quality of work.
Content shouldn’t live in a vacuum. It needs to be well-designed, well-showcased, and well-promoted. Look for a team that’s strong across a range of disciplines.
Our content strategy process
Every business should aim to create content that no one else can. WEDIGITAL have a strong framework for putting you in the position to do just that.
Discovery + Stakeholder Interviews
Understanding the assignment
We kick off work by meeting with you for a series of critical stakeholder interviews. We hash out the strengths, weaknesses, and aspirations of your brand, align on a vision for the future, and set our goals and objectives for the rest of the project.
We often add in quantitative research in order to measure internal and external brand perception and understand how the brand is currently positioned.
Hearing the voice of the customer
Even in the most user-centered organizations, what we hear from customers is always a little different from what the business tells us. So we always seek to go straight to the source and conduct interviews with your clients and users, to understand what makes them tick – and what makes them act.
Crunching those numbers
Content strategies are about words, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore the numbers. Website analytics can help us understand who uses a site and how, providing insights about the performance of content. Digital ad performance data can give us hints about language that connects with customers. Any other data we can get our hands on, we’ll use to its utmost.
Putting it all together
Our ideas evolve as we bring in new information from your stakeholders, customers, and data. Once we have all the available information, it’s time to craft a plan.
We shape our recommendations by precisely defining your goals and objectives, identifying how content can contribute to the achievement of each objective, and laying out a roadmap for the needed content. This approach ensures we’re rigorous in prioritizing and justifying our recommendations.
Collaborating to drive success
Content strategy is not a one-way street. We present our findings to you, get your feedback on strategy, messaging direction, content planning, and any other aspect of the strategy we can work together to refine before we put it into practice.
