Effective Content Planning

WRK9 Workshops Track

102B, Wisconsin Center

WEDNESDAY, 1:00 - 4:30 PM

Content planning is where the rubber of a content strategy meets the road of day-to-day execution. More than just knowing what’s going on the homepage next Tuesday, content planning entails people knowing their roles, content aligning with intended goals and messaging, making data-driven decisions, and trying to head off missed opportunities at the pass. In a sense, can our digital content manage to step outside in the morning without its shirt on backwards, phone and wallet missing, and TP trailing from its shoes?

In this workshop, attendees will learn how to plan digital content publishing and promotion across multiple channels (including social media), how tools like content matrices and editorial calendars can facilitate content planning for both short-term projects or ongoing publications, how to support an integrated communications strategy on the ground, how to integrate analytics into your content decision-making process, and how to wrangle the human resources (and goodwill) required to put a content plan into practice.
