Content Production

Don’t let content production be the project bottleneck

Robert Mills • 2 minutes

There are pitfalls around every corner when planning, producing and publishing content for website redesign projects.

Bottlenecks during the content production process are usually the result of:

  • Content hidden away and all over the place
  • A lack of clearly defined workflow
  • Delays in getting content
  • Uncertainty of who is responsible, and for what

As a website content production and workflow platform, GatherContent offers the tools to help you solve these problems. You can feel confident that content is planned properly upfront and everyone is clear on what their responsibilities are to support the process.

Use GatherContent to stop content production being a project bottleneck

Content isn’t centralised in one place

It’s easy for content to get lost in people’s inboxes, multiple shared folders or spreadsheets. Without one place to plan and produce content:

    There is no clear view of content, versions, progress and responsibility:

  • Content quality is compromised
  • Time is wasted looking for content
  • Content stored offline can be lost
  • Content tasks slip down the to-do lists

There are no clearly defined roles and responsibilities

Once your content is in one place and structured, it can be assigned to the relevant authors and moved into production.

Centralising production results in:

  • Better collaboration across the team
  • Invite people to specific pages so they only focus on what they need to write
  • Clear production timelines and responsibilities
  • All revisions and comments in one place

Adding clarity and accountability to the roles and responsibilities of content production makes it a more efficient process with less back and forth between revisions. Saving time is a big benefit by our customers, along with:

  • Launching projects on schedule
  • Reducing unexpected billable hours
  • Reducing the impact on other projects/priorities
  • Streamlining content development workflow
