Dispelling professional invisibility: making and claiming space for content strategy

Content strategy has an invisibility problem. Let's talk about why — and what we can do about it.

About this webinar

In today's design-centric workplace, it can often feel hard to get notice — and space to work in — as a content strategist.

What PMs don't inflexibly define gets "driven" by designers while engineers swoop in with their data models and constraints and before you know it — bam, you're back to just "doing the words" again.

Words that, naturally, "nobody reads."

And fighting tooth and nail for every syllable of that. In fact, if you've been in the industry a few years, I'm betting you've been left off of more than your fair share of:

  • Meeting invites
  • Slide deck covers
  • OKR trackers
  • Thank you lists

Or had to explain to a coworker what it is you even do here, for the dozenth time this month, like some desperate customer rep in Office Space.

But it doesn't have to be this way. Let's talk about how we get to a better place.

What will I learn?

Join in to learn about:

  • Content strategy's invisibility problem and some of its causes
  • Other working models for content-design collaboration
  • Ways to make and claim space for content strategy — and prove its value
