Getting non-specialists on board with content strategy

Explaining content strategy to diverse stakeholders.

Content strategy touches the lives, the goals and the roles of a great many individuals across an organisation. And yet many of them probably haven’t the faintest idea what a content strategy is and how it benefits them.

In this webinar recording, Tracy Playle focuses on the art of explaining content strategy to a diverse range of stakeholders, with a focus on how to gain their understanding, their appreciation, and their fullest support and advocacy for your work. Most importantly, like any good Content Strategist, the presentation takes an audience-centred approach to designing how we engage with stakeholders.

Who is the webinar recording for?

This recording is for content strategists who need to gain the support of others around their organisation in order to make advances in their role and the implementation of their content strategy. The presentation is also relevant for consultants or agency content strategists who find themselves needing to explain what a content strategy is and why it’s beneficial to a wide range of clients and client-representatives. It’s even for those who just need to find a better way to explain what content strategy is to their parents – as if they actually have a clue what you do!
