Have Margot teach a course
Margot can help you with
Content strategy advocacy
I help in-house marketing departments talk with their internal clients, collaborators, and stakeholders about the value of content strategy. I’ll review your existing workflow and creative processes to determine points of inclusion and opportunities to improve timing, budget use, and project success rates, then help you pitch the value of content strategy to collaborators in design, marketing, user experience, project management, CMS integration. Everyone wins with a better process.
Message architecture development
I work with key stakeholders and C-level executives to rally them around a unified vision and hierarchy of communication goals for a project, service, or corporate overhaul. I’ll facilitate your team through an activity designed to get everyone on the same page and determine what’s most important to communicate–then we’ll be able to prioritize the content types, channel investments, and editorial style to achieve that vision.
