    Content Strategy

    I can get your team started with content strategy, from identifying roles and responsibilities and setting content objectives and metrics to establishing successful publishing plans—all while keeping your audience, business goals, and resource constraints in mind.

    Strategic Message Architecture

    Whether you’re establishing new social channels, assigning web maintenance to multiple teams, or simply training your customer service staff, your organization needs to speak with a single voice—one that’s true to your brand and right for your customers. I’ll facilitate workshops that help your team identify and rally around the right brand messages, voice, and communication goals. As a result, you’ll have increased buy-in from stakeholders and be able to increase the quality, consistency, and authenticity of all your content.

    Cross-Channel & Mobile Content Design

    Managing more and more discrete content for different devices? Working on a responsive web design and not sure how content plays a role? Looking under the hood of your CMS and realizing 90% of what you have can’t be extracted for your mobile site? I can help you understand how to design structures, relationships, and rules that make your content ready for mobile and more.
