How can you get the most from your content audit? Content Insight CEO Paula Land authored our on-going series on taking content inventories to the next level with specialized audit. These articles will help you build your inventory template, interpret analytics and connect with your audiences through personas. Paula outlines how qualitative audits can guide discovery based on context and unique-to-you categories. Finish it all by checking out the competition in a competitive audit.
In Content Knowledge is Power, Sara Wachter-Boettcher argues that to truly address responsive design and device-ready content, you first need to understand what you have now. Deal with legacy content assets first, she advises, and you’ll have better navigation systems as well as access for search engines and site visitors. Concrete how-to advice is a @sara_ann_marie standard. (That’s why we’re raffling her book Content Everywhere in our giveaway.)
