Strategy Development

Extend the life of your content from one-time use to multi-use


Content should play a key role in your overall marketing and community engagement strategy. From brand awareness to advocacy to conversion, content is a powerful tool with multi-faceted impact. It’s also something you can do with little to no budget—though it does require a time commitment.

In this course, we’ll explore all parts of content strategy, including where you can optimize and expand your current content strategy (even if it’s from scratch), how to use different types of content to meet organizational goals, tracking and analytics, new tools and channels you can leverage, and how to extend the life of your content to reach a variety of online audiences.


This course was previously titled Intro to Content Strategy.
