5 Sites for Content Strategy (and a Bonus Pie Chart)
User experience, visual design, content management systems, information architecture. All key elements of any successful web experience. But these experiences are built so that users can consume the content within them. And that’s where content strategy – one of today’s hottest interactive disciplines - comes in. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we approach content strategy in terms of message, structure and words; and there are a lot of great resources out there that can help you make sense of content strategy even further. Here I’ve compiled here a list of highly notable content-focused sites.
Peruse and enjoy.
