Content strategy

Training Day: How to change the world with content strategy

The training

Too often, content is thought of last. Hurried, sub-standard content can ruin a campaign. The flotsam and jetsam of abandoned microsites and neglected, out-of-date pages float in a flood of content that threatens supporters and charities. Good intentions and boundless energy are not enough; you need a content strategy.

Learn what content strategy is, how to apply it in campaigning organisations and how to convince others of its value in this fun, participative workshop.

“I’d strongly suggest everyone, campaigners and digital folks, to join this training because it will truly help you to look at content in a way you never did before.” Cristiana De Lia, campaigner
