Creative Content Foundations interest list

There’s a double-edged sword that can either help us create remarkably robust content — or stop it in its tracks.

It’s technology-assisted strategy. Now, don’t get me wrong, the strategic and analytical tools available today are amazing. We just need to make sure they’re serving us, and not the other way around.

In this 18-minute episode, I talk about:

  • Two ways of thinking about strategy that can both mess you up
  • How analytical and strategic tools can help us serve our audiences better
  • What companies can do to be smarter about how they’re using content strategy tech
  • What writers can do to be part of smarter content organizations
