Content, Customers
Here’s how to see if your candidates truly have the entrepreneurial mindset to help boost your content marketing. – Content Marketing Institute
Too often, strategy projects end with waste reduction. After creating a nice automated XML-based process, waste in formatting is eliminated, and we declare victory and go home. Unfortunately, the organization is now producing irrelevant content faster, and the content organization is now positioned as only a cost center. Typically, the next step is that executive management demands additional, ongoing cost reductions rather than looking at possible quality improvements. Eliminating waste cannot be the only priority.
When I started my career in tech writing, it was the age of the writer. Tech writers tended to work independently on a single book for months at a time. Better, for many, they not only got to write the book, they got to design it and shepherd it through the publication process. At the end of the process a book arrived from the printer and you got to keep a copy — I still have several. It was, from beginning to end, your work, your product, your book.
I will appreciate if you can share the issue in your community. I hope that you enjoy the series. I will keep it evolving to make the list more meaningful in next few weeks.
Did you enjoy this issue?
