Plan Before You Build: Information Architecture & Content Strategy
Featured Speaker: Jim True
If you’ve been doing websites for clients for a while, you know the hardest thing to get out of them is their CONTENT. What if you could create an information model for their business, how pertinent information can be re-used, modeled and promoted to develop a Content strategy for your clients?
We’ll be talking about:
– Custom Post Types & Custom Taxonomy and what they mean and how they can be used for your Content Model
– How to break down complicated websites into specific, connected areas of content to better organize and make it easier for your clients to input information.
A knowledge of WordPress is helpful, but the ‘data’ strategies we’ll be talking about can be utilized on other Content Management systems and in home grown database/front end systems.
We’ll also be taking ‘I’m building a website for a “some kind of business” type questions and helping you analyze the information architecture needed and come up with a content model and content strategy for that solution. Good time to workshop some of your sites.
