Content management

Introduction

Do you have a website that has become disorganised and confusing to navigate? Do you need to update existing content, or add new content sections to your site?

Perhaps you need help understanding how to structure content in sections in your site. This is known as information architecture. This structure has a significant impact on the user experience and search engine optimisation.

Professional writing, editing and content management skills are required to maintain the expert voice of your organisation as it is expressed through your website.

I am an experienced writer and editor and have completed projects from corporate annual reports to academic monographs and journals. I can apply these skills to your digital as well as your print publications.

These are the services I can provide:

Writing and editing

  • Editing and updating existing content
  • Writer / journalist / academic author
  • Copy and structural editing.

Media content

  • Adding images to your site to improve its appeal
  • Preparing documents designed to be downloaded
  • Publishing videos in YouTube and embedding them in your website
  • Publishing audio files like podcasts online and promoting them.

Information architecture

Marketing

Many organisations don’t know how to best spend a limited budget on digital content management. Compensating for a poorly built website with online advertising can be expensive and may fail to achieve results. The correct solution is to implement technical SEO best practice to ensure Google wants to index your site organically.

Rescuing neglected or broken sites

One of the tasks I am regularly employed to do is to rescue neglected or broken websites. Has your content manager or website administrator left your organisation without leaving adequate documentation?

I can help you recover by reverse engineering your content management system and other platforms so you can regain control and continue to publish your content.

Has your WordPress site been ‘hacked’ (most often due to poor password security)?

What is often missing in organisations small or large is a professional approach to website governance and record-keeping, from passwords to website user manuals. I can train your staff to better manage their digital assets and prevent problems from recurring.
