The content that makes content leaders tick

Amy Cuevas Schroeder

Amy Cuevas Schroeder

Once upon a time, content took a backseat to product design, development, and marketing. Now, more organizations are taking a collaborative approach to experience design, where content creators collaborate with designers and researchers at the earliest stages of a product so that the words they write inform the design (as opposed to just filling up the space).

This is not to say that design, user experience, research, and engineering should become the new afterthoughts. Far from it — all of the above must work hand in hand to make sure that people get the content they need, when they need it.

The field of content strategy has come a long way in the last decade, and it’ll continue to evolve. Content leaders’ areas of expertise range from content design and design systems to content marketing and storytelling, and so much more. 

As the content industry grows, so too has the amount of educational content for the content strategy community. Here are some of the favorite sources of info from content leaders at Twitter, Intuit, and UiPath, all of whom are Writer customers.
