Content Migration Strategy: A Tale of Two Websites

Content Migration Strategy: A Tale of Two Websites

When designing and building a website, too often companies deprioritize content. So it's no surprise that a top reason why site launches are delayed is because content is not ready.

What does it look like for content to go from an afterthought to a requirement? And, what happens during a website migration when developers, desginers, and content strategists collaborate effectively?

We'll examine these questions through two very different content migrations. First, a regional utility company, redesigning their digital experience - who course-corrected the project by bringing in content support mid-process. Second, a global roofing company, uniting 300+ microsites in 36 countries, who prioritized content up front.

A version of this talk will be presented in late 2019 at the Content Strategy Philly meetup.
