A Peer2Peer webinar for Communications and Marketing Professionals
In this busy world and crowded digital landscape, how do you create a story site that will actually be effective? You can have the best content in the world, but if nobody sees it, it doesn’t really matter. And even if they see it, you could have the most amazing stories, but if your pages aren’t engaging, nobody will scroll and read it all. Come learn how World Vision built an award-winning story site that gets around 4 million pageviews every year and the best practices they learned that can help you build and improve your own story site, regardless of your staff size or budget.
What you will learn:
– How to decide what pieces of content to create
– How to build an annual content calendar so you have more time and clarity to create
– How to work with the resources you have to make your pages more engaging
– Be inspired by some really beautiful stories we’ve created
