Job Description for Content Strategist
Content strategists typically develop a plan for content and oversee how that plan is carried out. Because content strategists are responsible for creating a unified message for their organization, they must be able to work well with others to determine their company's - and individual departments' - needs. A typical day for a content strategist includes meetings with a work team to discuss ongoing and upcoming projects, outlining new content to run in the future, and working with a designer to discuss visual elements to accompany written content. Content strategists often work closely with social media strategists, marketing professionals, designers, and typesetters to create a cohesive message; these job roles may overlap, emphasizing the importance of strong communication skills in this position.
