The terminology spans a range of competencies with the broad area of content strategy.

Inside the Book

What are They Saying?

“Love the bite-sized, organized, and consistent presentation of knowledge. This book will help anyone improve his or her content strategy.”

— Guy Kawasaki, Founder of Altop and author of APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur — How to Publish a Book

The Language of Content Strategy fills a much-needed gap in the content strategy field. Without a formal institute or organization to guide their vocabulary, content strategists often find themselves talking at cross purposes, even when talking about the same concept.”
