Content entry phase in website project Jul 15, 14, 10:02 a.m.
This has been an ongoing problem for my company for as long as I can remember and is only getting worse as the sites we build becoming more complex.
What I'm talking about is the process of adding content (text, images, video, forms, other conversion tools) to a new website. I feel like this phase is largely regarded as inconsequential by most because it's the most tedious and least sexy.
Practically speaking though, especially with the sites we build, it's very, very important. Many of our clients sell experiences (travel and hospitality for example) and a big part of the website is to persuade people to visit. The most effective tools to persuade are the images and their relationships to the words (how we've arranged this content on the page to quickly engage people). This is where we struggle. We don't have anyone (besides myself and a PM) that can look at a collection of photography and video, the IA and the copy and make sound decisions on how to combine that content on the page. For us, content entry requires more than just copy and pasting.
The client can't usually do it because a) they have no ability to choose good imagery (or resize and optimize images) b) they have no idea how to use a simple CMS (even after we provide instruction) c) the timelines don't allow for it normally
The developers I've worked with, though good at writing code, are generally bad with words and pictures. Their poor communication skills often translates to an inability to take a bunch of text and images and arrange it on the page so it makes sense to the reader and hopefully, leads to conversions.
We've considered hiring juniors to do content entry but it's never panned out when it comes to sites with complex storytelling and functionality. They just don't have the experience or comprehension skills to effectively assemble copy and images in a sensible, engaging way.
How do you guys deal with this issue? Have you read any articles that address how to approach this problem?
TL;DR: Content entry is a bitch and we need help developing a better process.
