Content Modeling for Better User Experiences Everywhere Workshop @ BLANKSPACES LA
Jul 20 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Content Modeling for Better User Experiences Everywhere Workshop @ BLANKSPACES LA

Hey, you’re beautiful! You should do some modeling — content
modeling, that is. To understand your content and prepare it for every
design, content modeling is key. Learn how in this workshop with
Content Strategy Southern California and the Los Angeles User
Experience Meetup Group. Register today! A delightful dinner from
Mendocino Farms will be available.

 

Special workshop event! Made possible by the generosity of our sponsor: Vitamin T.

Ready to do some content modeling? Ready to prepare your copy and media for a content management system? Ready to create compelling visual presentations of your content experience, structure, or workflow?

Get hands-on experience with creating a content model for your business and designs in this workshop. Marlowe Beckley, Senior Manager, Content Strategy at SapientNitro, guides us into the details, dirt, and power of content modeling.

Explore answers to questions such as these:

  • I have a sitemap. Isn’t that a good enough content model?
  • How does content modeling help me create and manage copy and media in a content management system?
  • How does content modeling differ from a content inventory or audit?
  • How does content modeling help prepare content for every customer on every device?
  • How can a content model help me create a more personalized user experience?

This workshop continues where the June 9 introductory event leaves off. Register for that event on Eventbrite.

We strongly recommend that attendees to this July 20 workshop also attend the June 9 meetup.
