Let your  content

engage your audience

with a story

Hi,

Chloe Barker Content is critical to good user experience. Users read it, share it, talk about it, and contribute to it.

I am a strategic thinker, senior copywriter, trained Times journalist and content and social media strategist. I have excellent people management skills and am a first-class communicator with fourteen years experience working across a plethora of brands and websites with the ability to influence leadership and drive change.

Over the past five years I have specialised in Content Strategy and UX. For me this entails really getting under the skin of content and understanding audience needs. After all, a brand is nothing without its content, so making the most of content is critical to every brand's success.

I do this by reviewing current content, writing governance and content strategy guidelines, or tone of voice and social media recommendations, as well as holding writing workshops for my clients.

Content Strategy

Essential to good user experience, content strategy defines what content exists and the way in which your audience engages with it across different platforms, including social media.

Stakeholder interviews

In order to be able to talk to your audience, it is essential that we first understand its needs and requirements.

Tone of voice

Tone of voice refers to the style in which copy is written. It is one of the major components of a brand’s personality.

Content analysis

Audit your web content to find out what content you have, how effective it is, and what’s missing.

SEO and Taxonomy

Putting the right keywords on your website, intranet or campaign is essential so that Google can actually find your site.

Copywriting

Get your message out – in clear English. Ensure your content grips your audience, reflects your brand, is direct and to the point.

Social media conversation calendar

Provides a monthly snapshot of events across Social Media for the year ahead for the Community Managers and advise on how to do so.

Governance

Governance addresses the following 3 questions:
1. What decisions must be made to ensure effective management?
2. Who makes these decisions?
3. How are these decisions made and monitored?
