- In creating this content, I was trying to find…a visual aid that would help make sense of the process…of building a content strategy for a project.…The most obvious solution was some sort of circle…or circular track with multiple lanes,…but that didn't really convey the message the right way.…In the end, I settled on a rolling ball…comprising multiple layers.…I call this the ball of content strategy,…and it illustrates in a practical way the most important…notion I want to convey on this topic.…Content strategy is a holistic endeavor.…
