The goal of this template is to provide a basic outline for content planning for your new website. A content template is a tool that helps organize web content from the people who write it. This document will include a breakdown of all the individual chunks of content that will be appearing on your web pages.

There are four sheets to this template. Below we outline what each sheet includes.

After we understand the goal and purpose of your project, we will build a list of pages included in the website. This is called a website sitemap. A site map is like a table of contents for your website. This can include pages such as (Homepage, Contact, Services) and subpages (Our Mission, Team). For each page we will also outline the content structure (rotating banner, headline, three benefits, inquiry form).

The sitemap is a colloborative effort and can be modified and revised through client feedback. Using this outline as a guide - for each page you will provide the content you would like to see. *We've provided a sample sitemap on this template.

These are a few questions to get the appetite going. Get into the mindset of thinking about your business goals and your audience before you start writing content. Jot down quick thoughts in a notebook for each question on this sheet. We've also added questions for you to think about your product or service before you start writing.

Good writing takes research. Don’t wait for a muse or a stroke of genius. Get the facts down in all of their messy glory and then go from there.
