5 Key GatherContent Features
GatherContent offers five key features for businesses to write and edit content.
It’s easy to organize, structure, produce, manage, and migrate content all in one place.
- Organize: This is the first and most important feature. Clients import all current website content, and computer files into GatherContent. This software also creates an inventory to organize content. The inventory gives each project contributor access to it. A sitemap is also available, so you always know where each section lives on the website.
- Structure: TM creates specific templates for clients to understand how to structure content. This ensures content is well-written, appropriate for their website, and ready for publishing. Templates are great to adhere to an established timeline and content requirements. You can also set word and character limits, as well as attach files.
- Produce: This is where TM’s marketing team comes into play. Our team writes, reviews, and edits the website content, depending on the project. GatherContent sends notifications to update all contributors.
- Manage: This feature creates a workflow chart to show all timelines and responsibilities. TM updates contributors’ assignments and can update clients on the project’s timeline progression.
- Migrate: TM migrates it into the CMS platform of choice, such as WordPress, when it’s approved – then, it’s ready to go!
How To Use GatherContent
Parts of GatherContent
- Overview: The overview project homepage shows the project status and recent activity done.
- Content: The website’s main pages are in this tab. From here, TM adds and manages content for each web page. To maintain the project timeline, TM and the client set content to a particular status and add a due date.
