Monthly Method Spotlight: Content Inventory

Content Inventory

pencil and paperWhen/why: This method is a great way to start and organize projects by doing an inventory of all the content involved, so you know what you’re working with. Content inventory is a commonly used method for website reorganization and redesign. It can also be used for projects that involve products or physical objects.

How: Use a spreadsheet or pen & paper and list all the content on the website (pages, files, etc.) along with its corresponding URLs or website addresses.

Tips: Depending on what you’re doing on a content inventory on, for example, the website may be huge and contain many sections. You can divide up the sections and each team member can do a content inventory of a section. Also, keep in mind that you don’t have to do the entire content inventory in one sitting.
