Documentation is how marketers will understand whether or not they’re getting the desired results from their efforts and guide to make changes to their marketing strategy as required. Part of what makes a documented strategy so powerful is that every team member from content creators to senior-level directors and everyone in between can see the process of achieving the documented strategy goals process. Distribution plan should be a part of the documented strategy also, since knowing where and how you plan to distribute your content informs the type of content you create, how often you do it, and which processes you will be utilizing it for.
