This content operations template will help you organize, streamline, and accelerate your organization’s creative output.
We have a step-by-step guide that will show you how to:
Step 1: Collect content briefs
When creative assets are required, the requestor answers questions listed on the template’s request form. These include: what is the project description? What type of content is being requested? Who is the target persona? When is it due? When it’s completed, they’ll submit the request form to the marketing project manager or traffic manager.
Step 2: Organize intake
The request form will come in via your intake folder. Take a look at the details and ensure all the necessary information has been provided for your team to start the task. Cross-tag the request and add it to the relevant folder or folders.
Now, you must check if your team has the capacity to complete the task. Consult your team’s tasks to see who has the most bandwidth and assign your task accordingly. Want more visibility on your project timeline? Switch from Table view to Gantt chart. Drag and drop tasks, add dependencies, and move milestones with a single click.
Step 3: Kickstart workflow
Remove the project from your intake folder to initiate the next stage of content operations. You can tweak the settings so this action triggers a status change (e.g., move to “Content Review” or “In Revisions”).
Use the customizable workflow to update task statuses and track progress. Get a bird’s-eye view of your projects with an easy-to-configure Gantt chart. Create individual folders and subfolders for each task to eliminate confusion once and for all.
Step 4: Manage approvals
It’s important to keep track of your creative assets as they move through the various stages of development — from “In Production” to “Review” to “Completed.” View this information at a glance with Wrike’s custom dashboards so you can update clients instantly.
