Content in a Zombie Apocalypse

Karen McGrane

About this video


A zombie apocalypse is upon us: an onslaught of new mobile devices, platforms and screen sizes, hordes of them descending every day. There aren't enough designers and developers to battle every platform. There aren't enough editors and writers to populate every screen size. But surviving the apocalypse is possible. Karen McGrane explains how: By developing a content strategy that treats all our platforms as if they're equally important.
