Reel Grrls Content Strategy Report

Process
Preliminary Work

As part of analyzing the website for improvements, an inventory of the organization's website pages and its social media presences was made.

This content inventory includes a list of the Reel Grrls website’s pages, organized into categories and with alternate URLs when available. The list includes active and disused pages, and linked PDF files.

Also included in the inventory is a list of the organization’s social media channels and profiles, with number of followers and typical post frequencies. The inventory was created manually, with manual searching of pages with partial aid of a search engine.

In addition to the content inventory, a persona was created based on a group interview with someone interested in Reel Grrls. The person interviewed was a board member of the organization, and is interested in furthering its goals and mission.

The persona includes a user description, demographics, interview quote, technical/channel profile, user/audience goals, and business goals/objectives. The persona paper includes font styling elements from the website for Reel Grrls.

 


Competitive Analysis

The competitive audit/analysis compared the website for Reel Grrls to the websites for five similar organizations: Ghetto Film School, Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, Powerful Voices, Global Action Project, and TVbyGIRLS.

The audit analyzes the the six websites by using 29 relevant heuristics in 6 categories. These comparisons are organized in a spreadsheet with applicable notes. Also included in the analysis documentation are descriptions of the five other organizations with screenshots of their home pages.

Two page description diagrams were created which organize page elements based on priority to the user.

The elements are ranked by high, medium, and low priority, and include notes on the pages and their elements. The pages analyzed are the Home page and the Stay in Touch page.
