What does a Content Developer do?

Content specialists create content for digital sites and social media platforms using background research they perform as needed. They create content strategies, research trending topics, and write content for the corporations, companies, and entities where they work. Content specialists work closely with other members of a team, which might include writers, designers, and managers. Many content specialists work in online or digital mediums, but some work in the print field.

Content specialists follow a brand and its style guidelines, and they adhere to a company or project’s submission deadlines. They may also be called upon to monitor website traffic or make sure a site is working properly and to respond to any and all relevant website feedback.

Some have voluntary certification through a software manufacturer or the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM).
