The EASY Content Framework

๐Ÿ‘€ย Sponsor this spot to share your content with our community.

Your content framework is the collection of ideas, information, and principles you and your team use to plan, align, hold each other accountable, provide feedback, and create consistency across your brand.

Use the EASY framework to guide your blog posts, guides, ebooks, videos, or landing pages.

  1. Be an Expert.ย Rely on your expertise or your SMEs to illuminate the topic, anticipating and answering the questions your audience will have with specific language. Don’t make readers go looking for more information.
  2. Make it Actionable.ย Give your content a high level of practical utility in order to enable your audience to achieve something valuable to them. Spell out the how.
  3. Keep it Simple. You know this one. Cut out unnecessary jargon, idioms, and tangents. Respect your audienceโ€”don’t talk down to them, but be clear. It’s a tricky balance.
  4. Make it Yours.ย Content that feels authentic to the author or brand creates unique value and builds a connection with readers. In a landscape auto-populated with bland AI writing, what can only you say?

Check out the framework over at Content Folks.

American Girl

A scholarly serif font. Warm campaign photos of happy little girls. This isn’t creative from American Girl circa 1996. But it could be.

American Girl Refresh

The powerhouse legacy doll brand remembered fondly by ~people in their 30s~ is resurrecting its brand essence with a classic-inspired typeface, color palette, wordmark, and suite of graphics. And we’re so here for it.

After all, girlhood is a intergenerational language.
