Basic elements of the custom content order form

Let your writers know exactly what you are looking for with our short and simple custom content order form.

Let's take a look at some of the basic elements needed for all orders.

TIP: Creating a standard naming convention can help you keep this easy to read and find content quickly later. For example: November | [Product Name] | New Customer Nurturing 

You can filter your existing assignments based on part or all of this ID to see content grouped together. 

 

 

Industry and Industry Segment

Let your writers know what industry and industry segment your content should be focused on.
