Content strategy comes with scary challenges. The undead creatures in the content strategy world come in five classes.
- Zombies: resistance to change and comfort in monotony.
- Vampires: charismatic and feed off others for personal gain.
- Mummies: sleeping guardians that awaken when they perceive a threat to their charge.
- Frankenstein’s creature: a patched-together mess of a solution—extremely unwieldy without constant attention and care.
- Ghosts: the fears and regrets that haunt us.
