Content requests

Streamline the process for submitting, triaging, and completing new content requests from your team.

Writing and working on content requests requires focus — but when you’re receiving scattered new requests and scrambling to track down key information, it’s a struggle.

With the content requests template, you create an established process for receiving, prioritizing, and executing on new content requests — so you can control your inbox and manage writing projects accordingly.

Height’s content requests template lets you customize and simplify the process of receiving asks, and see content projects and their status at-a-glance.

Here’s how:

  • Gather all the information you’ll need included in one consolidated spot by creating a task form
  • Assign all incoming content requests to the right team member and sort into different status categories for a visual overview of work
  • Prioritize and manage content asks and see their status at a glance

What are content requests?

Content requests are asks for new pieces of written content, including blog posts, website content, email copy, social media posts, and more. Stakeholders across different teams, such as advertising, product marketing, and more request deliverables from content and marketing teams to support campaigns and initiatives.

Once you receive a content request (with key details about the ask), you’ll need to write the content, receive feedback, revise, and keep track of the project’s status. But the entire process from start to finish is streamlined with a content requests template.

Who is this content requests template for?

This content requests template is meant for content strategists, copywriters, content marketers, and marketing teams to receive new requests, manage projects, and stay organized. The template will work for teams of any size.

How do I manage content requests more effectively?

Managing content requests more effectively starts with creating a simplified workflow and sharing it with all teams who’ll be requesting work. When everyone knows how the process works, you’ll spend less time chasing down details and fielding requests — so you can focus on the writing and content strategy that matters.

Here are the three steps to more effectively manage new work requests, using Height’s content requests template:

  1. Collect key information about new requests with a customizable form.

First, you’ll want to set up a clear and simple way for your team members to submit new content requests. The best way to do this is with Height’s task form feature, which will automatically create a new task for you whenever the form is submitted. That new task will feature the kind of work being requested, a description of context around the ask, the request type, priority level, and any known due date. You can also fully customize the form as you see fit.

  1. Stay organized by sorting projects into types and statuses.

Within the content requests template, you can visually sort all work and requests into status-based categories, including: inbox, more information needed, in progress, in review, done, and won’t do. Get an overhead view of work and project statuses, then filter further by priority and more.

  1. Receive feedback and discuss content and changes in one spot.

If you have follow-up questions before diving in to work on a content request, house those conversations right within the task created by the form submission — and since you’ll be able to see who submitted the ask, you’ll know exactly who to follow up with. When you’re finished, ping key players for feedback right within the same task with all previous context right there.

You can even integrate tools you’re already using in the content process, like Notion and Slab, so viewing your work and collecting feedback is easier than ever.
