Turbocharge your content marketing with the WordPress Gutenberg Block Editor
“Content is the core to reimagining what it means to exist within the digital economy,” notes a recent IDC report. We agree. To succeed, marketers need to enable more content producers to produce more content faster, for more segments. WordPress VIP democratizes content production, helping organizations break away from the pack and win in today’s competitive landscape.
No training required
Every member of your marketing team can use the WordPress Gutenberg block editor, it’s that easy. Even new employees can be productive on day 1, building, editing, and previewing content. And because WordPress runs 43% of the world’s websites, many employees are probably already familiar with it. Its intuitive design means any marketer can be a content marketer.
“In general, we get people up to speed in about an hour or two, which is amazing. That is the beauty of WordPress.”David “Hos” Hostetter, Digital CTO, Al Jazeera Media Network
Build content faster
WordPress VIP helps you stay ahead of the game. The included WordPress Gutenberg block editor makes it easy to assemble new content combining text, photos, forms, videos, testimonials, or other pieces of content so you can build more content, faster. Non-technical staff can build entire pieces of content in minutes without asking for technical assistance.
“In the past, the staff didn’t touch the CMS. They wrote things in Word, sent it to the production team, and they put it online. With WordPress, that workflow is changing slowly and dramatically. We’ve trained many of our content creators in the CMS. And, the closer the content creators are to it, the more creatively they are able to think about it.”David Rousseau, Vice President, Kaiser Family Foundation
Make your content modular
The WordPress Gutenberg block editor is built on blocks, with each content sub-component a separate, reusable component. This flexibility, for example, means an organization can define their header style or create custom blocks for their unique content types, ensuring consistency while empowering content creators. And because blocks are modular and savable for future use, they can be reused across channels.
“With Gutenberg, we were able to publish a breaking news story in two minutes versus five minutes in Classic [WordPress]. The main reason for this is the reusable blocks which have been renamed ‘The Game Changer.’”Joel Davies, Head of Editorial Operations, News UK
Visualize your content as you go
Gutenberg helps content creators quickly visualize how their content looks in the real world. Move blocks around, change the layout of the page, and more— Gutenberg automatically adjusts the display. Once you’re done, easily preview the content on different device types.
