A strong content analyst should have a broad range of skills, including content auditing, data analysis, KPI goal setting, analytics dashboard creation, and more.

Content analysts should know how the content creation and product/web design and development process works and must understand how to analyze user and content data to both inform strategy and make continuous improvements.

Content analysts assemble a system of content intelligence that enables organizations to make smarter decisions about content.
