About me
"My mission is to guide and assist you to be able to succeed in the new era of content creation, and to enable your eCommerce business to thrive in the changing world!"
Josefine Burkhardt

I am driven by fostering my expertise in the area of content operations, management, and strategy by developing individual solutions for my clients.
Josefine Burkhadt

First of all, I truly love what I am doing. With 10+ years of experience within the eCommerce industry, it is no secret that I am a digital enthusiast who enjoys learning continuously. I see myself as an empathic listener and bridge-builder between developers and business needs. I want to see my clients realize their visions, help them grow their potential, and see the results that we can achieve together.
I have worked with retail brands like Hugo Boss and Puma on developing content management systems and processes, training stakeholders as well as managing product content to optimize digital sales on marketplaces. An example of my work with Hugo Boss was the conception, evaluation, and implementation of a Product Content Management (PCM) system, which was the pre-condition for Hugo Boss to become omnichannel. After a revision of the standard processes, together with my team, I was able to improve the provision of global, localized product copy from 45% to 99% on time.

I hold a master's degree in Leadership in digital communication from St. Gallen University. I studied innovative techniques to shape various areas of digital communication while thinking critically about digital media channels and new technologies. Since then I have practiced the efficient management of teams as well as fostering my operational expertise in the area of content management.

Let's find out how I can support you in achieving your business goals:

Product data clean-up, optimization, and enrichment

Your way to:
• Improve content accuracy
• Increase customer satisfaction
• Lower product return-rates
• Activation on all marketplaces
• Optimize data source systems
• Dynamic data taxonomies
• Headless content management
• Simplify composable experience
• Solutions for personalization  

Let's get your house into order: Identify crucial data gaps or inconsistencies and organize with me the available product master data in your source and CMS systems.

Why? To guarantee the most accurate and relevant sales content for your customers. It is the foundation for enabling greater efficiency, speed, and quality in eCommerce content creation, particularly for the successful adaption and use of AI technology.
The technical infrastructures of traditional retailers have developed differently over  past decades but all of them pursue the same targets today: Customer-centricity at the heart of all activities, to reduce the naturally grown complexity for simplified, flexible processes, which enable the establishment of reliable automation.
I observe repeatedly how the gap in perception between the internal world of product developers or brand managers diverges significantly from the online customer perspective, behavior, and needs. The bigger the company and its assortment variety per season, the more relevant the topic. Thus, the objective is to create a reliable, consumer-oriented, and industry-competitive product information database.

How? First, I will take a close look at your existing product attribute database and the resulting quality of content as well as related challenges in your shop. As a consequence, we would then identify data gaps and reveal uncovered data needs. Based on my clients' custom requirements and product assortments we will define mandatory attributes for your digital retail business and will train internal stakeholders on how to maintain product data correctly in the source in an eCommerce-relevant manner. Often, they are simply unaware of the power of their work's impact.

To get the desired results I will provide you with useful strategies for successful stakeholder management as well as best practice advice from my experience. Certainly, I will be there to support you with the realisation.

Empower and improve the efficiency of your content team, not only to save production costs but most importantly to meet internal delivery deadlines. This is your opportunity to reduce significantly the manual workload for copywriters and editors. The team will be able to focus more on the quality of their editing by training the editorial memory, instead of wasting time with creating content from scratch or searching for product information. Your adaptation of AI will enable you to use your synergies more efficiently by identifying and reusing existing content for seasonally occurring franchises. We will also find out how to ensure search engine optimization (SEO) along the way to be ranked prominently in search engines. These opportunities will not only help you comply with the rules for your own shop content but also with the differing requirements of your digital wholesale business: Meet all needs by providing content with the correct word count and bullet-points for the relevant seasonal assortment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is product content?
Product content is the text, imagery, and other product-related information that a brand or retailer provides to business partners (2B2) and or direct customers (B2C) to describe its offerings. This includes product names, prices, dimensions, descriptions, and anything else that helps customers understand the items they are viewing to make a purchasing decision. The three pillars of product content are:
• Product data & attributes  
• Product copy & translation
• Product & on-model imagery

What is Product Content Management?
The term Product Content Management (PCM) is often used as a synonym for Product Information Management (PIM). PCM is a database application that uses product-related information of a company to centralize, manage, synchronize, enrich, and provide it to various media channels and systems. When it comes to customer-focused product communication and marketing services PCM plays an elementary role in companies today and is the ultimate starting point for a successful omni-channel business.

Why are complete, consistent, and relevant product data repositories crucial for the long-term success of your eCommerce business?
Master data gaps, inconsistency, and incorrect maintenance of attribute values in source systems can lead to poor shop content quality, which can result in:
1. Fewer product sales
2. Lower page traffic
3. Poor shop discoverability
4. Higher return rates due to wrong or missing product information
3. Disables a product from going live at all (Despite being in stock in the warehouse, until the season expires)

Where does product data generally flow to on product detail pages (PDPs)?
• Product title
• Product descriptions
• Detail bullet points
• Material compositions
• Care instructions
• Product measurements for size charts
• Color descriptions
• Product sizes and fit
• Fit-finder
• Prices
• PLP-sticker for special callouts (e.g. sustainability, personalization, online-exclusive etc.)
• Collaboration partner callouts & logos
