SharePoint 2010, Office 365: An Example Intranet Site for a Marketing Department – Part 1

In this blog post I wanted to cover some of the basic options you have for working with different types of content on your SharePoint site. The example solution that I will be covering is a Marketing Intranet site that contains shared files that can be used and accessed by internal employees. Basically the site is a repository of content that users access as needed. Here is a screenshot of the solution home page.


The solution includes several main components, including:

  • A place to store the approved marketing images. These are the images that have been approved and tested and can be used in materials created by internal employees.
  • A place to the store the approved PowerPoint slides. These are the common boiler plate slides that everyone should be using in their presentations.
  • A place to access the latest marketing brochures.
  • A place to discuss marketing initiatives with the team.
  • A place to showcase the latest marketing video.

In this series I am going to create a post that covers each of the items referenced above and then a closing post that discusses some tips for site design and layout. The purpose of this series is to spark some ideas of different ways that you can organize and store different types of content. All the solutions I will be presenting are out of the box items. I find that these features are often overlooked, so I think it is very important to cover them in detail so that everyone is aware of the different things that can be done out of the box.

As I complete the additional items in the series I will be sure to update the links in the table below so that they are easily accessible from one location. If all goes well, I hope to have this series completed in the next week or so.
