Writing for the Web – Smarter, better, faster, stronger

Writing for the Web

Presentation by Kelly Thibodeau

Is your web copy killing your customers? Are they left to fend for themselves, lost and alone in a tangled jungle of meaningless words, a sea of senseless categories and twisted paths of never-ending links?

This workshop will teach you how to write headlines that grab attention, paragraphs that won’t put you to sleep, and links that don’t send your customers around in circles (or worse yet, to the competition).

Untwist the tangled mess and tame the beast! Learn how to look at your website with new eyes—your customers’ eyes. Empower them. Engage them. Keep them coming back for more.

Want to create awesome websites that work? Then you will want to attend this event! Please join us for an informative and entertaining look at how we can improve our websites. We look forward to seeing you there!
