Description
When it comes to writing for the Web, the first things you need to do it define what you are writing, your target audience and your purpose.
Are you writing your website navigation structure, website copy (which page) or a landing page that an online ad leads to? You could also be writing that ad, a blog post or social media copy (or a social media ad) but that goes beyond the scope of this webinar.

You also need to know who you are writing for and your purpose so that you use copy that appeals to your target audience and copy that will enable you to achieve your purpose. But all that goes out the window it you don't know how to structure your website copy so that it is easy to read. That is why

Writing for the Web introduces you to the formal writing process and demonstrates how to apply that process when writing content for the Web. The webinar

  • outlines how most people read online (they call it a “browser” for a reason)
  • presents techniques to help visitors scan and absorb Web content
  • helps you structure information-oriented and promotional Web copy
  • shows you how to motivate ‘clicks’
  • demonstrates how to use SEO to drive traffic to your website, use online ads to drive traffic to your landing page and harness the power of hyper links to motivate readers to dig deeper for more information.
