As Web readers become more and more difficult to attract — and keep — on your website, how can today’s Web editors ensure that their digital content engages online audiences? Effective Web editing comes down to three key strategies — understanding Web readers, knowing enough about search optimization to ensure copy is found, and making the most of social media sharing.
By the end of this one-day workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand how Web readers find, consume and share digital content
- Edit Web content according to Web editing best practices
- Optimize content for search
- Tailor and adapt print content for the Web
- Define and write microcontent
- Create shareable content
- Develop and distribute social media content
Bring a laptop, if possible, but it is not a requirement for the seminar.
Lunch is not included.
