With the internet providing the most powerful means of distribution, design has become the most effective mean of differentiation.
There are billions of pages on the internet. To do better than your competitors, you simply need smarter content.
Smart content is usable. It doesn’t only provide the information people need but makes that information easy to access, understand, and act upon. It has audience-appropriate terminology and literacy level, clear and consistent formatting and presentation.
In this course, we will walk, hand in hand, with your team members on a journey
towards creating smart content by finding the words that will help them achieve
professional objectives. Finding the words, that your clients use and understand.
