Catch Your Readers in Dallas
Writing Workshop in Dallas
Move readers to act in this persuasive writing workshop
If you want to Catch Your Readers, you need to think like a reader. Then you need to use the bait your reader likes, not the bait you like.
Problem is, many of the techniques we’ve institutionalized in business communication writing are not the bait the reader likes. In fact, some of the standards in the corporate communicator’s repertoire are more likely to hinder than help your chances at getting the word out.
In this persuasive writing workshop, we’ll debunk destructive writing myths. You’ll leave with scientific, proven-in-the-lab approaches for getting people to pay attention to, understand, remember and act on your messages.
Specifically, you’ll learn how to:
Think Like a Reader: To move people to act, give them what they really want
Hook ‘Em With a Savvy Structure: Master a format that’s been proven in the lab to reach more readers
Cut Through the Clutter: Make every piece you write easier to read & understand
Lift Ideas Off the Page: Draw readers in and reach nonreaders with display copy
Get a Writing That Sells Workout With Wylie: Take your message from ‘meh’ to masterpiece.
