Focusing Online Content for Short Attention Spans
April 3 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Faculty: Will Schermerhorn, Owner, AtomStream Communications
Course Objective: Learn how to make sure your marketing appeals to those with the shortest attention spans online.
Short online attention spans mean every sentence–and every second–count. This workshop shows how to hook online visitors who may stay just 8 seconds. It’s not tech, design or strategy. It’s about thinking. It’s about diving to the core of communication and organization impact. That core leads to a framework for action. Attendees will learn to show impact through text and photos. They’ll answer three simple questions to define audience, context and impact. They will pump energy into limp sentences. They’ll tune reading levels to boost engagement. They’ll learn marketing missteps to avoid. The workshop reveals how to gauge progress with web analytics. They’ll leave with a nonprofit impact mind map, an analytics one-pager and tips for writing for readability.
