The Art and Science of Marketing Communications

Thursday, November 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

You’ve segmented your target audiences and outlined your projects. You’ve chosen your overall strategies, set quantifiable goals, and determined specific tactics. Now it’s time for the vital step of writing messages that your targets will respond to.

During this deep dive into wordsmithery, you’ll learn how to combine the art of language and the science of psychology to craft effective marketing communications. But this session will not be dry—expect interaction and laughter! We’ll include writing practice and evaluation (but no sentence diagramming, promise!).

With the knowledge you gain during this session, you’ll be better prepared to create:

• Compelling value statements
• Media soundbites
• Fundraising appeals
• Brochure text
• Elevator speeches
• Web copy
• Email subject lines
• Social media posts
• Better press releases

This fun, enlightening presentation includes audience interaction, critical thinking and message assessment, and individual writing practice.
