Digital Writing Skills

The language we use, whether written or verbal, must communicate the message effectively. Any piece of digital content should engage the audience from the beginning to ensure the message is delivered and the goal of the message is met for whichever purpose. 

Delegates will refresh their knowledge and application of some basic rules of language. They will learn best practice tips for writing digital content when used as part of a communication campaign such as blog posts, product information, instructional guides, social status updates, responding to comments and spoken communication. 

Delegates will work through five key elements to writing effective online content.  These elements will help them engage the reader through storytelling, personality, planning, structure, and adapting language style for any digital content in their campaigns. 

They will apply these steps to their own campaign project; feedback will be provided through out from the course facilitator and from course colleagues.

At the same time, L&D Leaders must speak the language of business and report results that actually matter to senior managers e.g. performance improvements; sustained increases in sales; higher levels of customer satisfaction; lower attrition/sickness/complaints, avoiding falling into the trap of reporting mere ‘bums on seats’ and fill rates!
