Does your website meet your users' needs?

Chances are, everyone at your organization has an opinion about your website content. But what about your target audience? Does your website meet your users' needs, or are they bogged down in long paragraphs and unnecessary jargon?

Guest speaker Amy Sarah Marshall, online content and SEO strategist at the University of Virginia Health System, will cover:

  • Why online, especially mobile, users differ from print
  • Chunking, chopping and bullets: cutting your content in half without losing meaning
  • Creating links that help your user and boost SEO
  • Tips for getting your content approved by your editors
