What does the reader want?
They want easy reading and the necessary information.
How does the writer make that happen?
We need to know more about the reader and their reading process.
Research shows the less work audiences need to put into reading, the more they will find sources credible, and the better they will connect with the messages.
In this 90-minute interactive webinar, you will learn the most up-to-date techniques, drawn from neuroscience and cognitive psychology, to:
· simplify your writing
· engage readers
· get your message across
We’ll discuss evidence and best practices in:
· the three-stage reading process
· improving recall
· content framework
· making connections
· priming and recency
· inferences and predictions
