Writing Without Bullshit
Among freelancers and business employees who write as full-time professionals, a staggering 81% say that dealing with content that has been written poorly is a waste of time, money, and resources. This inefficiency is robbing you of productivity, reducing your profits, and limiting your potential client reach. In Writing Without Bullshit, Josh Bernoff helps you maximize the power of your writing and shows you how to craft content that will work in this ever-changing digital age. Learn how to say more with fewer words and purge toxic prose elements like passive voice and jargon while maintaining a bold voice in collaborative work environments.
WTF Is Your Brand Voice
Do you know what your branding voice needs to be or do you even fully understand what a branding voice is in general? Too many content teams rely on feel-good fluff-filled writing guides that barely scratch the surface and don’t deliver true meaningful content. These froo-froo guides end up leaving your branding voice open to loose interpretation, which does nothing for strengthening your voice and your reach. In WTF is Your Brand Voice? Justin Blackman discusses the power of the three key aspects of branding – Words, Tone, and Frequency. You’ll learn how to make all your content more powerful and impactful by developing a brand voice that resonates with your audience.
