Writing For The Web

Notes Taking

Great websites aren’t just well-designed, they’re well written, too – we’ll show you how

From the Top

A good website is deceptively simple. It’s easy to find your way around and the words are warm, welcoming and easy to read. Good website design is usually best left to the experts, but even they can’t always help with the content – the words or ‘copy’; that’s usually the client’s job. If you are responsible for providing website content for your business or organisation, do you feel confident about it and understand fully what’s involved? It’s not like writing for brochures and newsletters, for instance.

Writing For The Web

There are some special issues that affect the way we write for the web. Sometimes copy has to be written for SEO – Search Engine Optimisation – and if it’s not done well it can make what the visitor to your website reads seem stilted and artificial – and off-putting. Writing for SEO means including key words that are important if search engines like Google are to find your website easily and rank it as high as possible. That means people looking for what you’re offering find you before they find your competitors.

Today it is also a legal requirement that a website complies with accessibility standards for people with disabilities and this may affect what is written on the site. This workshop is for anyone who writes text for their organisation’s website or who commissions web editors or copywriters and needs to understand both what they should do and why they should do it. We will give you the skills and the confidence you need to start writing clearly and concisely, to encourage people to linger on your web pages – to make the pages ‘sticky’.
