Dana Sitar - How to Adjust Headlines for Context
Guest: NAIWE’s Headline Expert Dana Sitar
A single headline is not sufficient for most content in digital publishing. Readers access your content in a variety of contexts, and the headline that’s effective in one context is often less effective in another. This training shows you how to craft headlines that catch readers’ attention across platforms, including websites, social media, email, and search.
Here’s what you can expect to learn in this class:
- Why platforms matter
- How to shape headlines for various platforms
- Tools to assist in posting to various platforms
