How to Win Over Peers and Influence People: The Art and Science of Marketing (LibraryWorks Webinar)

How to Win Over Peers and Influence People: The Art and Science of Marketing (LibraryWorks Webinar) Online

The Massachusetts Library System is pleased to announce that we are working with LibraryWorks to provide our members with access to their webinars.  These webinars are free to Massachusetts library workers who register through our calendar. 

You’ve segmented your target audiences and outlined your projects. You’ve chosen your overall strategies, set quantifiable goals, and determined specific tactics. Now it’s time for the vital step of writing messages that your targets will respond to. During this deep dive into wordsmithery, you’ll learn how to combine the art of language and the science of psychology to craft effective marketing communications. But this session will not be dry—expect interaction and laughter! We’ll include writing practice and evaluation (but no sentence diagramming, promise!). 

With the knowledge you gain during this session, you’ll be better prepared to create:

•    Compelling value statements
•    Media soundbites
•    Fundraising appeals
•    Brochure text
•    Elevator speeches
•    Web copy
•    Email subject lines
•    Social media posts
•    Better press releases

This fun, enlightening presentation includes individual writing practice. LEVEL: ADVANCED
