Free webinar from #CopyCon18 sponsor GatherContent

GatherContent is sponsoring this year’s Copywriting Conference – and to celebrate our partnership we’re offering a free webinar.

Hosted by content strategist Ellen de Vries, the webinar offers to teach you how to create a content brief for any occasion.

When: Tuesday 19 June | 16:00 – 17:30 (BST)

Where: Online – register here


Here’s how Ellen describes this talk:

When you’re asked to create a piece of content, do you feel well-equipped to be able to carry out the task? Or maybe you’re responsible for a piece of content but you’re not the creator, how do you communicate your vision to the ones who will bring it to life?

Alas, since the beginning of time, writers, artists and other creatives have relied on telepathy, hearsay and osmosis to carry out commissions, sometimes with unfortunate results. Let’s not do that.

The aim of the game is to avoid misinterpretation, wasted effort, wasted budget and prevent your project grinding to a halt. Working as a team to construct a clear content brief can help you establish shared understanding and fill the room with inspiration before you start.

In this webinar, Ellen de Vries gives you a box of colourful building blocks to help you construct a clear content brief for a variety of content types.

About GatherContent

We’re delighted that GatherContent are sponsoring this year’s event, because they make software that makes life easier for copywriters, content strategists, and anyone that manages large web copy projects. If you’ve ever written copy for large websites, you’ll have experienced the frustration that can arise when you have hundreds of documents flying around through email chains and project management tools. GatherContent does away with all that nonsense, and makes it easier to work with expert reviewers, editors and the developers who need the finished copy.
