UIE Virtual Seminar Presentation (How does this work?)
Editor and Content Strategist, MailChimpLength: 90 minutes
The organizational content we’re creating for the web is too often formal, lacking emotion. Writing content for humans is challenging, and doing it while articulating your organization's personality is even more difficult.
MailChimp is one company that’s successfully established a brand voice—and is still working to keep it. As a result, they’ve become known for their punchy, honest messaging that builds trust with users and makes them smile, too.
Hear from Kate Kiefer Lee—the woman behind MailChimp's interactive style guide at VoiceandTone.com—about how to establish voice guidelines that inspire your writers' creativity.
She'll share real-life examples of empathetic writing and talk about the importance of establishing content standards that make corporate writing fun.
You'll create content that your users love to read.
You'll hear how tone and voice are related (and how they're different, too).
You'll answer users' questions with genuine content.
You set standards for content creators and teach your organization's brand voice.
If you want to maintain a consistent tone in your content while putting readers first,
then sign up for Kate’s seminar today.
OK, so if you love super boring presenters, you probably won't enjoy Kate Kiefer Lee. After all, her energy and sense of humor already can be gleaned from the MailChimp copy so many of us have come to enjoy reading.
She works with creative, marketing, and editorial teams to find the customer and company stories that need telling—then writes them for human readability. As a result, she's become a leading authority in helping organizations establish style or writing guides that are empathetic and realistic.
Before MailChimp, Kate worked as a magazine editor in Atlanta, where she lives with “giant dog and average-sized husband.” Find more about Kate on Twitter @katekiefer.
The UIE Virtual Seminars I’ve viewed have been great. Accessible format, informal delivery and excellent content. I’ve always liked UIE’s approach to and delivery of user experience research.
