Marketing and Strategic Communications Writing

Persuasive writing demands more than a working knowledge of language, grammar, and paragraph construction. It requires an understanding of how individuals, businesses, and government institutions communicate to influence decision-making, including the use of three essential framework tools: clear objectives, knowledge of the target audience, and key messages. In this course, learn how to apply these tools to formats commonly used by marketing and public relations professionals, like press releases, backgrounders, biographies, position statements, ads, email newsletters, web content, blogs, and presentations. Also, analyze strategies and techniques for mastering the art of persuasion, participate in stimulating class exercises, review real-world examples, and discuss weekly writing assignments.
