Program of the writing for the web course

We personalize the training program to fit the needs of your organization.

Because an online shop does not have the same goals as a non-profit or government website.

We know this because we’ve been helping organizations and companies in all kinds of industries to improve their website since 2001.

  • What is the main goal of this course for you?
  • What is less relevant for you?
  • What should we pay more attention to?

We use the basic program as our starting point, and we fine-tune it to suit your needs.

We go through the program together during a web call. We’re eager to hear from the participants too. A week before the workshop we like to send them a brief online survey, asking about their questions and expectations for the seminar. Of course, we leave room for extra questions during the workshop as well.

To give you an idea: the basic program

  • Discover why writing for the web is different
  • Focus on your page’s target and target audience
  • Find out what kind of headers and intros work
  • Structure pages in terms of both content and layout
  • Use links in a useful way
  • Keep it simple
  • Find out when images are useful and when they’re not
  • Seduce your reader with psychological tricks
  • Search engine optimization (SEO): optimize your pages for Google

Theory, examples and practice

  • Theory
    A little bit of theory is necessary to explain why you should write a certain way on the web.

    We make the theory come alive with results from user research and A/B testing. From our own team or from other experts in our field.

    And of course we immediately illustrate the theory with examples.
     
  • Examples
    Ah, I see. Oh right, now I get it. Really? Wow.

    Those are the sounds we normally hear when we give examples, because they make the theory tangible.

    We use examples to discuss what works and what doesn’t work. And of course we use as many examples from your website or industry as possible.
     
  • Practice
    Time to get stuck in!

    We like to get down and dirty with your web copy during the workshop itself. That way, you really get a hang of this writing for the web thing. And you immediately get results.

 

What do participants say about this course?

“Thanks to AGConsult’s writing for the web seminars, our entire team now gets what does and doesn’t work online.”

Jan Govaerts, Communication officer, City of Turnhout

 

“The theory immediately confronted us with our mistakes. It was clear from the beginning that the workshop had been thoroughly prepared. After feeling pretty stupid for 8 hours, we concluded the day with material that we could instantly put online. And the knowledge that we will definitely improve our website. Hats off!”

Piet De Pauw, Digital Marketing Coordinator, Enfocus

 

“The practical examples that make the participants think and discuss how writing for the web really works, they’re a huge plus.”

Ellen Coopman, Communication, Red Cross Flanders
