“I love reading super-dense copy, written in 10-point type, with 0.5-inch margins” SAID NO ONE EVER. And by no one, I mean your evaluators. In this session, we’ll talk about how to create proposal content that’s easy to read and evaluate. We’ll discuss how to:
- Measure the readability of your copy
- Break content into easily digestible “chunks”
- Slim down sentences and paragraphs
- Create content that evaluators read faster, understand better, and remember longer.
