CT UXPA September Event: Kath Straub on Creating Content in Plain Language
You've done all your user research, created wireframes, tested and iterated the mockups until they were perfect. But suddenly when your project goes live the user experience that seemed perfect in mockups is not so perfect anymore. What happened? The only thing that changed from the mockups was... the content!
At the CT UXPA September meeting learn how to help your users find what they need on your site, understand it and use it to meet their goals. Kath Straub will also show us how truly effective content sets up a dialog with users.
