Finding the words
Site structure, searchability and design are important, but without words there is no reason to visit a site - let alone return.
Just because we have moved from pen and paper to keyboard and screen doesn't make the task of communicating clearly through writing easier. Don't worry though - we're here to help. Web content services offers free tools and services to help you.
If a website were a car, we provide you with everything you need, except the gas - the content; that's up to you! You know your audiences best and what they want to hear from you!
We can help you think through your web strategy and where this fits in your media choices and how best to communicate your messages.
Assuming you know what kind of webpage you want, and are a student, staff or faculty member, we can help. Follow our step-by-step guide for creating a website.
Once you know what you are going to say, here's a step-by-step guide to get started:
