Be brief, be bright, be done


Articles, presentations, white papers, case studies—everyone's creating content these days, setting the bar higher for quality, meaning, and expectations. If you need help creating content for marketing, thought leadership or communicating subject matter expertise, remember FastBlurb. We'll help you clarify, streamline and hit the mark, breaking through the noise and adding value and relevance to your targeted audience.

Avoiding communication mistakes

  • Lack of clarity, with no real point or purpose
  • Poor structure, obscuring value proposition
  • Too much information, not enough style and emotional appeal

Delivering memorable communications

  • Play to audience needs, perceptions and aspirations: more about them, less about you
  • Inject more humor, personality and authenticity
  • Start strong, finish strong and keep the middle lean

Since brevity is the soul of wit, and tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, I will be brief.

William Shakespeare
