Social media is all aflutter by the impulsively posted messages shared with millions by misguided social media stars (and the rest of us). We use social media to push forward our brands, our communities, our causes, our businesses, our passions—and our politics. Learn to perfect your message from a Madison Avenue Copywriter who spent 25 years selling you stuff with a simple headline, tagline, or :15 second radio spot. Writing prompts, interactive exercises, and editing tips will help you create messages that will move your readers to act, react, donate, or even well up with tears. Like it or not, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook—and beyond—are here to stay, so we must master the beast before we are slain on social media.
