What is Smart Brevity?

Smart Brevity is a communications formula built by journalists — then perfected inside of hundreds of organizations — to help professionals prioritize essential information, explain its impact on readers, and deliver both in a concise and visual format. 

  • Most Smart Brevity communications are 40-50% shorter than typical updates, with all the same vital details preserved. 

It works because it's built on brain science. We spent years digging into data and changing reader behaviors to learn what keeps folks engaged.
