Smart Brevity FAQ

What is the Smart Brevity method?

Smart Brevity is an editing and writing methodology used to make communication updates more scannable, digestible, and memorable. It focuses on what's new and why it matters to readers, and uses formatting like bullet points and strategic bolding to guide them through important points. Most Smart Brevity updates are 40% shorter than typical communications, but hold all the same essential information.
