PRLog - Feb. 14, 2012 - ALBANY, Calif. -- The use of jargon to pump up a business' importance is no longer valid. (And frankly, really tiresome.) Terms like "thought leader" are misleading. They imply hierarchies which don't really exist on the Web. No one benefits from having to decipher cryptic business websites and product descriptions. Corporate people are desperate to be addressed as human beings. Let’s discuss alternatives to heavy jargon use and stiff "business-y"
Each week, The Global Product Management Talk features an expert guest discussing pre-posted questions with the co-hosts and Twitter participants broadcast live over BlogTalkRadio. The transcript of Tweets and podcast are available for on-demand consumption on the web, iTunes and Android mobile app.

Chris Williams switched from IT administration to copywriting in 2002. He is a free lancer focused on Web Writing - creating content for websites, case studies, emails and other marketing material. Along the way he's written for everyone from tech companies to off-the-wall startups to defense contractors. He blogs about "Confusing Content" (the jargon-choked business pages we hate reading) and "Clear Content" (human-language content that, surprise surprise, actually markets well!) at http://www.blue-
Chris says, "When asked to address the Global Product Management Talk community, I thought, 'Great idea!' Every stage of the product lifecycle needs content.

Luckily for all of us, the alternative is easy: Make sure your content is jargon-free & easy to understand. I'm happy to share my thoughts on how to do this!”
