Description:
Csaba's tips:
- types of guidebooks (adventure / shopping / style, culture, coffee table, etc.)
- audiences / target groups
- getting clients
- special vocabulary (including terminology of related subjects: culinary, architecture, history, pop culture, etc.)

Cecilia's ideas:
1. Types of guidebooks in participants experience;
2. Writing for specific audience types (young learners, specialists, general public), with specific emphasis on register and intention;
3. Marketing guidebook services (sharing tips,
prospective clients, marketing keywords, etc.);
4. Terminology-related matters (helpful links, using the GlossPost interface, glossary searches, etc.).
