Event description

Description

Does your copy convince YOU? Is it vivid and engaging, or are you guilty of using tired adjectives such as "comprehensive" and “essential"? Perhaps you would love to write more exciting copy, but you simply don't have the time to do so, or your colleagues feel that the copy is not "appropriate" for your products. If you can relate to this, join us at this fun workshop and prepare to feel liberated!

*Rachel Maund will also be conducting a workshop on email marketing, click here for more details!

Course Outline:

You can expect a lively introduction and a mind-changing refresher to copywriting. The course will cover

- Universal principles that really work, whatever you're selling, online or offline

- Why writing copy is totally different from the writing you learned in school

- Writing copy for readers, not 'markets' or products.

- Focusing on the 10-second sell and on calls to action.

- Fewer words, greater impact: being ruthless and taking risks.

- How to get attention, and keep it.

- Writing for different formats: book covers, advance information, catalogues, brochures, sale letters, press releases, websites, emailing, social media, advertisements.

- Short exercises on critiquing examples of copy, and working on real examples brought by participants.
