Writing for Business & Marketing

Overview of course

Do you want to understand the basic rules of writing clear, concise and compelling copy? Whether you write sales copy or marketing content, our copywriting course will give you an overview into creating highly readable and effective copy. This copywriting course doesn’t focus on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) techniques and how to increase traffic to your website. The purpose of this course is to help you to improve your copy and create a clearer, more effective message.

This copywriting course is limited to a maximum of 12 delegates to ensure that our experienced trainer has the time to assist you with any personal complex points that may arise during the day.

We ask delegates to bring along a short piece of recent copy (no more than 50 – 250 words) to discuss and review during the course. Don’t forget to bring along your own laptop, tablet or notepad to use during the course!

Who is it for?

This course is aimed at anyone who produces copy for both the sales and marketing aspects of copywriting and content communication, for example; newsletters, web content, blogs, mailshots, direct mail, advertisements, sales letters, brochures and social network postings. 

What will you learn?

This course will begin by looking at the principles of copywriting and how the writing process can help you to create compelling copy. We’ll examine how our tone of voice and having a clear picture of our audience contributes to creating the right message and helps you to connect directly with them. We’ll also critically examine both good and bad examples of sales and marketing copy. During this hands-on practical course, delegates will have an opportunity to analyse their own copy and see how the editing process can really enhance their writing skills. We’ll also look at some of the different forms of media and the challenges and opportunities they represent. Finally we’ll examine the importance of clear and concise communication and how we need to appeal to the emotions of our audience.
