Training: Copywriting for Sales and Marketing

20 June @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm, 10 St Bride Street, London, EC4A 4AD

Why should you choose this course?

This workshop will help you develop a complete process for creating effective copy – from interpreting a brief to writing the copy itself.

The course will explore preparation and starting points. What useful connections are there between your product and target reader? What impact do you want to make? What action do you want the reader to take? With these objectives in mind, we will examine different possible structures for different types of documents – online copy, press releases, brochure copy, brand ads and others.

We will then focus on producing clear, easy-to-read copy. We will test out different approaches for joining together ideas and images as building blocks, with the ultimate aim of persuading the reader. This will include ways of deploying tone, emotion and key phrases for the right results.

There will be practical exercises throughout the course, with an emphasis on sharing best practice.

Who should attend?

  • Professionals who write online content or other documents for selling products or services.
  • Sales professionals who want to be as persuasive on the page as they are in person

What is the course outcome?

By the end of the workshop, you’ll have gained new approaches to preparation that you’ll be able to apply across different media. You’ll have evolved a process that is creative, collaborative and organised. You’ll be able to avoid clichés, and opt for a fresh style to get your brand across in a memorable way.
