It is not what you say, it is the way that you say it.

This copywriting course will help you nurture the skills required to ensure that your writing always makes the impact required and grabs your audience’s attention.


Wouldn't it be useful to have the in-house expertise to write high quality sales letters, websites, marketing collateral, press releases and presentations?

Our highly experienced professional copywriter will run a training course that focuses on basic principles and techniques for writing inspiring copy that sells your product or service effectively.

The aim is not necessarily to replace an external creative agency. However, where budgets or time are limited, you will have the internal resources to generate selling copy that gets the message across clearly and professionally.


Having in-house copywriting expertise has valuable benefits for your business or organisation, as well as providing employees with a useful addition to their skills set.

  • Save time and money
  • Stay in control of your marketing strategy
  • Acquire the skills to make day-to-day updates to the copy on your website without incurring the cost of a professional writer
  • Learn how to optimise your website for search engines
  • Take advantage of PR opportunities to raise the profile of your products or services
  • Increase motivation and job satisfaction by developing the personal skills and experience of your team.


Our copywriting courses will be of use to both marketing specialists and non-specialists with a marketing or sales remit.


1. Fundamentals of Copywriting

A general introduction to the art of writing for marketing communications. Topics covered include:

  • What is copywriting?
  • Know your audience
  • Writing for different media
  • The single-minded proposition
  • Headlines and subheads: catching the reader's attention and imagination
  • Body copy: techniques and styles
  • The call to action: getting a response.

2. Writing Better Sales Letters and Presentations

A sales letter or presentation is often the first (and sometimes the only) opportunity to "set out your stall" for potential customers. In addition, many larger companies rely on presentations for internal communications.

This module teaches letter and presentation writing skills, helping learners to get key messages across effectively in a professional manner.

3. Writing for Websites (including Search Engine Optimisation (SEO))

Websites have become the hub of marketing activity for most companies and replaced the traditional corporate brochure, particularly for SMEs. What a site says is just as important as how it looks, yet many companies do not pay as much attention to copywriting as they do to design.

This module covers basic techniques for writing website traffic pages, landing pages, blogs, FAQs and more. It also deals with how to search-engine-optimise your site, while still making copy flow naturally and avoiding getting caught in spam filters

4. Writing Better Press Releases and Advertising Features

Good PR can be a powerful weapon in the marketeer's armoury, achieving high profile coverage at low cost. However, there is an art to writing press releases and editorial to "soft sell" a product or service convincingly, and many submissions are ineffective.

This module covers everything from writing attention-grabbing headlines to creating a story and making sure it is newsworthy.

5. Writing for Advertising

Ads are usually expensive, so the copy has to do its job. In this module learners will find out how to create eye-catching concept headlines, write succinct, effective body copy and devise strong calls to action.

6. Writing for Direct Mail

Whether it is online or offline, direct marketing succeeds or fails on the persuasiveness of its copy. This module provides an overview of well-established and proven techniques for writing letters, mailers, e-shots, SMS and viral marketing.
