Updated copywriting training course coming soon

We’ve temporarily withdrawn our online copywriting skills training course, but don’t worry: an updated version of the course will be coming out soon.

The new course, developed by Dr Alan Rae, includes new content on telling your story in writing, as well as digital copywriting. Dr Rae is a Fellow, and former Regional Chair, of the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Written communication is the foundation of Internet-based marketing – however it’s quite different from conventional copywriting. That’s because you have to allow for people having different reading styles online. You also have to address the issues of Google search and spam filtering when you are writing web pages or email content.

The new course is all about how to write digital copy. It comes in three short 20 minute modules. It updates the original single module with material on digital copywriting, and includes information from various research projects into what makes digital media attractive to a prospective customer.

It is ideal for Technical Authors and other technical writers who are also tasked with writing marketing copy, as well as those who simply need to improve their copywriting skills.

The new course will release December 2012/January 2013.

The course is also available as an on-site, classroom course. Contact us for details of this option.
