Persuasive Online Copywriting Training

Ever struggled to write a headline?

The right headline can double, or even triple conversion. But how do you know what to say? We’ll show you how to generate lots of effective headlines that speak directly to your customers’ strongest felt needs.

Want more effective landing pages?

Do you have a high abandonment rate on your landing pages? It could be what you’re saying, but it could also be what you’re NOT saying. Learn how to know what questions your customers are asking and how to answer them effectively.

Want to create a consistent voice for your online communication?

What is your website’s voice? Are you going for friendly, professional, fun-loving? How can you communicate that voice throughout all your marketing channels? We’ll help you find your voice and communicate your company’s personality to your customers.

Copy is the most overlooked, yet the most important tool you have to persuade your visitors.

All your marketing dollars may be wasted if visitors arrive on your website and your message is not relevant to them. If they are not persuaded, they will NOT take the action you want them to take.

What Will Be Covered

The truth about copywriting courses

Becoming a remarkably better writer, in the sense of improving your core ability to make readers see, feel, and experience what you want – that’s a goal that takes consistent effort over months and years.

It ain’t gonna happen over a few day seminar or even a few week course.

But becoming a better Web copywriter?  You can become 2-3X better than you are now in a matter of days.

Online Persuasion: Emotional Relevance vs. Wordsmithing

The truth: copy that converts twice as many visitors is almost never “better” writing in the sense of being finely wordsmithed.   Copy that converts simply:

  • Addresses the varying felt needs of different visitor/customer segments.
  • Answers all the visitors questions within the sales copy itself, without requiring anyone to hunt through an FAQ
  • Creates persuasive momentum with each click/hyperlink so as to create buyer confidence in visitors the farther they move into your website.
  • Allows visitors to drill down on the points that are most important to them, while also allowing them to skip past details they’re not interested in.

Want to create that kind of copy?

Persuasive Online Copywriting – the book, the course, and…

Before this class, you had to come to NYC, or Orlando, or San Francisco, and take Persuasive Online Copywriting in person, during a all-day intensive course, normally taught back-to-back with Call to Action.

And neither of those courses has been offered in over a year.

Then there’s the book, Persuasive Online Copywriting.  Before it’s re-issue this is a book that sold used for more than $100 a copy. And that Copyblogger’s Brian Clark recommended as one of his Top 5 Books on Copywriting.

But a book can’t give you feedback or individualized instruction, or even tailor it’s material to your exact situation.

And that’s where the online version of our famous POC Course comes in.
