    Programme

    • Foundations

    Learn how people read online, how to create a business case, philosophy & how to get a good brief.

    • Best practices 

    You’ll spend most of the day discussing and engaging with exercises that cover issues such as: Vocabulary, Headings, Lists, Bold, Page summary, Links, Information scent, Sentences & Paragraphs & Concision.

    • Mobile devices

    Throughout the day, you’ll also learn how online copywriting’s best practices can be used to address the specific concerns of mobile devices.

    • Evaluating online copy

    You’ll learn how to use our ‘3-Levels of Analysis Model’ to evaluate and critique online copy.

    • Search Engines, Email & Social Media

    Modern online copywriters need to know their craft’s best practices for all these core areas. Learn the key issues (including: page length, link text & effective image/ video use) and get an edge in the marketplace!

    Course Requirements: You won’t need to bring a laptop or tablet. For convenience, all the exercises are paper-based.

     

    Who should attend?

    You’ll benefit hugely from this course if you’re a writer transferring into digital. It has also greatly helped digital professionals who are looking to refresh their existing skills!

    We’d also highly recommend the course for anyone who manages online copywriters. You might not need to do any writing yourself, but this course will help you to evaluate and critique others’ work. 

    For a more advanced look into: tone of voice, structure and concision, we recommend our Online Copywriting – Advanced course.
