taking copywriting training online

Your goal, as you go through this step-by-step copywriting training, is to develop your website, conversion & search engine copywriting techniques to the point that you don't merely put words on a page. 

Instead, you create a plan based on your precise target customers. Your copy will be specifically geared to speak to, make a connection with and persuade your customers to click, call, subscribe or buy.

And with all the tips, tricks and tools I give you... creating this kind of response to your site is easier than ever.

"And What About Ranking with the Search Engines?"

Don't be fooled. Copywriting is not one-size-fits-all. And SEO copywriting isn't about just stuffing hundreds of keywords into the content on your site's pages. In order to make search engine copywriting work, you have to find the balance between what the customer wants and what the search engines need. 

And you will!  It's all laid out for you in a logical, easy-to-understand manner so you know exactly where to put keywords without ruining the flow or message of your copy.
