Learning Outcomes
  1. Plan your copy: Start by identifying your target audience. Understand their demographics, interests, and preferences. Determine the length of your copy based on the platform and medium you’re using. Outline the key messages you want to convey and decide on any graphics or visuals that will enhance your message. Most importantly, establish the voice and tone you want to use, considering the audience’s expectations and your brand’s identity.
  2. Write your copy: Use engaging and evocative language that aligns with the established voice and tone. Incorporate storytelling techniques to make your content compelling. For selling a location, paint a vivid picture with words, describing its unique features and the experiences it offers. Create a narrative that draws readers in and makes them feel a connection to the place.
  3. Edit your copy: During the editing process, ensure that every word serves a purpose. Be concise and remove any unnecessary words or phrases. Make sure the content is readable and engaging, avoiding overly complex sentences. Focus on clarity and coherence in your writing.
  4. Classic editing ‘removals’: Steer clear of clichés and be vigilant about tautology, which is the unnecessary repetition of words or ideas. Avoid overused phrases or expressions that can make your copy sound unoriginal. Opt for fresh and original language.
  5. Format your copy: Pay attention to the visual presentation of your copy, especially if it will be in print. Ensure that the layout is aesthetically pleasing, with appropriate font choices, spacing, and the use of bullet points or other formatting elements to enhance readability.
  6. Check your copy: Conduct a thorough proofreading process to catch any spelling and punctuation errors. Consistency in font usage, spacing, and formatting is crucial. Ensure that your content looks polished and professional.
  7. Common errors: Be aware of common writing pitfalls, such as grammatical mistakes, inconsistent tone, or factual inaccuracies. Review your content one final time before publishing to avoid any disastrous errors that could harm your message or reputation.
Course Content
  1. Planning your copy for its audience and key message: Start by understanding your target audience thoroughly. Determine their demographics, interests, and preferences. Tailor your copy to resonate with this specific group. Identify the key message or messages you want to convey and ensure they align with the audience’s needs and expectations.
  2. Writing engaging copy: Once you’ve identified your audience and key message, use language that captivates and maintains their interest. Employ storytelling techniques to make your copy engaging and relatable. Craft a narrative that not only conveys information but also evokes emotions and connects with your readers.
  3. Editing your copy: The editing process is crucial for refining your copy. Review each word and sentence to ensure clarity and conciseness. Eliminate redundancy and extraneous information. Ensure that your writing flows smoothly and logically. Pay close attention to grammar and punctuation, adhering to British English standards.
  4. Formatting your copy for its media: Consider the medium in which your copy will be presented. Whether it’s for print, web, social media, or other platforms, format your content accordingly. Ensure it’s visually appealing, with appropriate fonts, headings, and layout. Make it easy for readers to navigate and consume your content.
  5. Check your copy / critical proofreading: Before publishing, conduct a thorough proofreading check. Scrutinize your copy for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. Verify the accuracy of any facts or information presented. Pay attention to consistency in tone and style throughout the piece.
  6. Avoiding common errors: Familiarize yourself with common writing pitfalls and avoid them. These errors may include using clichés, overused phrases, or jargon that might alienate your audience. Be aware of cultural sensitivities and avoid offensive or inappropriate language.

Measuring The Success


The purpose of your training is learning new skills and/or changing behaviour. We can help you measure this!

To evaluate how successfully the attendees are doing this, delegates can attend a Workplace Implementation session during the skills transfer period. The cost of the session is £595+VAT delivered virtually and lasts for 2.5 hours.

During the Workplace Implementation session the individuals will either on a 1-2-1 basis or as a group discuss the challenges and successes they have experienced during their skills transfer period.
This will include what they are doing differently as a direct result of the training and how this has positively impacted the organisation.
This is an excellent way to encourage the learning, support the skills transfer into the workplace and act as a measure to evaluate the training.

We compile this information into a report so that you have evidence of your return on investment.
