This one-day course is a basic introduction to writing copy for online audiences. During the day attendees will be introduced to the principles of writing for the web, best practice guidelines and useful formats for newsletters, blogs and website copy. The day will include practical exercises as well as time for discussion. Attendees are welcome to bring examples of projects they are working on for feedback during the day.

Introduction

Copywriting for the web is different to print publications. We skim articles, hop from page to page and often read on the move or on our mobile devices. It stands to reason that how we write for the web needs to take these factors, and more, into consideration.

Topics

  • Why writing blogs and articles can help promote a business, product or service.
  • Why writing online copy is different to other mediums
  • The good, the bad and the ugly - discuss examples
  • Best practice tips and techniques for writing for the web
  • Useful formats for writing newsletters, sales copy and articles
  • Repurposing and recycling copy for online use - where to use it and what changes to make
  • Keeping your content on track – the principles of planning and measurement

Course Benefits

 

Attendees will gain an understanding of the principles of writing for online audiences and will have the chance to practice their new skills. They will leave feeling confident and full of ideas for online articles to promote their business.
