Copywriting Training for Your Team
Every message your team puts out is a representation of your business.
Emails, social media posts, blogs, landing pages, adverts, direct messages, direct mails, press releases – the list goes on.
And what do all those things have in common?
And the words you use can make the difference between winning a new customer and turning them off forever.
Our Write to Sell training course is designed to give your teams the skills and confidence to create sales copy and marketing content that resonates with your prospects and customers.
It’s not just about sticking words on a page – it’s about understanding the purpose behind them. Who are you writing for, and what action do you want them to take next?

Our content marketing workshop can be added to either of the above options at an additional fixed fee of £1200+vat. We recommend holding the content marketing workshop within 30 days of the original course and allowing a full day.
Write to Sell online:
Although Write to Sell for teams works best in person, it can also be delivered via Zoom. We recommend splitting it into 4 x 90-minute sessions with practical tasks to complete between each session.
Write to Sell for individuals:
If you are looking for training for yourself or a single member of your team, you might find our 12-week training and mentoring programme more beneficial. This is bespoke training and can include any or all of the Write to Sell elements as well as copy reviews and one-on-one support.
If you have very specific requirements for your copywriting training, we’re more than happy to discuss your needs and put together some bespoke content.
Write to Sell is designed and delivered by Lisa Slater, owner of Make Your Copy Count and author of the A-Z of Blogging and The Freelance Fairytale: How to Create Your Happy Ever After.
Lisa has been copywriting professionally since 2014 and delivering copywriting and content marketing training since 2017. As well as providing copywriting training to individuals and teams, Lisa also offers marketing mentoring for business owners, freelancers and junior marketers.
“Incredible. I initially worked with Lisa on her 12 week course, she took me and a hotch-potch of enthusiasm, poor punctuation and a dodgy business model and enabled it to become consistent, credible and confident.”
Susie Palmer-Trew, Change Professional
“I would absolutely recommend the course because Lisa keeps everything so simple with so many useful tips and ideas. It all makes total sense without being overwhelming or over the top.”
Nadine Kimani, Marketing Manager
“I went on Lisa’s “Write to Sell” course – it was packed full of useful information, fun games and exercises and I refer back to the workbook for inspiration and guidance every week.”

About Make Your Copy Count Ltd
Make Your Copy Count Ltd was incorporated in January 2017 by Lisa, who had previously been trading as Lisa Slater Copywriting since 2014.
Prior to the launch of Make Your Copy Count, Lisa had been focusing solely on “done for you” copywriting services, but had identified a real need for simple, practical copywriting and content marketing training. So as well as launching a new brand, she also launched two courses: Blogging for Business and Write to Sell.
In 2019, Emily joined the team, supporting Lisa with social media and content creation for clients. Since 2020, we have moved away from offering done-for-you copywriting services, focusing more time on delivering high-quality training, consulting and mentoring services. However, we like to keep our skills fresh, so we still take on a few select clients who need our help with web copy and blogs.
