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? 

Words. 

And the words you use can make the difference between winning a new customer and turning them off forever. 

Write to Sell is designed to give your team 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? 

Write to Sell: What's Covered?

Write to Sell has been running since 2017 and has been delivered online and in-person to individuals and teams in a wide range of sectors and roles. Marketers, non-marketers or sales professionals – there’s something for everyone.

“I was seeking a training course for my marketing team to establish core copywriting fundamentals and help them expand on their skillset. After a brief introduction with Lisa, I was confident in her approach and curriculum.

Now that the training is complete, I can say that I could not be more pleased with the training and the feedback I’ve gathered from my team. Her lessons were easy to understand and she helped the team apply them to real world examples in their roles. She also made the training engaging and interactive.

I would highly recommend Lisa’s ‘Write to Sell’ training to any marketing team looking to up-level their copywriting skills.”

Allison Shaub, Chief Marketing Officer

“Lisa was really knowledgeable and friendly. The team really enjoyed the course and she tailored it to our sector, so we could easily see ways to improve our copy.”

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.
