FOR EMERGING & SEASONED ENTREPRENEURS

You don’t have to be a professional copywriter to sell your services like one.

Not everyone feels like a natural wordsmith, and that's okay. What’s not okay? When feeling like you’re not a seasoned writer holds you back from showcasing your brand’s true essence–and from making sales.

Here's the thing: The Essential Copy Course doesn’t teach you how to write; it empowers you to confidently elevate your brand's narrative so you can let your words effortlessly do the selling for you.


Struggling to articulate how your brand is different from the sea of others in your space

Not connecting with your audience due to lackluster, uninspiring website copy

Overwhelmed by the task of translating your brand's essence into compelling, engaging messaging

Since you're here, you're more than likely ...


All you know for sure is when you look at your blank doc, the cursor is taunting and you think:

where the heck do I start?

We intentionally crafted this course so you can…

Learn from a clear, couldn’t-be-easier to follow process that walks you through each step of writing conversion-driven copy for your website

Write copy that finally reflects the real value of your business - and even grows your own confidence & enthusiasm for it

Move forward in your business knowing how to convey all the ideas in your head in a cohesive, sales-driving way

BEFORE YOU LOSE HOPE, START HERE—

With the online business world growing faster than our list of favorite wine recs, strategic and purposeful copy HAS TO be a cornerstone of any successful brand. Our question for you is, are you up for the task with us behind you?

WHAT MAKES The ESSENTIAL COPY COURSE SO Essential?

IMAGINE IF YOU COULD:

"I love the sh*t out of your products & approach to copy development. I have learned + accomplished so much."

It's given me a thoughtful structure when I desperately needed help with the overwhelming stream of consciousness I had going, which sounded like a version of, "I'm launching a new business and I have three bazillion ideas I want to communicate to the world and where on this good green earth do I start?!

CALI, LEADERSHIP COACH

"Truly one of the only courses I’ve purchased that's provided soooo much value for such an affordable price."

I was always dying for my workday to end so I could run to watch more lessons and work through the guide. I am 3+ years into my business and have never sat down before and thought about messaging, mission, brand values, etc this in depth before for my own business (even tho I preach this to my clients) so I’m super excited to have this foundation to grow upon.

PRAISE FOR OUR COURSES

Get compliments & consistent leads from your copy — knowing you're the one who wrote it.

Your brand's story is the heart of your business. Trust us - we’ve written hundreds of messaging guides & websites – it’s not something we take lightly here at CU.

A well-crafted narrative (coupled with smart site design) ensures your message not only stands out but deeply resonates, leaving a lasting impact on your audience. And that’s exactly what  The Essential Copy Course™ helps you walk away with.

It's everything you need to write your own copy, The CU Way—our unique blend of approaches, philosophies, processes, and techniques to effectively drive results for your business.

WHAT’S INSIDE

Bite-sized & buildable lessons, videos, resources &
a complete 220+ page Coursebook

part 1

Uncork: Research & Discovery

Grab your favorite vino as we start by getting clear on why you’re here. Not just ‘here’, as in investing in your hard-earned brand, but why you chose to fire up shop and start a business in the first place.

Our prompts will guide you in establishing your brand story and leveraging that foundation to power and give purpose to your website copy. You’ll learn how *not* to create a brand voice that feels forced or inauthentic to maintain. And instead, exactly how to create a brand voice that’s authentic to you and therefore, second nature to maintain.

Pour: Writing & Wireframing

Time to get things flowing as you learn how to structure solid, purposefully built-out web pages with a strategic (and SEO-optimized!) flow that nurtures and converts your readers into clients.

And while we’re firm on the belief that copy leads design - and not the other way around, we understand that most of us are visual in nature. Which is why in TECC we instruct you to review the overall site structure and design plan before writing your first headline.

Within this course, we’re walking you through step-by-step and prompt-by-prompt, the following pages: Home, About, Services, Supporting Pages (Blog, Portfolio, Contact).

"I'm so proud of [my copy] and couldn't wait to show it off."

When I say I rewrote this site, I'm talking a top-to-bottom, written-from-scratch endeavor—and it never, never, would've happened without the course and your guidance. So, seriously, thank you again.

- ANN, EDITOR

"For the first time ever, I'm excited about the copy for my website. It feels like a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulders."

[Before starting the program I felt] frustrated and heartbroken. I was exhausted from spending hours being taunted by blank Google Docs and feeling like nothing I was coming up with was good enough. The course has set my business up for a new chapter with a brand identity and vision which I cannot wait to share with the world.

TECC IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF…

You're a brand founder ready to use words to capture your audience's attention and interest

You’re not a ‘bad’ writer but you need help with strategy & finesse

You’re an online business owner who’s confident in your work, but not so confident in how you write about it

You’re often long-winded and don’t know what to keep vs. scratch - and wish you had a solid structure to keep it all in check

You wish there was a more affordable way to achieve pro-level copy because a mid-four figure investment for copywriting services just isn't in the cards right now

You like working at your own pace, but also don't want it to take forever - you need a guide that moves you along efficiently & effectively

You’re predominantly a service-provider, creative, coach, educator, etc. with some element of a personal touch to your brand

You have a hard time “selling” yourself - but know you need to find a way to do it (just without the ick factor, please!)

THIS full-bodied COURSE is RIPE with VALUE, SOPHISTICATED & ROBUST, like your FAVE CAB.
