6 WEEK GROUP PROGRAMME
But your college course didn’t include training you to write great copy for your business: and you’ve realised that day in, day out, you need to use words to explain what you do and why people should buy it.
Memorable and magnetic copy WORKS. But you’re not Shakespeare. Words aren’t your strong point. And every time you try to distil what you do onto paper, or create ‘content’ that’s meant to get you customers, it always comes out garbled.
That’s where Copy That Connects comes in.
This 6 week online group programme will give you confidence to write engaging copy so that you can go forth and build your thriving and much needed wellness business, knowing your words are doing the talking for you.
With that in mind, you might feel that these statements hit eerily close to home…
You’re spending more hours than you’d like to admit on posting to socials, and then feeling so mentally wrung out by your efforts you’re left wondering, how can you psych yourself up to do it all again tomorrow?
You’re putting stuff out into the world - albeit sporadically - and you’ve been deflated at getting nothing but tumbleweed back. You’ve been asking yourself, “Do I have to share every sordid detail of my life in order to get people’s attention?”
You feel you are shouting into the abyss. You’re secretly a little embarrassed to admit that you don’t really know who it is you’ve been writing all this stuff for - or why, but you see that’s what successful wellness pros seem to do, so you keep going even though it feels pointless.
You could fill countless digital waste paper baskets with torn up copy you’ve started and then discarded. You’re a full-time fiddler. You’ve written, re-written and re-re-written your About page so many times that the words now all look like squiggly nonsense and you’re too confused yourself about what you wanted to say to send other people there.
But what if...
“[Vicky’s] honesty on what it takes to build a successful wellness business is a breath of fresh air. I trusted her guidance implicitly and knew early on I had made the right decision in choosing to have her as my mentor. [She] really is the expert in her field and was always so generous with sharing her knowledge and what she has learned along the way.”
NIAMH WALSH, NUTRITION & LIFESTYLE COACH
“Lea has a great deal of knowledge and shares generously. Her insight, ability and commitment to create a marketing message that relates to your brand and as importantly your brand emotion is amazing.”
AMANDA ARMOUR, CONSCIOUS LIVING COACH
“Vicky I had to tell you… just had a lady email me out of the blue to say that when she read my home page she was like.. YES that’s me! She has gone on to book a block of 1:1s. So I wanted to say thank you because your advice really helped me write the copy."
AMY, YOGA TEACHER
Now, look, we need to be realistic here; you do not become a fully fledged writer overnight. This is a practice, that takes practice. It’d probably take more than a year of consistently working on your writing to reach that goal (and, to be fair, we’ve both been doing this writing thing for years and still sometimes don’t feel we’re ‘fully fledged’ at this writing thing either!
Rather than (over) promising that you'll come out of this having every single thing written for your business and rivalling War & Peace levels of content output on the daily, actually what we’re doing is helping you to do the groundwork, lay strong foundations, develop your toolkit and start smashing some of those mindsets blockers that get in the way of you putting yourself Out There right now. We will, of course, share options for you to continue on your journey at the end of this container if you want to keep learning and honing the skill of writing for your business.
Lifetime access! And obviously 'lifetime' means for as long as my business is running and I am producing and hosting all of this work.
Not sure! With lifetime access to the content, even if you can't join the course live if you sign up you'll always have these resources to access. What's holding you back?
I haven’t really started my business yet, is this the right point for me to be investing in my copywriting skills?
100% yes. If you've just qualified and you're already feeling daunted at the prospect of all the writing you need to do to bring in customers, this course will be a perfect grounding to give you a fundamental skill set you’ll use daily.
If you’re a total business newbie you might not be able to apply everything we teach immediately, for example if you don’t yet have a website or email list set up. But by learning the foundations and testing out some writing with us you’ll be well set up when you get them launched and the course content is something you’ll be able to come back to time and again as you get the business off the ground.
The weekly content is one hour long and can be viewed or listened to in your own time. In addition if you choose to upgrade your place on the course to include community and Q&A access there is one hour a week live call with us. In order to get the most from that tier we would then suggest you set aside one hour a week to take part in the tasks we set and submit them into the community for feedback so you can actually walk away from the course with key copy written and polished to a professional level.
That’s a total of 3hrs a week for 6 weeks. Naturally any further time you’re able to give to practice your writing skills and join in the community conversations will further enhance your confidence and skills.
There is if you join us on the VIP tier - that'll give you access to the interactive community as well as expert input and feedback from us on your copy PLUS a spot at our weekly Connecting the Dots Q&A sessions. We're going to be hanging out together on a different community platform - no Facebook groups here! This is a space where you can share ah-ha moments from the week's training and ask for encouragement and support.
Our community will be a safe place that welcomes and celebrates humans of all races, ethnicities, gender, sexual orientation, and physical ability and as the facilitator of this space, we are open to all feedback for how we can make this community safe and inclusive for everyone who joins.
I’m not actually a wellness business owner but you are 100% speaking my language with this one, can I still join?
Absolutely, everyone is welcome. The methods and strategies we teach really are applicable across any industry, we just love helping wellness professionals and have tailored this course for them.
As long as you understand that most of the examples that we use in the training are drawn from people with health based businesses and you can make the leap to apply it to your own industry, there’s a place for you inside.
