Discover how to write for the web: either for your own brand or as a service that you provide to others. This video will include how to write a blog post, how to write website copy, how to write a persuasive sales script, and how to write SEO articles.
The focus will always be on providing value and on understanding the value proposition of the brand that you are writing for. From there, you will look at methods you can use to grab attention, communicate clearly, keep the reader engaged and to encourage an emotional response. You’ll cover the importance of content marketing for exposure as well as building trust, and just why writing is in many ways the currency of the web.
Content is what brings the vast majority of people to a website. They search Google for content, they return to a website because they enjoyed the content. It is also what sells a product – and simply by improving a sales script, a company can massively increase conversions. Companies that don’t understand how to write for the web will therefore be at a massive disadvantage. This is common to see: we all have encountered countless business sites with muddled messages that fail to explain what the company actually does and why the reader should care.

In this course, you’ll learn how to create writing that thrives on the web. That means writing that engages your audience, that helps you to sell a product, that helps you to gain prominence on Google, and that helps you to inspire trust and authority. In many ways, content is what makes the web go round. And so by learning these skills, you’ll be in a much better position to sell your products, promote yourself online, and much more.
Throughout this course, you’re going to be learning how to create amazing written content that serves a unique purpose for online marketing. Collectively, this is known as content marketing, the process of using the written word to bring people to your website. To keep them coming back to build confidence, and to build trust in you as an individual, or a brand. And ultimately, to convert leads.
To this end, we’ll be learning about types of content and web writing techniques that cover each step in the process. By the end, you’ll be able to handle all forms of web writing for yourself or for a client.
First you’ll learn how to write well generally. That means adhering to style guides, being efficient with your choice of vocabulary, and drawing the reader in. Then you’ll learn how to apply SEO techniques. This means optimizing your content for search engines to help people find your writing in the first place. Then you’ll learn how to make your content shareable, meaning that growth can become exponential as readers go on to share what they find with their broader networks.
Next is persuasive writing. This is how you capitalize on all that hard work by turning that trust and loyalty into sales. And finally, you’ll learn about some other forms of web writing that can be used as part of a content marketing campaign also. White papers, press releases, and the like.
Once you’ve mastered these basics, it’s down to you to post content regularly to a blog, and to share it to relevant channels. Consistency is really important. By doing this– and ensuring it’s engaging in SEO optimized– you’ll gradually start drawing more people to your site, creating more and more inroads and ways for targeted readers with shared interests to discover you.
Key is to always focus on providing value. You need to give your readers a real reason to come back to your site regularly, and to turn to you for advice, information, or entertainment on any given subject. Better yet, you want them to love your content so much that they share it, comment, and even provide you with free marketing.
You’re aiming to turn strangers, into readers, into followers, into fans. Once you have that trust, yours will be the first brand those fans turn to when they need a product or a service that you provide.
And that is content marketing in a nutshell. But first, we need to learn how to write for the web.
