Learn how to plan for profit, communicate value, and price with confidence to make you an unstoppable force of awesomeness. Together, we’re going to uncover the stories you tell yourself – and try on new beliefs, attitudes and thinking that makes your own head your ally in business, not your saboteur.

Writing Sales Pages (that sell!)

Live, online course

Your sales page is where all your marketing efforts fruit. Every time you use writing to compel people to take action – to buy, register interest, book now, pay now – you’re relying on your sales copy to sell. And these words make all the difference between new clients … or crickets. If you’re selling services, you’re selling promises. Learn how to skillfully communicate the value of what you sell and weave magic with words.

How online training and learning works

Our online training utilises action-based learning:

first we learn, then we do.

People sometimes believe that online learning is inferior to face-to-face learning. But a student can be engaged or disengaged whether learning face-to-face or online.

The benefits of online learning include reach, repetition (through having the materials on hand to review multiple times), and easy reference.

We utilize all the opportunities the internet offers us, including video format, audio format, written format, visual models and graphics, online forums and groups.

Depending on which program you participate in, students are paired into accountability partners and the latest research into learning efficacy is drawn upon to motivate and inspire students to participate.
