Turn your words into money
Write Sales Pages
Learn how to write sales pages (that sell!) course
>> Need to compel people to take action?
>> Want your website to work harder to sell?
>> Want to package and streamline your services?
This is a sales page. Every page with a dollar symbol is a sales page. Every page which lists your services is a sales page. Every time you use writing to compel people to take action – to buy, register interest, book now, pay now – you’re writing sales copy. And these words are the difference between tonnes of new clients … or crickets.
Words are expensive, are you using yours effectively?
Your clients need to understand the value of what you sell
Far too many businesses assume far too much on behalf of their prospects. And these assumptions cost money.
We need to skilfully communicate the value of what we sell. It’s our responsibility to deeply understand exactly how our services translate into making our clients’ lives easier, more effective and efficient, more enjoyable.
But when we’re immersed in our business, it can be very hard to see the wood for the trees.
In fact, many talented and highly experienced professionals are terrible at communicating value – they know their subject so well that they’ve lost the ability to make it accessible to other people. But value can be communicated – first through understanding the building blocks, and then by artfully constructing them into magnetic, compelling, human language.
If you’re selling services, you’re selling promises.
You need to dig into the building blocks of communicating value to help your prospective clients to understand. Regardless of how obscure what you do is, I guarantee you can quantify and qualify your value.
Weave your magic with magnetic language
Data doesn’t sell by itself – we are human and humans are emotional. Learn how to combine your building blocks of value with magnetic language, evocative imagery and compelling propositions.
Tapping into empathy and emotional intelligence, we use our wordsmithery powers for good, helping prospects to decide whether they’re in or out, without resorting to heavy-handed fear tactics and dishonesty.
Integrity ensures we build trust and create sustainable businesses that are here for the long-term.
Your sales page is where all your marketing efforts come to fruition
Without sales pages on your site, you’re relying on word-of-mouth recommendations and random encounters, which is fickle and unscalable. Without sales pages, your sales process needs to be face-to-face, making it difficult to scale.
If you’re doing digital marketing, all roads lead to your sales pages – and these need to perform.
Let me show you how to take new people, who’ve never heard of you before, and convert them into new paying clients, without a face-to-face meeting or phone conversation.
Learning how to write effective, compelling sales pages enables you to reach into the minds and hearts of strangers and compel them to take action. This skill may be the most valuable one a business owner has – you’re literally turning words into money.
“Brook has a phenomenal ability to take a vastly complex topic and distil it down to the most pertinent ‘action points’ so it no longer seems so intimidating.”
“I met Brook at a freelancing masterclass and loved her energy – when she spoke about repelling unsuitable clients and attracting your ideal clients, I was sold. The Write Sales Copy (that sells!) course was targeted and highly practical. The immediate access to the first lesson, and tasks in between the two live sessions meant the learning could be implemented straight away. Having thorough notes and a ‘recipe’ to follow made it easy to get the thing done. I’ve left courses before with bags of good intentions. I left this one with a draft of my sales page ready to go. That’s value!
It was great to learn that marketing yourself doesn’t need to be cheesy or uncomfortable – that in fact, selling who you really are is the way to go. Focusing on the potential client’s problem and how to solve it makes for sales copy that’s both helpful and authentic.”

Our fourth, live session – all about strategising: May 13
Let’s talk launching! Together we strategise about the best launch activities for you, based on your capacity, interests, your business reality, and your communication strengths.
