Let’s be real… Copywriting and marketing have left a bad taste in many people’s mouths…

This is understandable when we look at the years of manipulative tactics, clickbait ads, dishonest “snake oil” claims, and outright disrespect of the audience’s intelligence. 

It’s no wonder we tend to turn our noses up at marketers! 

But the truth is that copywriting is an amazingly effective tool – and as with all tools, it’s up to the user to wield it for good or bad.



Bringing honesty back into the world of marketing

Each of us has the opportunity to bring integrity and ethics back into the marketing sphere. 

Where the spotlight is not focused on shady shortcuts just to make a sale – but instead shines on helping people solve problems. 

Empathizing with your customers without relentlessly stabbing at their pain points.

Asking important questions to truly understand their dreams and challenges.

Keeping your messages honest and transparent while still showing the value of your offer. 

THIS is the ultimate goal of this course — to show that building a culture of excellence in the marketing world starts with us, each one of us.


If you know how to read and write, you can make these skills work for you.

Whether you are a business owner, entrepreneur, or aspiring freelancer — having at least a baseline of copywriting skills is an absolute must! 

Writing persuasive copy can be a turning point for your business whether you are just starting out or already established. 

(And if you’re hiring someone to write for you, knowing some basics yourself is extremely helpful!)

If you combine this foundational understanding with empathy, integrity, and honesty, you will be unstoppable!


Now the questions arise…

“What exactly keeps my customers up at night and motivates them to take action?”

“How can I most effectively communicate the ways my offer can solve their problem?”

“How do I speak to them in a way that actually resonates?” 

“Where the heck do I even start?”

About Your Instructor

Kara Shepard-Poat is a Solopreneur and Senior Copywriter. She specializes in the captivating use of words to connect businesses with the people who need what they have to offer. She works with a wide variety of clients to create quality content that grabs attention. Everyone has a story to tell – she helps to bring it to life and get it in front of the right people.


“The growth I experienced during the few weeks of Kara’s course would have taken many months if I had fumbled around on my own. Since the course, I’ve written a regular newsletter, copy for multiple websites, and many marketing emails. If I ever need guidance, I turn to Kara – and my confusion turns to clarity. If you’re on the fence about taking Kara’s course, just do it. You have little to lose, and a whole lot to gain.”
Joe Bushell, Freelance Copywriter

“After almost two decades in direct sales marketing other companies' products, I found myself consistently frustrated when trying to publicize the benefits of my own business. This course taught me simple and proven methods for communicating effectively and maintaining trust with an audience that my previous work experience had not. The pacing and structure of the course also really appealed to me because each session is purposefully focused on a single topic, and later lessons build upon skills already learned in previous lessons. I never felt overwhelmed or lost in the course material at any point. As a result, I now have a practical process for working through the obstacles that were preventing progress in making my own copywriting successful.”
James Jordan, Writer & Business Owner

Khaliq Sim, Poet & Copywriting Student
