B2C Testimonials
  • I thought the course was very good! A nice refresher for those of us who have been doing this kind of writing for a long time (as we often lose sight of such things). Also, I can definitely see how this course is very beneficial to those just starting out/transitioning their role into this type of writing.
    - Chad Rutan, Copywriter, Highlights for Children
  • Although I have been a newspaper reporter and fiction writer, I had no previous education in copywriting, so I've been very excited to take this class. I can't think of any way it could have been better. Basically, I feel like it crammed the equivalent of a whole semester college copywriting class into 6 weeks, so I feel grateful to have been part of it.
    - Chris Morgan, Copywriter, Highlights for Children

  • The Direct marketing Conference was everything I was hoping for and more. It has given me the context for all direct marketing mediums and tied them all together. The value in direct mail alone is worth the conference. Ashleigh was a wonderful and knowledgeable instructor. Couldn't be beat!

  • I benefited greatly from this course. It provided a very good foundation for how to create better copy for audience engagement.

Also, it reinforced how engaging your audience through content, and your unique identity can be very effective.
