Are copywriting courses worth it?
It’s a valid question to ask when committing to anything, today. Time is a precious resource, and we want real results after all!
Well, the answer is yes, but it depends on a lot of factors.
Being a Content Marketing Copywriter, as well as a teacher at five different educational institutions in Australia, let me give you the pointers about what to look out for and how to get the best result for your investment.
That way, you’ll say: ‘yes, that copywriting course WAS worth it.”

Why study copywriting?
But more importantly, copywriting plays a really big role in business today – because copywriters create content.
Content marketing has become the cornerstone of modern marketing practise as an effective way to reach and engage your audience, especially due to the power of the digital landscape.
Why? Because your audience demands it. Every day. And on their terms.
If a business wants to be successful, it needs to be proactive in answering this demand for entertaining and informative content.
Effective, quality content has so many forms and connects with people on a genuine level, rather than spamming them with direct selling, and it’s a copywriter who creates the majority of these materials.
Learning Copywriting helps you access this potential
It gives you access to a wide range of marketing activities to offer greater value to your customers.
To give you an example, my days as a professional copywriter consists of:
- writing blogs for companies
- writing scripts for videos
- writing agendas for conferences
- writing slides for educational presentations
- writing plans for podcasts
- writing nurturing email campaigns
- writing posts for social media
- writing strategy for Business Plans
- writing information for plans
- writing speeches for PR
- writing content for websites, and the list goes on.
This gives you an idea of the scope that a copywriter has.
Copywriting is the key to creating quality content that gets results
It will give you more of a background on how learning to do this well is advantageous for both your career and your business.
Brushing up on your copywriting skills at a class can be a great idea, because it gives you access to a wide range of marketing activities to offer greater value to your customers.
Why go to a Copywriting course?
Who should attend a Copywriting course?
We all know how to write, read and speak due to years of schooling, but copywriting is not that simple.
It requires technique, experience, expertise and a lot of practise. However, don’t get put off, as attending a class can inspire you, and point you in the right direction. Even introductory courses can make a difference, because the chances are, you’ll hear something new or different that you never would have considered before.
I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to watch students experience that ‘ah huh’ moment, where something clicks or they pick up a trick to take back with them.
What should you learn at a Copywriting course?
By the conclusion of your course, you should know:
- know what copywriting is
- understand why it’s crucial in business today
- appreciate the difference between good and bad writing

- use copywriting effectively

- be able to write to communicate with their audience
- know the breadth of content creation in its many forms
- be confident in working with a copywriter

If your copywriting class promises these outcomes, then it’s worth your time to attend.
