Content Writer Training
Fancy training to be a content writer?
Content writing is a great way to earn a living. And if you run a small business, content writing skills will help you sell your products and services.
Content writing training from Indie Essentials will walk you through the process to produce content that converts. Working one-to-one, you’ll produce a blog each week, with critical feedback to help you improve your writing skills and give you the foundations you need for a career in content writing.
Who is this training for?
VAs, Social Media Managers, journalists, small business owners, and anyone who has considered a career as a content writer but not known how to get started. You might already have a personal blog and be looking for an additional income stream that complements your current work.
The ten-week course includes a weekly hour video call, writing exercises, weekly coursework and feedback.
By the end of the course, you will master what makes a good blog, where to get your ideas, how to edit and start your own content writing business.
