Want to write your own business content, engage your audience, and even write your own website copy? You’re not alone. So many business owners that we work with have a passion for words and want to take charge of their own content – but they aren’t sure what kind of content to focus on, or how to write for a specific audience. If that sounds familiar, our new online training courses have got you covered.

OCTOPUS is delighted to be partnering with Gill Perkins, founder of Creative Copywriting Services, to deliver practical training sessions to get you writing with confidence. Together, we’ve designed two courses with busy business owners and communications professionals in mind:

  • Content that connects
  • Winning words for your website

Let’s take a quick look at each course…

  • Choosing the right types of content for your business
  • Identifying your audience and understanding what they want

Bottom line, you’ll come away with lots of practical tools up your sleeve!
