What makes copy compelling? Well, what stops YOU in your tracks? Guaranteed it isn't the use of dead words like 'solutions' and 'paradigm.' Great copy starts with simplicity and then delivers an unexpected yet emotional punch to the reader—inspiring an action, a response, a share, and more. But it's not always easy to deliver, is it? Good news: Through improvisational writing and before-and-after copy exercises you will be able to successfully tap the creative corners of your mind—even when you're under extreme pressure to perform. These methods will allow you to quickly write copy people want to read, share and act on. Join CBD Marketing's Executive Creative Director Mary Olivieri.
