How to Write Promotional Copies for Your Online Course

Many online educators create courses because they are passionate about something and want to share it with others. That is, of course, a magnificent and inspiring sight to behold. However, many educators hit a brick wall after producing their courses: their enthusiasm carried them through the creation part of their trip, but now they must shift into sales mode. The only difficulty is that they have no idea how.
Let’s look at some tips for writing promotional copy in the ideal way –

1. Write what you would read 

‍Avoid using too many ambiguous or fluffy terms. Many people will tell you that you shouldn’t use too many adjectives or adverbs—or too many words in general—but I don’t agree. The issue isn’t with the number of words, but with the quality of those words. Choose more descriptive terms linked to your subject instead of inflated adjectives (“wonderful,” “fantastic,” “awesome”).
Excessive use of jargon terminology should be avoided. Technical phrases are appropriate (and even desirable!) if you’re developing an advanced course for industry professionals. Using a lot of jargon words to appear impressive will be off-putting if you’re writing promotional copy for a fresh audience.

‍2. Choose the audience you want to write for

When working on their course sales text, course producers frequently make the error of believing that their course is “for everyone.” The truth is that it isn’t even for everyone who could be interested in learning about your topic. Some educators may find this contradictory because as teachers, they want to share their expertise with as many people as possible, while as company owners, they want to sell as many courses as possible. However, being more choosy about the type of student who would be a good fit for your course will result in higher-quality sales down the road, which will mean happier students and less stress for you.

3. Mention the benefits from your online course

Once you’ve determined who your target audience is, begin describing the ways in which your course will benefit them. A lot of promotional copywriting is too focused on features, which is fine. However, features aren’t beneficial until they provide value to the learner. “Daily quizzes,” “community forum,” or “one-on-one counseling,” for example, are examples of “features.” It’s crucial to be specific about what your course delivers, but only to students who are already interested in what your course teaches. In other words, features are a means to a goal, but they won’t matter until the learner cares about the destination.

4. Tweak the language

Make sure you use a language that the audience who follow your online course aesthetic would like to read. Use a personal tone in the promotional copies, a one where the audience would be interested in knowing more about. Remember to mention all the important points about your online course and how fun it would be if you could have interesting individuals like them to join in and put out their perspectives.‍

5. Use trigger words 

‍Always remember to use ‘trigger’ words while writing your promotional copy. Be it the promotional copies for your online course, or the emails you draft for the potential or existing customers, you need to ensure that your use words like ‘Don’t miss out the chance’, ‘Enroll now’, ‘Free’, ‘Attention’, etc.
