About the Class

In this course, you’ll learn how to write copy that grabs attention and motivates prospects to buy.

I designed this course for anyone who wants a shortcut to learning how to write a great copy. By the end of this course, you’ll be able to write copy that gets noticed, gets read and gets results.

You and I will examine the most successful advertising campaign in history. I’m talking about the newspaper ads for Volkswagen that ran during the 1960s and 1970s. This campaign took a boring, ugly, unknown product and made it one of the most talked-about, popular products in history. I’m going to show you dozens of ads from this campaign. Each one is a case study in how to write clever, powerful, funny, amazing copy.

You'll see how a successful ad is built. We'll cover headlines, visuals, opening lines, body copy, the format of a sales pitch, testimonials, features and benefits, reader engagement, humor, irony, keys to being original, endings, and plenty more.

I designed this course for two people: copywriters who want to improve their craft and aspiring copywriters who want to learn what actually works in copywriting.

This course contains no theory, just dozens of examples of copy that works, and a detailed explanation of why it works.

What will you learn in this course?
  • Write headlines that grab attention
  • Write headlines that compel prospects to read the body copy
  • Write headlines that work with visuals
  • Write opening lines that compel readers to read the rest of the ad
  • Use irony to grab attention

  • Build trust with body copy
  • Find and write unusual testimonials
  • Write effective endings to a sales message
  • Write copy that keeps readers reading right to the end

Who should take this course?
  • Any copywriter who wants to learn copywriting tips from the most successful print advertising campaign in history
  • Copywriters who want to perfect their craft
  • Writers who want to learn the basics of how to write effective print advertising copy
  • This course is not for people who want tips on SEO copywriting

  • This course does not offer any advice on how to start a copywriting business

Are you reading my bio because you want to improve your copywriting? Bonus. That makes two of us. 

Are you looking for a copywriting coach who has written for Fortune 500 accounts (Apple, IBM, Hilton Hotels, Bell)? Check.

Do you want your copywriting instructor to have experience writing in multiple channels (print, online, direct mail, radio, television, outdoor, packaging, branding)? Groovy.

If you had your way, would your copy coach also be a guy who has allergic reactions to exclamation marks, who thinks honesty in advertising is not an oxymoron, and who believes the most important person in this paragraph is you? 

Take my courses.

I'm Alan Sharpe. Pleased to make your acquaintance. I'm a 27-year veteran copywriter who has been teaching people how to write persuasively since 1989.

Through my conference workshops, copywriting classes, telephone seminars, webinars, trade journal articles, newsletters, blog posts and in my many books, I have helped thousands of copywriters on four continents master the craft of persuading on paper and in pixels.

I taught myself the craft of advertising copywriting, and worked as a freelance copywriter as well as a senior copywriter for two advertising agencies. I sold everything from pump parts to utility trailers to digital video transmission systems and insurance services, working in every media. I even helped a client use direct mail to sell a coffee table book about Elvis Presley. Don't ask.

After working for a decade as a copywriter, I narrowed my focus to two specialties: writing direct mail letters for businesses, and fundraising letters for non-profits.

Now I'd like to help you write copy that gets noticed, gets read, and gets results. Let's get started.
