    It has been a calling for me to write for the web ever since I started as a content writer back in 2004. Content is King – that’s the old school of thought that has guided my SEO profession.

    Therefore, being a Certified SEO Copywriter will only reinforce my value of content to be delivered to my market audience.

    Credibility is a major factor in business. People won’t buy, if they don’t trust. Becoming a certified SEO copywriter will help me attract the high paying clients I desire.I would like to enhance my copywriting skills to increase profits for my clients. That way, I can help give back in more ways than one. If I can help at least one person with the power of words, I know that my work is done.

    The power of the written word never ceases to amaze me. I often feel very charged with the knowledge that not only can I influence highly advanced mathematical algorithms for my clients website rank but that I can directly impact the emotional connection between clients and their buyers.

    I absolutely love helping clients find that sweet spot that fosters connection and engagement, and certification in SEO Copywriting will enable me to do just that.

    Thanks for making this generous offer for some lucky winner to add solid SEO skills to their arsenal.

    SEO Copywriting is what I want to do for a living. After taking several courses in internet marketing I knew I was on the right career track, but felt something was missing. Looking further, I started taking courses learning how building websites.

    It was here I discovered, as I built websites for my assignments, I had more fun writing the content than the code. Since then, I’ve been reading everything I can get my hands on trying to learn this craft.

    My goal is to to help businesses drive search results through quality content. Winning this course would be the icing on my internet cake.

    Thank you for putting this amazing offer to the community.

    Writing is one of the few things that I am good at, (although I am managing to hide that quite well right now!) unfortunately there isn’t much money in poetry and travel writing – but copywriting is something I really enjoy and it would be excellent to get a ‘real’ job! I hope my boss doesn’t read this!

    I’d love to take the Certified SEO Copywriting course to help myself learn more about copywriting. I’ve been told my copywriting’s stellar and helps our company effectively sell products, but there’s more than that; there’s a “hidden” SEO part that none of us in-house copywriters really truly understand. I’d love to learn and teach my coworkers how we can improve our site conversions by doing what we love: working with words.

    So many people come to me with sites that need drastic updates because they have been burned by scams or marketers making big promises about SEO. I want to work continuously on my SEO education so that I can help other entrepreneurs get the SEO they need to meet their goals… while saving time and money. This way, they can offer more value to their customers, and it’s a winning situation for everyone.

    Hi Heather!
    I just graduated with a B.A. in English; however, despite getting straight A’s, I’ve been pushed into the real world of writing without any course knowledge on SEO– never even heard the term until I began my copywriting internship! I’ve been doing independent research, but now that my internship has turned into an exciting part time job I want to give my boss’s bridal site the quality content she deserves.
    Thank you for this opportunity!

    Hi Heather

    What a tremendous opportunity you are offering. I am starting my B2B business and have landed a client that is now requesting help with their website visibilty. I recently lost my primary source of income, so I am not in the position to be able to purchase a SEO course to enhance my skills. Being able to acquire your SEO training and certification would be invaluable to me and my clients and allow me to stand out and produce the best copy for my client’s websites.

    Although I’ve enjoyed helping small business clients with traditional copywriting, I’m learning that SEO copywriting requires both a grasp of writing keyword rich content with persuasion and web technology savvy.

    Business owners have a hard enough time running their business, never mind learning this area of expertise. That’s why they need folks who are qualified to help – like a Certified SEO Copywriter.

For several months, I’ve been following the advice on your blog, your eletter, LinkedIn…and I’ve come to this conclusion: if I’m going to start offering — or even specializing in — SEO Copywriting, I’m going to HAVE to learn from Success Works.

    Hi Heather

    I have just started freelancing full-time after losing my job (the agency I worked at folded).

    Credibility is so important in our industry. Becoming a certified SEO copywriter will help me attract more SEO business. I find that clients love my work but some are not sure of my SEO ability. Your course will prove my credibility, grow Bright Copy and help my new freelancing business become more successful.

    Heather,

    Did you know that F. Scott Fitzgerald spent hours copying works from writers he admired?

    Fitzgerald strove to understand the rhythm, tone, and phrasing of his mentors to develop his own unique voice.

    I need a copywriting mentor. I choose you.

    The first day I started my position as a copywriter I was handed your book “Successful Search Engine Copywriting.” My copy is dog-eared, highlighted, and still working.

    I’m ready for the next step!

    Becoming a Certified SEO Copywriter is an important step to gaining confidence not only in yourself as a professional, but to a client deciding between two similarly skilled writers. I want to become certified so that the knowledge acquired from your course will be validated which also creates a sense of accomplishment. Certification from your course can be that springboard to knowledge followed by experience to gain success in this field.

    I encounter clients, business people who believe SEO can be accomplished by registering their sites with search engines. Or that you buy keyword domain names. I want to be able to educate them on how SEO works, help them make their sites truly optimized.

    But while I’ve read blogs, articles, books on the subject, I feel like I’ve only get pieces of the puzzle without ever seeing the big picture. I want the big picture!

    SEO training is just what I need to take my online marketing copy business to the next level. My clients appreciate the writing I do for their sites. Their clients and prospects find it helpful, too. But these sites don’t always receive a lot of “search” traffic. I think that’s because, although I use keywords to the best of my ability, overall we aren’t following the right process. I’d like to fix that!

    I am so ready for SEO Certification after countless hours and months of circling the Internet—researching and pursuing possibilities in SEO copywriting, believing SEO writing is indeed “real” writing and then finally making acceptable pay, which is still not enough to justify my hours, efforts and the positive feedback I receive. This opportunity feels like arriving to the gate for high-level success, after too many back alleyways. I could pursue “green” SEO content copywriting.

    SEO Copywriting has “had me” since I found the site’s blog as the #1 answer to a nitty-gritty question I queried. First thought: I want a piece of that cake. I’m the sole owner/operator of a niche SEO writing & consulting business, which means I have little time to educate myself. My clients deserve the best, not only in SEO strategies, but in quality writing and customer conversions. I want SEO Copywriting’s recipe!
