Tailored blogging course
makes it easy for you
to write effective blogs

Presented by a highly experienced professional blogger, our one-day blogging course spells out exactly what you must do to create and maintain a successful blog.

Our tutor breaks down the whole blog writing process into practical steps, showing you how to set up and run a blog that can help you achieve your communication goals.

Powerful tool
A well written blog can be a powerful tool for raising the profile of your company or organisation and its products or services. Successful bloggers sidestep traditional press and broadcast media to take their message directly to key audiences.

But every blog is different and every blogger has different needs.

That’s why our course, ‘How to write more effective blogs’, is carefully tailored to individual requirements.

Customised blogging training
Before you attend, our tutor will speak to you to find out about your personal objectives and your level of experience. He will then customise the course content to fit your profile.

Send him examples of material you have written – either blogs or other online or offline text – and he will give you constructive feedback on your writing.

Besides identifying your strengths as a writer and potential blogger, he will also highlight areas where he believes you can further develop your writing skills.

Practical blog writing tips
‘How to write more effective blogs’ offers a mix of practical tips, skill-building exercises and insightful review sessions. Throughout, the emphasis is on providing tried and tested techniques, that you can apply immediately to your own blog writing.

A key feature of the training is that the tutor is himself a successful professional web writer who writes a regular blog for a major international company.

As a result, his course is packed with insider tips on blogging based on his own experience and those of his professional colleagues.
