Good website copy will play an important role in attracting readers to your site. It also has the potential to persuade, engage, inform and entertain your audience. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to take your web-writing skills beyond the basics and ensure that your copy is both compelling for readers and optimised for search.

There will always be a combination of art and science in effective web copy.

On the other, you’re working to meet the demands of algorithms that decide on the relevance of your content. In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to find an appropriate balance.
