It’s rare to find writing that makes you nod your head, drop your jaw, and open your wallet. That's what this course is for. It's for anyone writing emails, articles, sales pages, social posts, and more. This course is perfect for anyone who wants to use writing to get better results. No fluff. No touchy-feely theories. Only proven tactics, tools, and templates to make you a killer content creator.
Killer content is what you'll get. I have so much to apply here. I'm glad I can go back and review what I've learned as I apply the steps.
This is one of my favorite courses to date. I highly recommend this course for all writers.
I admit I made excuses for months on why I shouldn't take this course. I felt it was too expensive for how short the total class was. I told myself "I'm on Fiverr to make money not spend it". I'm not sure what made me finally cough over the $45, but I can tell you, in the 7 years I've been writing, I've never had someone magically help me understand the secret of writing killer content. If you don't take this course, that's okay. Because I did, and now I've updated all my Fiverr gigs to reflect what I learned, and I plan on selling more gigs than I ever have before. Thanks!
I love how informative it is!
Great info. I learned a lot.
Great course! I recommend for all writers who want to take their writing skill to the next level.
Fantastic content. Entirely relevant and immediately applicable. Only suggestion is to do handouts or a slide with a summary of the learning points for each section. I had to stop and rewind multiple times as some of the points rolled into the next. Sample articles to review with your checklist would've been extremely helpful, too. Still, was a Very worthwhile course and a high value for the price.
The course added value in streamlining the research and development process. It took efficient outlining techniques so you can think strategically even before putting pen to paper.
I liked it
Great course with actionable insights
Great course from one of the best in marketing.
Best Instructor On Here! Great Course, Packed with Real Content!
There was a lot of great material and advice in this lesson. More suited to beginning writers, however.
Very helpful and memorable tips!
A really useful and motivating course!
Great content for both novices and professionals
Better than any lesson I received in school!
This course has added much more to my writing ability. 5 stars.
Super useful for someone wanting to break into the freelance writing world! I needed more help with the copywriting aspects of writing and this course broke everything down into easy to learn, but powerful concepts.
Talk about no fluff! Every tip was gold. I CAN now make killer content.
Loved it. Couldn’t get enough of it.
I’m so inspired to write and get my content out there.
I have a framework and learned plenty new skills to make my writing pop. I even learned how to pitch major publications
Really impressed with this guy. Great course. Thank you.
This course is excellent for someone who’s totally newbie in writing like me. I was able to get key lessons and I feel confident enough to use these tips in my own work.
I would recommend it to anyone who is trying to write better to perform better!
Thank you !
The bonus tips on freelancing alone are worth the price of this course. Tons of actionable tips and strategies that can be applied across multiple industries.
Take this and his other course over a weekend. Jon's videos are simple yet entertaining and educational.
This guy is a master! You will thank yourself for buying this course and then thank him for teaching you the many hacks to create killer content. Thanks Jon!
I had to pause a lot of time to take notes etc....This consumes a lot of time.
It is great to have downloadable notes attached to the videos.
Very good information. Parts were a bit long.
One word: essential.
I wish there were downloadable materials. I ended up pausing and taking screenshots of various images along the way. Downloadable materials would have been very nice. In fact, many $10.99 udemy courses include them, and I was surprised this one didn't.
This is a good course, and if half stars were allowed I'd give it a 4.5 overall.
As a copywriter, I knew and had implemented many of the concepts shared. Nevertheless, this course was concise and packaged knowledge learned from dozens of books in just 7 lessons. I do recommend it for both amateur and experienced writers!
Great course. We need a transcript.
Really great course, simple and precise information, also the guy teaching was really comfortable to listen to and a great story teller. (can't remember his name)
A course that turns whimpering into “Wow!!”ing.
If you want to kickstart your writing gig, polish your writing skills, or understand why you wiki-walk(ish), this is the place to start.
I loved the candid, honest and actionable advice in this course. Any serious content writer owes it to themselves to take the course
Absolutely Awesome Content!!!! Thank You!
Good course with very helpful information about writing to grab a reader's attention and drive them to take action.
3 C´s :)
"Stories That Sell: 7 Secrets To Create Killer Content" blew me away. The secrets included in this course were really detailed, and provided great insight. I really appreciate how Jon paints vivid pictures for us with his own writing and shares examples of how each secret can be translated into killer content. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to elevate their content.
Amazing experience I was hooked and completed in one sitting!
A great fluff-free course. By the time I finished the second course, I felt confident that I made a great investment. I saw some flaws in my current strategies and immediately knew how to fix them.
It's an excellent course. I have learned incredible and practical tips that will help me improve my writing process.
Great course, for me being a new in the game of content creation and story telling I got a great deal
I liked the entire course, wish there were more examples and illustrations.
Great content ! Full of information with short videos but straight to the point!
Very good course, one that can be used as a tool. You can always go back for pointers! A couple of handouts would have been nice; I found myself taking a lot of screenshots so that I would have to keep going back to the tape.
Good Course, great tips!
Great tips and advice to becoming a successful content writer and marketer - amazing value for money and a worthy investment.
Amazing! The content was made into a bunch of tiny bite-sized pieces so I could do one quiz a day.
He was easy to understand and I am very excited to practice his advice in my blogs.
Loved the brief clips packed with tools and examples. Loved John's energy and enthusiasm.
Great course filled with useful tips. While taking the course, I made updates to website copy using the Hemingway app. I also created a few blog titles and headlines with the help of the headline tool. I look forward to applying more of these tips to my writing.
There were some pieces of advice that didn't apply to the type of content I write. For instance, if we're not writing about a "product" per se. Otherwise, it was immensely helpful.
The biggest issue is not having the ability to refer back to the content in any way other than watching the videos. it would be nice to have summaries
The course is short, but memorable. I look forward to trying out every tip. I'm pretty sure the advice is excellent.
Jon laid out a path of clear, actionable steps to follow that I have not seen anywhere else... This course is a game changer. Thank you to Fivver and Jon!
Bright and wonderful ideas, just like a box of hidden treasures waiting to be discovered... smiles!
Jon did an excellent job. This course is full of surprises for those who really want to excel in content writing or marketing.
Really impressed by the course content. Learned a lot of things.
The author presented several eye-opening points.
Loved the content, was left starving for more.
Loved it. I actually learned some valuable tips which I will be able to apply immediately. Great conversational teaching style, and very accessible throughout.
I was blown away by the precise way Jon presented the concepts. He is extremely clear and very effective in the way he delivers the core concepts of writing a great story. Loved the course.
I've spent so much money to try to find this exact information in this course. This is exactly what I needed to help me to put together great content for my blog and for anything else I choose to write in the future. Thank you so much!
Great content and presentation!
Very well put together. This course is a gold mine for beginners and a great add-on for more experienced writers.
Brilliant course and was well presented! Thank you very much.
Distilled practical wisdom - simply awesome!
Really nice guy :) I learned a few valuable things from this course.
Excellent information for anyone who wants to write impactful and lastingly relevant content. I loved the tool suggestions he gave to help with analysis of reading level and headlines as well as the real world advice on how to get your writing published in larger publications. This one tip was worth the whole course for me as this is one of my big goals for this year.
Brilliant course. I'm a journalist myself and this refresher was a godsend.
This course is very informative and very valuable since the author shares his own way of working. Learned a lot from this course. Thank you! :)
Great content, simple indeed.
Becoming a 7th grader again!
I like the course, came to know about it after connecting with Jon on LinkedIn
The concept is clear! , the easiest way to state is " the more educated you are, the more we complicate Simple Stuff"
Just writing the stories which connect, which takes us on a visual journey & which we are familiar with is the key in writing!
I am glad we got connected & I went for my first course on fiverr with yours
Great content, great delivery and absolutely engaging.
