At first, I didn't expect a lot.

When I first heard of this course, I thought "uh oh, not another one." I've seen so many guides and courses on copywriting that it overwhelms me just thinking about it. However, as you might've figured out by now, I really enjoyed Peep's course. Why? Because it's simple. It goes through the copywriting process step-by-step, from beginning to end. And his advice is backed by data and science, which never hurts. Now, if you're a seasoned veteran, this may not be for you. But to be honest, I still think even more experienced people could learn a thing or two. I sure did, and I've been making a living online for almost four years. My favorite parts were in the beginning, where you learn things like how people view your content, the layout of great content, and how to keep people reading. Later, the course goes into persuasion and helping people buy what you have to offer, in an honest and ethical way. It's all interesting, and practical. All in all, I enjoyed the course and I enjoyed the step-by-step format.

Guide to Writing a High Converting Web-Page Consistently

This course teaches you about how the human eye interacts with a web-page, and what you need to do with your copy in order to get people to actually read it. The course also goes into the mechanics of persuasion, both how to persuade people with your message, and how to get people to believe your message. The course has some good examples, and talks about how to develop your value proposition. Overall, I'd recommend this course to beginners and intermediate web-marketers. This also serves as a great check-list even for advanced marketers. I'm glad I got the course, and it's worth WAY more than the asking price.

Specific and useful

Geat course! I especially like paragraphs about novelty and value proposition - very actionable and easy-to-follow advice on how I can easily make improvements to my site with very little effort:) I also started paying more attention to readability while writing blog posts, sales copy etc
