Some of the companies that train their teams at CXL Institute:

Are you frustrated (or even embarrassed) by your website’s clunky, confusing sales copy?

You’re not alone.

As a marketer, you know that having a strong value proposition & relevant messaging is critical for maximizing conversions.

But knowing this doesn’t make writing them any easier.

Pinpointing what’s uniquely valuable about your product? That’s hard enough. Figuring out how to convey this value in words that convert … That can seem damn-near impossible.

  • Conduct a conversion-focused copy teardown of your sales page.

    In just a few minutes, identify and prioritize ways to improve your sales page copy. Access part of this lesson for free.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

But crafting high-converting value propositions and perfecting your sales page copy doesn’t have to be a painful, frustrating ordeal

You don’t need to start writing by staring haplessly at a blank page.

What you do need is a step-by-step framework for turning those dry product specs into stellar, sticky sales copy. You need a repeatable, research-driven framework you & your team can come back to again and again.

… Which is precisely why we created this course.

After taking this course, you’ll:

  • Know how to systematically “tear down” & rebuild the copy of virtually any sales page
  • Nail your messaging through rigorous voice-of-customer research
  • Ditch the clichés and infuse your copy with authenticity & passion
    Weave your messages together into a story that sells
  • Choose messages that trigger your customers’ real-life motivations
  • Craft value propositions that capture visitors’ attention & pull them in

See how elite copywriters go from asking questions … to analyzing research … to creating messaging flows … to crafting the final copy.

PLUS: Get a complete kit of conversion-copywriting worksheets, templates & checklists along with the course, so you can immediately transfer & apply everything you’ve learned into your own business.

The most complete copywriting course I’ve attended so far. Aside being a difficult methodology to implement thoroughly (quite taxing on time and nerves), certainly the most air-tight approach to squeezing every last drop of copy’s power to convert.

This course is packed with gold! Momoko is an awesome teacher – I took the course late so only got access to recordings, and even with that, I am able to use every bit of it in my deliverable.

Learn how to fix your value propositions, product messaging & sales page copy … in just 9 sessions

Got a sales page or website that needs a serious messaging makeover?

Bring it to class and apply what you learn immediately as conversion copywriting maven Momoko Price reveals the exact process she uses to optimize messaging & page copy for enterprises, agencies & startups like Intuit, MetaLab, and Respondly (recently acquired by Buffer).

This course is right for you if…

  • You’re in charge of marketing, drive traffic to key landing pages (including your homepage), and feel like you just can’t get the needle moving
  • You’re tired of taking an ineffective “spaghetti” approach to your messaging (a.k.a. throwing random ideas around & seeing what sticks)
  • You suspect (or know) that your sales page copy … well, sucks (hallmarks of sucky sales page copy: persistently low conversion rate, +60% bounce rate, visitors fail to scroll, few CTA clicks)
  • Your team desperately needs a clear, structured, documented process for sales-page copywriting it can go back to again & again

This has been one of the most valuable courses I’ve taken. Providing content guidance to customers can be particularly challenging but Momoko’s approach provided us a clear and testable framework to apply in our consultations. Our results have been profound and our customers understand our copy goals. What used to be a a challenging undertaking is now a collaborative exercise in understanding customer experience and turning those insights into targeted messaging! I highly recommend this course to digital marketers, copywriters, and conversion optimizers. Copy-first design FTW!
