GDI rejects the stereotypes that women and non-binary individuals aren’t interested in technology and that people can’t learn tech as adults. GDI chooses to focus on affordable education services for adults who might otherwise be unable to access tech classes, letting them know it’s never too late for them to learn. We are raising $7,200 before May to provide 10 more scholarships in 2023. Please make a donation today and support our scholarships.

Content vs Copywriting: Why It’s Important to Your Success Online

FrontEnd Classes

Thu, Apr 22, 4:00 PM (UTC)


About this event

Content and copywriting have different purposes. Content is the art of selling people on an idea, brand, or ideology. It is direct and focused on a sales-generating end-game (think brand building). It’s essential to your long-game strategy.

Copywriting is content, but content isn't necessarily copywriting.

Copywriting is informative and creative and meant to be shared. It’s clever, quick, and designed to inspire action (think sales copy). It’s vital to drive people to your business. Discover strategies for content and copy creation, learn to craft communications that get read, and leave with an understanding of how professional-level writing can build your brand and increase your revenue.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand the difference between content and copywriting
  • Key elements of a piece for communications
  • Headline
  • Voice/Tone
  • Messaging
