Write it Rich! Tips for Reluctant Writers
Longer class, more content, all for $65*

What’s the secret to writing benefit-based marketing copy that GRABS attention and DRIVES sales? There isn’t one. It’s actually a 3-step process, and one you can learn in just 3 hours. Write it Rich! Tips for Reluctant Writers shows you how.

In this class:
Learn – how to sell the benefit of your product or service so you make more money.
Discover – why the intangibles of your business story are your most potent sales tool.
Leave – with a benefit-based mini ad. You’ll learn the difference between “what you do” and how to describe your business so “others benefit.”

The Entrepreneurial Spirit at MCNW

February 8, 2010 Leave a comment

We had another one of our monthly get-togethers on January 28th. Twenty or so clients came, with food and stories to share. Chris Bucci, a loan client and the creator of the ubiquitous Heart in Oregon stickers, dropped in and talked about his experience starting up a business, and what it means for him to be an entrepreneur.

We also had the lovely music of Autopilot is for Lovers, whose lead singer Arienna Hatfield is also a Mercy Corps Northwest client.

With all this talent, it’ll be easy to keep these events going, and we’re looking forward to the next one.
