Love this training as it puts the entire road map of copywriting in clarity. The trainer Benjamin Song is a great trainer full of knowledge and experience that it makes the course so interesting.

Charles Sim

Enroling in Benjamin’s copywriting and content creation course was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my career. From start to finish, the course was an enlightening journey filled with invaluable insights and practical skills. The course curriculum was well-structured, covering everything from the fundamentals of copywriting to advanced content creation strategies.

What sets this course apart is the hands-on approach to learning. Benjamin provides real-world examples, actionable tips, and constructive feedback that helped me refine my writing skills and develop my own unique style. The interactive exercises and assignments challenged me to think creatively and push beyond my comfort zone. 

Overall, I can’t recommend Benjamin’s copywriting and content creation course enough. Thank you, Benjamin, for inspiring and equipping me with the tools I need to succeed in the world of content creation.

Course Testimonial Quote Icon
“This course provides actionable tips, is affordable and also offers post-course training support. It is good that we were not introduced to too many different online writing tools. The tips on approaches (e.g. benefits over features) and how to write effective CTAs, headlines etc. were very useful. The classes are also held in a central location which is convenient.”
