Write Me, I’m Yours

And your website.
(And it’s what I want to show you how to do: Write your whole website. In one day.)
Write Me, I’m Yours. That’s what I hear your website whispering to you. (I’m all psychic like that.)
And I’ve got another prediction, too.
If you already have a website, I can tell you the most popular, well-trafficked page on your website.
Or, if you’re still working on your website, I can tell you which of your still-imaginary-but-forthcoming pages will be most popular.
(And…for all the effort you put into your ravishing, ever-renewing stream of blog posts, it’s probably not a blog post. Alas.)
Nope, it’s not a blog post. It’s a fixed page. It’s the page almost every one of your readers will actually read.
(Also known as your “About” page or “About+Contact” page.)
If you’ve already got a site, go ahead and check your analytics. Your About page will rank HIGH.
It’s the page EVERYONE reads. It’s the first page a new visitor to your blog will check out and it’s the last page a buyer examines before clicking the “buy me” button.
So it’s the one you’ve got to get right.
You’ve got to write a wildly effective bio AND then you’ve got write all the other pages of your website.
But that’s a lot of pressure, right? And pressure isn’t helping you write your way there.
To excellence, achievement, meaning, money, fame, fortune, groupies.
Or maybe that’s just my wishlist.
When I first launched my blog, I was nearly incapacitated – blocked, blocked, blocked – by the pressure to get the fixed pages (not the blog posts) right.
So I dilly-dallied and didn’t do much of anything about them for seven months. And then I wrote the whole thing in a day. FINALLY.
But darlin’ you’re not waiting seven months to write your website. You can do it in a day. And it will be really, really, really good. Like, professional-copywriter-quality good.
I’ll show you how.
1. Every other day for one month, you’ll receive 14 writing exercises by e-mail.
2. You’ll do the exercise. It will take you anywhere from five minutes to half an hour to complete the exercise.
[And...you'll like the exercises. They're (seemingly) self-indulgent and fun. You know those facebook "25 Things About Me" lists that are so seductive? It's that kind of all-about-me-easy fun. Yum.]
[All of these exercises amount to me going all Mr. Miyagi on your ass. With each completed task, you'll wax on, wax off...and thereby build the skills necessary to triumph in your awesome undertaking aka writing your entire website.]
4. And then, at the end of the month and after completing a minimum of fourteen exercises, you’ll meet with the rest of the Karate-kid gang (all the other Write Me, I’m Yours students + moi + a few special guests) to workshop the results of all those exercises into…
…ALL THE COPY FOR YOUR ENTIRE WEBSITE.
(Capitalization trulymadlydeeply warranted.)
Yep, at the end of this one-day workshop, you’ll have completed your
And, if you do the bonus exercises, you could also end up creating your
Let’s say it again: YOU WILL CREATE ALL THE COPY FOR YOUR ENTIRE WEBSITE in one day.
And it will be good. Really good. Professional-copywriting-quality good. As I might have mentioned before.
Because I’m going to make you do all the exercises I make my copywriting clients – the ones who pay me to create their copy – do. You’ll do those exercises and along the way create copy to work with.
And then we’ll work with it in a one-day workshop wherein I’ll show you how to piece together that copy you’ve crafted (as a result of the 14 exercises you’ve completed) into 3-5 compelling and wildly effective fixed website pages.
So if you don’t yet have your dream site, or haven’t yet finished it, or haven’t finished it the way you want to finish it…let’s get you to finish it. You need to finish it. You need to write it. Well.
Can you see it? Do you hear it? That’s your website whispering again. Write Me, I’m Yours.
Of course it’s not a coincidence. It’s what your website wants, it’s what you need and it’s what I want you to have. That’s why I created these exercises and this course…so you could finally write your website.
Write Me, I’m Yours: How to Write Your One Wild and Precious Website…In a Day consists of
(they vary from one-topic writing prompts to guided reflections to fill-in-the-blanks statements to drafting dating-ish profiles for your website, all of which might sound simple and frivolous but results in seriously excellent prose, promise.)
followed by a
You’ll receive and complete a minimum of fourteen exercises – I’ll send you more, but fourteen of them are absolutely essential and therefore MANDATORY (that was my inner dominatrix coming out to play, isn’t she cute?) - and attend a one-day online workshop to transform your exercise results into 3-5 website pages (bio, subscribe, sales/services + landing page and manifesto).
And you’ll build skills and save money. Lots of both.
Because if you hired a professional copywriter to write your website, you’d pay $1,000 – $1,500 -
for example, I charge $450 for a bio and $350 for every other page
- and you wouldn’t be any closer to being a better writer or be able to sustain that level of professional copy without spending more moolah.
So this course will help you DIY your prose without having DIY results…and be able to sustain your copy quality, too. Because by doing these exercises and workshopping the results, you’ll improve your writing skills.
(Give or take a month of exceptionally directed, intentional writing exercises and prompts).
September 13, 2012 – You’ll start receiving writing exercises every other day by e-mail…and you’ll complete them. Yes you will.
Saturday October 13, 2012 - You’ll join the six-hour (9am to 3pm PST) all-day workshop by clicking a link that connects you with the session OR using your phone to call in toll-free.
Yes, I’m IN!
Please sign me up for Write Me, I’m Yours: How to Write Your One Wild and Precious Website…In a Day

Online, that is.

in just a day. And fourteen easy exercises.
Onward! To the 14 exercises, all-day online workshop, and your website, oh my!
