Quantico (Singapore) Copywriting, Content Marketing and Web-Writing Workshops and Courses

Copywriting Workshops + Courses (Singapore).

copywriting • document structures • design-thinking • reading strategies • customers + consumers • meaningful connections

An ISO 9001:2015 Certified Organisation

Copywriting connects texts with people in meaningful ways that influence decisions and shape attitudes.


Introduction to Copywriting focuses on how to write and visualise consumer-driven content (brochures, websites, social media posts, taglines, brand articles) through balancing textual literacies with graphical vocabularies. From writing websites and social posts to designing document structures, planning user-journeys, and changing mindsets, this workshop looks at the politics, histories, psychologies, and philosophies of rhetoric and persuasion — and the applications of these copywriting principles to growing consumer literacy, sales and engagement for your content. Quantico Communications LLP is an ISO 9001:2015 Certified Organisation. This workshop has undergone and been certified by international quality assurance testing and audit.

Copywriting Workshop Overview.

How we read and process novels and biographies differs from how we consume copy in a brochure, or in social media posts, search listings, websites, and digital and physical retail spaces.

Simply put, copywriting is about making content desirable by integrating consumer psychology with several disciplines including marketing, product design, social media, and user-experience. This workshop responds to the sharpening demand for establishing meaningful connections between brands and their audiences.

Textual and graphical literacies combine to create powerful physical and digital landscapes that ground your branded content in accessibility, credibility, and authority.

Future of Copywriting and Content in 2020 and 2025

Professional copywriting takes a contractual-experience to influencing consumer mindsets. This workshop welcomes content creators to copywriting spaces in myriad shapes, forms, channels, and precepts. For all its ubiquity, copywriting always comprises a set of texts, designed to fulfil a specific purpose. Introduction to Copywriting looks at the purpose of writing to sell, and investigates copywriting from a variety of communicative and psychological perspectives.

Workshop Takeaways.

Copywriting isn’t just writing, and selling isn’t only for products and services. In this copywriting workshop, we investigate the interdisciplinarity and application of professional copywriting, and understand why the copywriting process (ideation) begins in the minds of creators, and always ends in the minds of readers (creation). We will examine the relationships between words and content, and content and consumers. You will create copywriting briefs that use consumer philosophy and social psychology to polish your drafts into professional pieces that turn passive recipients into captive audiences. You will also test your copywriting pieces across a number of different markets and mindsets to validate the true impact of your copy on your internal and external stakeholders. There are no conditions or pre-requisites for attending this workshop.

Workshop Learning Objectives.

On completion of this workshop you will be able to:

• Create content that serves specific consumer purposes

• Build meaningful relationships between brands and buyers

• Think in design-led perspectives to reach creative solutions

• Extend content beyond words, to sound and visual

• Prepare experiential pieces to engage digital communities

• Apply consumer psychology across your content assets

• Start your own copywriting and content initiatives

Beyond Your Copywriting Workshop.

Support doesn’t stop when the workshop is over. You will understand and continue to use the copywriting process on a professional level, and deliver core content innovation that builds strong commercial value for businesses and individuals. Your skill sets and assignments over the course of the copywriting workshop will involve examining the market in Singapore and the region for visual and aural cues on how words construct relationships with minds. At the end of this copywriting workshop you will be able to take control of the copywriting process in its entirety, and see that professional copywriting is not a group of powerful words, but a powerful group of words.
