Great copywriting just got easier
It's strange to think that there was a time when only the privileged few could read or write. The rest of us relied on the spoken word. Storytelling was used to pass knowledge on from one generation to the next. Now, most of us are literate and use the written word to gather information and inform our decision making.

Increasingly we do this online, with social media and messaging enabling rapid, spontaneous global
communication. But rather than freeing us from the need for clear, effective written communication, it actually makes good communication even more important.

The less we communicate face to face, the greater the opportunity for misunderstandings. Of course, all writing communicates your message to people you cannot see and may never meet. It means you can influence more widely; it also means you must take care not to make assumptions aboutyour reader, especially those who see your public postings.

Successful copywriting is constructed from carefully selected words, each with a clear purpose. It is written to prompt feelings, thoughts or actions. It is clear, concise and at times comforting. It is also comprehensible, even to those not yet confident users of your language.

Reading this book, and following the techniques it introduces, will make you a more effective writer. Expertise in grammar is not needed as all the necessary jargon is simply defined and, anyway, some forms of business writing deliberately ignorerules. This book is for people who want to write for results.

Each of the seven chapters in Copywriting In A Week covers a different aspect:
- Sunday: Focusing your message
- Monday: Using layout, pictures and colour to make words memorable
- Tuesday: Writing effective letters
- Wednesday: Making advertising work for you
- Thursday: Communicating clearly with the media
- Friday: Preparing promotional print
- Saturday: Composing proposals and presentation visuals

Don't just make money…make a difference.

New York Times bestseller! The long-awaited book by the founder of the enormously popular Bullet Journal® organizational system.

For years Ryder Carroll tried countless organizing systems, online and off, but none of them fit the way his mind worked. Out of sheer necessity, he developed a method called the Bullet Journal that helped him become consistently focused and effective. When he started sharing his system with friends who faced similar challenges, it went viral. Just a few years later, to his astonishment, Bullet Journaling is a global movement.

The Bullet Journal Method is about much more than organizing your notes and to-do lists. It's about what Carroll calls "intentional living": weeding out distractions and focusing your time and energy in pursuit of what's truly meaningful, in both your work and your personal life. It's about spending more time with what you care about, by working on fewer things. His new book shows you how to...

  *  Track the past: Using nothing more than a pen and paper, create a clear and comprehensive record of your thoughts.

  *  Order the present: Find daily calm by tackling your to-do list in a more mindful, systematic, and productive way.

  *  Design the future: Transform your vague curiosities into meaningful goals, and then break those goals into manageable action steps that lead to big change.

Carroll wrote this book for frustrated list-makers, overwhelmed multitaskers, and creatives who need some structure. Whether you've used a Bullet Journal for years or have never seen one before, The Bullet Journal Method will help you go from passenger to pilot of your own life.
