During the past 20 years as a freelance copywriter, writer and editor*, I’ve seen a definite (and sad) decline in people’s ability to write for–and at–work. At the same time, I’ve watched the frustration level of managers and bosses escalate, because they know their employees are communicating poorly–but they don’t know how to fix it.
I do. I’m Sharon Ernst. And I’m done sitting on the sidelines watching weak business writing become the norm when I know people can do better. So I started BetterFasterWriter.com to help people learn effective business writing skills–and be better, faster writers.
My approach–based on 20 years as a freelance copywriter
Even in our tech-driven world, we need the written word–and solid writing skills. But how boring does that sound? It’s not boring with me. I take my two decades of experience in writing compelling, persuasive copy and apply those techniques to everyday business writing. That makes the content more interesting and the lessons more fruitful, as you learn to not only write better and faster, but more persuasively too.
Good writers are made, not born. Wherever you think your skills fall today, you can be a better, faster writer tomorrow. Check out all the ways to learn to get started.
