Business Blogging e-Course and Coaching Program
Learn How to Enchant Your Readers (and Win More Clients!)
How many blog posts have you read about writing?
How many books?
And how confident are you about your writing skills?
Most of us are unhappy with our writing.
We’ve learned how to write at school. If we’re lucky we learned how to spell and avoid grammar mistakes. But we weren’t taught how to engage our readers, how to keep their attention, how to persuade and inspire.
You can learn how to write well.
You can learn how to create an enchanting blog to engage prospects, boost your authority, and ultimately win more business.
And you know what?
Learning how to write is surprisingly straightforward
First, you need to understand and practice the 3 foundations of good writing: Empathy for your reader, choosing the right words, and creating rhythm. Once you understand these foundations, you find it easier to self-edit your content and to make drab writing sparkle. Your voice becomes stronger, more personal, more like YOU.
Next, you need to learn how to be persuasive: How to draw attention, how to keep your readers spellbound, and how to inspire them with your words. This requires a basic understanding of reader psychology and an ability to create a hypnotic flow.
Lastly, you need to learn a few creative tricks, like how to add a dash of personality with metaphors and how to tell mini-stories. We’re all creative, and this is the most fun part of learning how to write.
Everyone can learn how to write better. And learn it quite quickly. The only problem is that most of us try to learn how to write from books. But here’s a question for you …
How many books have you read and implemented the advice?
Unfortunately, most online courses suffer from the same problem. You may feel demotivated. Overwhelmed. Confused.
Because most courses dump information. They don’t teach. They don’t help you learn a skill.
What if a program existed that broke writing skills down into doable techniques? Without wasting your time? What if you had the opportunity to practice each technique and gain valuable feedback from an expert?
You’d accelerate your learning.
You’d surprise yourself by writing engaging content. In your voice.
And writing would instantly be a whole lot more fun.
I took other courses in the past. After I paid for them and got the materials, I was left alone to do the rest, not knowing if I’m getting it right. In this course, Henneke was guiding me hand in hand, giving me personalized feedback on every assignment, answering every question I had.

You learn writing techniques one by one.
Relevant and doable assignments help you apply and reinforce your new skills. You get feedback from a pro—you learn precisely what you’re doing right and what you can improve.

The practice activities are well designed. They save time, because they focus on how you’re most likely to develop your skills. And Henneke has natural coaching skills. She offers consistently helpful and encouraging comments. I’m impressed.
~ Rebecca Wallace, Learning and Development Professional
You may think you need a large dose of self-motivation and discipline to learn a new skill.
But this is far from the truth.
You need a good learning system that keeps you motivated.
The assignments in the course were such a fun blend of creativity and discipline that I found myself eager to sink my teeth into them. The meticulous outlines, cheat sheets, tips, and suggestions took the anxiety out of tackling the assignments. It was a pleasure to sit down and do the work. I also found the further I got in the course and the more feedback I received, the more excited I became about writing again.
~ Alissa Robson, Web Producer
Some courses are open-ended. You do the work when you find time.
But when will you find time?
In the Enchanting Business Blogging course, you practice your writing skills each week. You develop a regular writing habit. Because that’s the best way to learn.
You find a supportive group of other business bloggers on the course. By sharing assignments in the same week, you accelerate your learning.
Of course, life sometimes intervenes. We’re all busy business people. That’s why the program has allocated specific weeks for catching up. So you don’t miss any valuable learning.
What will you learn?
You learn the foundations of good writing. You learn how to gain and keep reader’s attention. You learn how to engage, persuade, and inspire with your words.
You learn to:
- get rid of a dull corporate voice and turn drab text into enchanting content
- compose headlines that attract attention and arouse curiosity
- write engaging blog posts that your readers love to share
- position your blog as a must-read resource for potential clients
