How about right here? Right now?

pencil pic shadow

If you're reading this page (and look! you ARE), chances are HIGH that like hundreds of bright entrepreneurs I've had the chance to work with:

YOU'VE GOT THE IDEAS, BUT YOU'RE STRUGGLING TO FIND THE WORDS.

What you've got feels boring.

Awkward.

Not YOU.

What you need is someone to help you DIY with style. Page-by-blank-white-page.

 Amiright? Sweet.

BECAUSE THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I DO.

And "I" am Nikki, BTW - that's me over there biting a perfectly good No. 2 pencil. >> 

Nice to meet you ;)

“Nikki is fantastic…I absolutely love this girl. Not only does she write amazing copy for her own business, but she teaches copy in a way that you can really understand…she really breaks it down in a way that’s very doable.”

- Amy Porterfield

Social Media Strategist, AmyPorterfield.com

Seriously though. Any of this sound familiar?

WHEN IT COMES TO WRITING YOUR SITE + COMMUNICATING YOUR VALUE, YOU'RE:

Stuck at the starting line (in eternal draft mode).

Overwhelmed by all the possible (wildly creative or totally strategic) ways you could approach each page.

Unsure how much to share, where to share it, and how to share it in a way that make sense.

SO. tired of making excuses + "it's not done yet!" disclaimers (because you KNOW it's not doing anything for you).

YOU *WANT* TO BECOME A BETTER WRITER BECAUSE YOU:

Realize that YOU need to be your own best spokesperson - in life and in business.

Don’t want to pay thousands of dollars to wait for someone to write or update a page, offer, or opt-in you may want to change next week.

Believe that as the voice of your business your audience wants to hear from YOU.

Understand that effective communication leads to more customers, more profit, more confidence, and more CHOICES. (And as a boss, you like choices.)

ORRR MAYBE YOU JUST THINK IT'D BE FUN TO LEARN FROM + WITH! A WORD NERD LIKE ME.

(That's perfectly legit too.)

IF ANY OF THE ABOVE DESCRIBE YOU, KEEP ON READING.

“ACAC is a course every online business owner needs NOW! I used to be a copywriter myself, but writing my own site felt like climbing Everest. With Nikki's help I've written a site that my crowd adores (twice!) and will continue to revisit every time I craft any comms to my peeps. Everyone needs ACAC in their pocket!”

- Laura Husson

Co-Founder, Husson Media

I've got a (fun) solution for all that.

It's called A Course About Copy,

and it'll help you write a site that:

1. Attracts your dream clients

2. Connects with them in a meaningful way

3. Makes it easy for them to buy from you

And THAT looks like:

MORE PROFIT

Because money loves clarity, and so do potential customers.

LESS STRESS

No guesswork. I'll walk you through EVERY. PAGE. of this baby.

MORE TIME

To do what you love (like working with all these new clients!).

LESS FRUSTRATION

No more blank white screens. Unless you just like blank white screens.

MORE CONFIDENCE

In conversations, public speaking, videos, and being a human in general.

And you literally don't have to take my word for it:

Chandra Scott

BEST. MONEY. SPENT. Nikki is like a mind whisperer! She eliminates the writing blocks, and her copy converts. Exactly what it’s meant to do.”

Chandra Scott, The Startup's Secret Weapon
Hanna Donnelly

"I freaking love my copy and don’t have to worry about it anymore! Absolutely recommend Nikki’s services. Times 100. Anyone that is struggling with writing needs to work with her!"

Hanna Donnelly, Wardrobe Stylist, Hanna Lee Style
Tami Cunningham

It was such a RELIEF to create something conversational with Nikki – something that felt more like ME and not something fabricated by rules. Seriously – she gets sh*t done.”

Tami Cunningham, Founder, GiftingSweet

“ACAC was by far THE BEST biz investment I made in 2014. Learning to write AND speak authentically has made way for more ease (and expansion) in my business...an invitation to become Nick Jr.’s Resident Expert in Australia, a book publisher approaching me, plus TV and media appearances and speaking invitations throughout Australia! Finding my voice and communicating with my audience has literally changed my whole business (and life) in the most profound ways.'”

What's covered in the lessons?

Lesson 1LESSON 1:

WRITING FOR DREAM CLIENTS

Before you start throwing words up on the page, you’ve gotta get clear on the basics. In Lesson 1, we’ll cover the mindset stuff that keeps SO many people from writing their sites - like writer’s block, perfectionism, self-sabotage, and the fear of (constructive) feedback. Once that's covered, we dig right into practical strategies on how to be clear, credible, conversational, and connected.

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.19.19 PMLESSON 2:

WORDROBE ESSENTIALS

Putting great outfits together is much easier when you’ve got classic WARDROBE essentials like a great pair of jeans, crisp white shirt, and little black dress at the ready. The same can be said for your WORDROBE essentials. In Lesson 2 we’ll pinpoint WHAT you’re offering, WHY you’re offering it, and WHO you actually want to offer it TO. (I’ll also share my #1 tip for getting your WHO’s attention….without ever leaving your couch.)

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.19.34 PMLESSON 3:

THE ONE SENTENCE

The right kind of prep doesn’t make you sound like a cheeseball; it makes you sound like a professional. In Lesson 3, I’ll share my tried-and-tested exercise for crafting a clear, concise answer to the Q many entrepreneurs DREAD: “Soooo, what do you do?” BONUS: Once you’ve got your sentence down, we’ll style it up so you can share it with confidence whether you’re in line at the grocery store or happily stuck in the elevator with a big whig in your industry.

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.21.16 PMLESSON 4:

HOME PAGE HOSPITALITY

Your website isn’t just your storefront; it’s your digital home. And we all know the value of a great first impression. As the host(ess) here, it’s YOUR job to lead the way for your visitors and help them know exactly where you want them to go next. In Lesson 4, I’ll walk you through creating your entire home page (from header to footer) so you know how to help the RIGHT visitors click around and stay a while.

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.24.05 PMLESSON 5:

ENOUGH ABOUT ME

The about page is the #1 concern of most folks I work with. In Lesson 5, we’ll cover how to avoid TMI and exactly what you SHOULD (or shouldn't) share to help people get to know, like, and trust the REAL you. After that, I’ll walk you through my world-famous About Page Recipe - five steps to introduce yourself (and your business) in a way that leaves people wanting to know MORE.

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.24.17 PMLESSON 6:

BLOG LIKE YOU MEAN IT

The heart of Lesson 6 is about making a connection through your regular content. If you want to actually enjoy that process, you've got to find a system that works for YOU. In this one we’ll talk about topics, format, and frequency - then we'll dig into clickable headlines, “open-me” email subject lines, and easy ways to get MORE quality conversation going on your blog.

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.24.49 PMLESSON 7:

WORK WITH ME (NO, REALLY.)

Once you’ve built relationships 'n' credibility, the natural next step is to tell people how they can work with you. In Lesson 7 I’ll tell you the four things EVERY prospective client wants to see on your sales page(s), and exactly how to give it to them using my nine-step recipe. We'll cover how to share your rates with confidence, and I'll share my favorite ways to "filter" for dream clients.

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.25.02 PMLESSON 8:

BEST OF THE REST

While the A-Team pages often get all the attention, it’s the “little” pages that can make the biggest difference in your day-to-day ops + relationship-building. In Lesson 8 I’ll share the WHY + HOW behind social proof, giving back, legal, contact, resources, thank you, and even 404 pages that represent YOU and help your visitors feel connected, protected, and cared for.

A few fun perks of your ACAC membership include...

ACAC home2LIFETIME ACCESS

When you join my ACAC fam, you're in for as lonnng as it exists. You can go through the lessons one week at a time, one month at a time, all in one day, or once a year. Totally up to you.

WorkbookTHE MOST GORGEOUS WORKBOOK I'VE EVER SEEN

If you've seen my site, you've seen what happens when I work with creative genius (+ACAC founding member!) Sarah Ancalmo. We've cooked up digi-workbook MAGIC to showcase 50+ pages of templates, resources, and sample copy to help you capture all those genius ideas...before they're ready for Wordpress. (Seriously. Homework has NEVER looked this good.)

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 10.42.54 PMIN-LESSON BONUS VIDEOS

If you're the "tell me more" type, you'll love the bonus vids I've included with Lessons 3 through 8. This extra training shows you the lesson in ACTION - including walkthroughs of my OWN site pages, past and present, a really nerdy DIY-PowerPoint-graphics tutorial (I made every graphic you see here in PPT!), and actual clips from previous ACAC office hours.

 

Study HallEXCLUSIVE MEMBERSHIP TO ACAC STUDY HALL

In our private, members-only ACAC Facebook community, you'll have 24/7/365 access to my gorgeous tribe of hundreds of dream students - led by the fearless class president, my sister Stacey.

THE WARM FUZZY OF GIVING

I give 10% of my income to for-purpose organizations I believe in (like Pencils of Promise and Feeding America). One of the sweetest perks of your ACAC investment is that when we finish funding a second school for kiddos in Guatemala, or buy much-needed food for families across the U.S. - you'll know YOU played an integral part in that.  Amazing, right??

Tania Mercer

I was easily able to express what I was all about and how I can help my clients in way that makes sense to them, and that's priceless!”

Business Coach, Your Super Awesome Life

And in case we haven't met yet...

Hi :) I'm Nikki (Elledge Brown).

pixabout

I’m a Texas girl, born and raised, now living in beautiful Hawaii.

I’m also a proud military wife and toddler mom with a special knack for (and a couple of degrees in) communication.

I spent seven years as a part-time college professor and three fabulous years serving as a park ranger at Pearl Harbor (and the USS Arizona Memorial) before launching my own business in April 2013.

Less than three years later, that business has generated over $750,000 in revenue, over 20,000 (lovely) subscribers, and more valuable lessons than I have time to share in my (most) weekly blog posts.

AND THAT'S WHY I CREATED A COURSE ABOUT COPY.

This course is like my thesis project. (Or a really fun dissertation.)

I’ve taken everything I’ve learned through 10 years of formal communication studies and two+ WILD and crazy years in this world of online business and streamlined it into EIGHT lessons that you could watch in one afternoon if you wanted to.

This course isn't about ME talking. It's about YOU writing. I'll give you a little why, a LOT of how, and send you on your way.

And the methods + recipes I share in ACAC aren't trendy. They're timeless, sensical ways to communicate with an audience you care about, and because of that - they will NEVER go out of style.

When you've got a clear HOW behind each page, this whole "write your site" thing can be simple. Even fun. 

And I'd LOVE the chance to prove that to you.

"In a word, Nikki is a SUPERSTAR. She helped me get clear on my message, and she turned one key piece of copy into a brilliant read – yet it was still “me.”  The input she gave has helped drive all of my other communications and turned what I was doing on its head (in a good way!)"

Wendy Mak, Stylist | Author | Coach
Lisa O'Brien

"I’ve worked with some rockstars in this field, and I’ve gotta say: Nikki’s part magic, part mindreader. Like an IV of clarity, momentum, and I-get-you. The absolutely perfect, how-did-you-write-like-I-talk tagline and byline was unreal. Highly recommend!"

Lisa O'Brien, Founder, LifeYum
Aleishia James

"She wasn’t there to manufacture “my” message. She was there to help me discover it. My voice, input, and ideas were critical to the process. Seriously. If you’re ready to build your business and learn how to write with flair, she’s the one to call."


 

Aleishia James, Founder, Firehorse Coaching

“Loved every SECOND! I'm 1,000% clearer on what my message is and what I'll be offering. Now I've got copy that speaks directly to the clients I absolutely adore working with. I'm on cloud nine just thinking about it.”

Still not quite sure?

ACK! I JUST STARTED A "NO NEW COURSES" DIET...

Trust your intuition on this one. I do NOT want to be a source of course remorse for you (or anyone). Ever.

That said, I sincerely believe that writing your site in a clear, engaging way is an IMMEDIATE need. I genuinely don’t see effective communication skills as something we can afford to put off (literally or figuratively).

Why? Because your site is your 24/7/365 storefront. Whether you love it or not, while you sleep, your home page is creating a lasting first impression for new visitors. Your about page is introducing you + your business to potential clients. Your work with me page is sealing the deal for you...or not.

If you’re not communicating your message in smart, authentic way, you’re missing out on dream clients with EVERY click. I can help you with that. Starting today.

WHAT IF I'M NOT 100% WHO MY AUDIENCE IS YET? WILL ACAC HELP ME FINE TUNE THAT?

Two answers for you:

1. Yes, because your writing won't be effective until you know who you're writing TO. In Lesson 2, I share my "Dream Client Profile" (two super-simple Qs) and guidance on why, where, and HOW to connect with them
in a way they can relate to.

2. No, because (from what I know from working with hundreds of entrepreneurs) you won't be 100% on who your audience is until you actually start connecting with + working with people. And as YOU and your offers grow + change, that audience will grow + change too.

In other words - the fastest way to figure that out is to put yourself out there. Throw some (smart, thoughtful) spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks.

Do that, and you can't go wrong!

CAN I REALLY DO THIS (WRITE MY OWN COPY)?

YES, dude. You can. You gotta.

Because if someone asks you a question about you, your business, or your offer in real-time, you don't have time to call a lifeline. It's your JOB to be your own best spokesperson.

(And I would LOVE to help you with that.)

ACAC isn't just about writing copy. (I know, I know, the title.) But as you've probably heard me say - my experience, education, and my approach are centered on effective communication in GENERAL. What you'll learn in here applies to writing, speaking, video, and everyday conversations too (as Kristy said in the vid above).

Again: If you want to PAY a better communicator, ACAC is NOT for you.

If you want to BECOME a better communicator, what are you waiting for? :)

SO IF I'VE GOT A PRODUCT-BASED BUSINESS, IT WILL HELP ME TOO?

I used to tell my (college) students on the first day of the semester: No matter who you are or what you do, EVERYONE can benefit from improved communication skills.

And that's what this course (and just about everything I do) is about. Communication and CONNECTION. (By way of clear, concise about pages + blog posts ;))

That said - I want to be absolutely SURE I've got you covered from header to footer.

I worked closely with product-based members of the ACAC Class of 2014 to create "ACAC for Products" - a full on course companion filled with practical tips + inspiration to help you apply ACAC principles to everything from product descriptions to your blog strategy.

Here's just some of the feedback I've received so far:

This bonus for product based biz's is AMAZING! I have been clicking around looking at all of the links you included and there is SO MUCH inspiration in there. I can't really think of anything else to add right now as I am only up to my ABOUT page.

I honestly thought I had my homepage finished, but I am going back to my developer/designer to ask for a few more edits after reading this.

I. LOVE. IT.

I can tell you have totally done your research and it is such a good resource.

You should consider selling this separately as its own workbook like you did for your other components of ACAC!!!! I would buy it :)

Congrats and a massive THANK YOU!

I can really tell how much work you put into this and I can't wait to dive into it again when I can put it to work!

So to you, product-based biz owner, I say: If it feels right for you to join, do it. I would actually love your feedback on this bonus and will be HAPPY to fill in any gaps I can by adding to our FAQ bank :)

DO I REALLY HAVE TIME TO TAKE THIS ON?

ACAC Kendrick amazing one day rocksI'd actually flip that Q around:

Do you really have time to look at 50 different ways to write an about page?

Analyze 100 different sales pages to check for the common threads? Nah. And you don't need to.

The recipes I share in ACAC are pure and simple training wheels designed to SAVE you all that time and frustration as you're writing + refining your site.

They've been tried + tested by hundreds of my clients + students in the past year - and they work. Because they make SENSE. (That's my #1 filter.) Most of my dream students are busy mamas like me.

We want to get in, get what we need, and get MOVIN'.

So ACAC isn't about ME talking. It's about YOU writing.

The average lesson is under 23 minutes long (and you have lifetime access), so - YEP. You've got time. And you can come back again and again, as often as you need to.

YES, BUT WILL I ACTUALLY DO IT??

Well I don't know, friend...WILL YOU?

I taught college courses for SEVEN years before starting my business. I'll tell you what I told my students: What you put into this is what you'll get out of it.

Online learning requires self-discipline.

Nobody's making you log in each day. You're not getting kicked out of your fave extra-curricular activity if you fall behind on your homework.

But we are ABSOLUTELY here to encourage you along the way.

You've got a delightful built-in support group in our private Facebook community ACAC Study Hall. You've seen the quality of folks I attract over there in the Summer School group, right? Well the first 70+ members of are the cream of the crop. SO lovely. PLUS, my sister Stacey recently joined the team as our "Class President" - there to help me cheer you on with regular accountability challenges, check-ins, and group discussions to keep the energy positive AND productive, year-round.

And then there's the in-house, 24/7 pep rally - an entire PAGE dedicated to music, videos, quotes, and inspiration to keep you going, dancing, laughing, whatEV when you're having a tough day.

Oh yeah. Then there's that bonus lesson specifically designed to help you bust through writer's block, overwhelm, and/or resistance when they come along.

Bottom line: If you participate, you'll be supported. If you WANT to do this, you will. 

SO TEMPTING! BUT....FINANCES.

This one's tricky because it's usually a symptom of something else. (Because logically you know great copy means more clients + customers, which is FAB for your finances.)

If this one's still holding you up after I've shared ALL of the above with you, we're looking at two possibilities:

1. You can't put your finger on WHY, but it's not the right fit. If the energy's off, it's easy to think it's imaginary money stuff. SOLUTION: Go with your gut! No worries here. ACAC is our collective happy place, so I genuinely only want you to join if + when it feels RIGHT for you.

2. You KNOW you want in, but you legitimately don't have the funds right now. SOLUTION: Decide if it feels right to take the leap (+ trust you'll earn your money back), OR rest easy knowing that I'm not going anywhere - and neither is ACAC. orrrr, you could just read this :) Screen Shot 2014-08-23 at 4.16.22 PM Screen Shot 2014-08-23 at 4.16.50 PM

OKAY I'M 95% SURE. WHAT ELSE YOU GOT?

Sweet! If you're almost sure you're ready (just need a friendly nudge off the fence), here's a list of reassurance for you:

1. Clear, engaging copy directed to YOUR dream clients will make you money. Fact. (One client of mine sold over $24k in services within a WEEK of our session!)

2. I’m not giving you a fish. I’m teaching you how to fish. Instead of paying a great copywriter thousands every time you need an update, you will be equipped to share your OWN message and adapt as needed.

3. You will save HOURS (weeks? months?) of frustration and overwhelm by trying to figure out what to put where (and HOW) on your own.

4. Getting super-clear on your message (+ how to share it in a way that makes SENSE) will give you confidence that translates to speaking, video, and everyday conversations.

5. You know my teaching style by now. If you like my free stuff, you will LOVE ACAC.

6. I attract a SUPERB quality of human beings. The ACAC community is and will always be first-class.

7. I see this ACAC community like a digi-family, and I share what I learn VERY freely.

8. I am a serial tweaker and will ALWAYS look for ways to increase the value of this baby. Joining now ensures you benefit from each and every update (at the first-round rate).

9. A full $100 of your registration will help build a school for cuties in Guatemala this year. (Amazing.) 10. This isn’t just a course. It’s part of my calling.

And I would LOVE to share it with you.

Friend. Do you see you have NOTHING to lose here? And a whole lot of goodness to gain?

“ACAC has been like a life-line for me, truly! Since diving in and learning about the purpose of each page AND how to write each page, I have experienced a complete shift in my business. Within days of rewriting my "about me" copy, I was contacted by an event organizer to speak at a conference that will host over 3000 women (my biggest audience EVER!). She literally said, "I never book people that I haven't heard speak in person, but after reading your website, I knew I had to have you, so I'm making an exception!" AMAZING!! ”
