The course gave me the technical side of SEO writing, which is all new to me.
My tutor was really good. I wouldn't have been this confident in completing the course, if it wasn't for her. It was great working with her. The course content is ample to introduce someone to this field.
The course met my expectations and more. I can now confidently write SEO content, and have gained a lot of knowledge about webwriting. I learned about webwriting techniques, ideas for articles, where to upload articles, and how to source keywords.
I wanted to learn how to write content that would optimise my website for SEO and in order to find extra work as a content writer. The course definitely met my expectations. Thank you. The tutorial support and course content were excellent.
I really enjoyed this course, my second with CMP, and I found the CMP team, as always, helpful and supportive. I have already signed up to a further two courses. The tutorial support was very supportive and gave constructive feedback.
The course entirely surpassed my expectations. The feedback and encouragement I received throughout has been outstanding. I say this as both a former tutor and student. Few learning providers deliver the attention that CMP do.
I enrolled on this course to improve my understanding of SEO. The course gave me knowledge of how Google works, and the tutor support I received from Justine was excellent. I would recommend this course to anyone!

Elle | Chat | TV Times | The Express | Liberate Media
I am a tutor on CMP’s copywriting course, and its lifestyle and magazine journalism courses.
I have worked both for myself and for other people. As a professional copywriter, I have experience in running integrated campaigns combining PR, social media and developing content.
I am a copywriting and PR consultant for Liberate Media, and run client-based services incorporating social media, blogging and copywriting.
I have B2B experience and deliver content across a range of social media platforms. I also have experience with B2C development across a broad base of clients.
I am also an entertainment, health and travel journalist and editor with over 20 years’ experience.
I also regularly work for the Express’ Saturday magazine, as well as their weekend travel section, writing both features and celebrity Q and As. I contribute Life As I Know It Q and As to S Magazine.
I began my career as a researcher on Elle before working my way up through teen magazines such as Just 17, and women’s magazines such as Chat and Women’s Weekly, before ending up as features editor on TV Times.
From there, via a brief stint of freelance work again, I worked as the senior editor on The Express’ Saturday magazine.
I’ve interviewed the likes of Take That, shaken Bruce Willis’ hand, and sat next to Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox on the LA set of Friends.
I’ve still yet to find a better job than this one. Whether I’m talking to David Coulthard about F1, or Jerry Springer about his travel plans, there is nothing better than pulling a story together from a 20-minute chat.
My love of entertainment, whether it’s TV, music, books or films has afforded me an enjoyable, sometimes unpredictable but never dull career.
I am a member of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ).
