Looking to become a better writer?

By improving your writing skills, you can

  • Get a promotion

    Communication skills are critical to a business's success. Your writing may be holding you back and preventing you from getting the recognition, pay, or position you deserve!

  • Move into a new job or industry

    Separate yourself from other candidates by developing impressive writing skills. You'll be able to write a stronger cover letter, better networking messages, and demonstrate that you are a great communicator that the business needs for its success!

  • Put an end to complaints about your writing

    Maybe your boss marks up everything you write in red and complains about your skills. Maybe your coworkers say that your emails sound mean. Maybe your prospective customers don't reply to your messages or seem confused. You can put an end to these complaints!

  • Engage customers

    You want to grow your business, increase your leads, generate new customers, but your messages don't seem to be getting the responses you want. A few tweaks to your writing will make you sound like the competent and caring person you are and get people to write you back more frequently!

  • Meet professional development goals

    Whether you're required to maintain certifications in your field or you're annual evaluation indicated "Communication Skills" as an area for improvement, you'll benefit from refreshing your writing techniques and habits!

Our Better Business Writing course options

One course: Two ways to take it

  • Better Business Writing Pro

    A cohort coaching package. The group starts together on a set date. Each week, participants work through one module independently and turn in a writing assignment. Then the group meets together to review feedback and discuss questions. This course offers the most expert support!

  • Better Business Writing On Demand

    For those who want to start when they want, work at their own pace, and get expert feedback on their own schedule. The material is the same as Better Business Writing Pro and you'll still get written feedback on assignments from an expert. This course doesn't include weekly Q&A sessions with a group. If you want a supportive and social experience, you can add Live Coaching to your On Demand course.

Testimonials from our training sessions

One of the best resources out there!

Logan S, Sept. 9, 2020

Jenny's Business Writing course through Appendance is fantastic. Even before the completion of her course, I was able to see the immediate results of my improved business writing. I cannot emphasize enough how effective her material is at improving the day to day operations of my work. If you are looking for someone to help improve your business writing, Jenny is one of the best resources out there.

Learned a lot!

April 21, 2020

Didn't know that it takes my brain 15 minutes to proofread anything I draft up on the computer. Also taught me to multi-task between tasks and back to communication with my coworkers or supervisors. Most useful because currently with the restrictions, my main communication is through email. Showing that I can phrase what I am saying to them without offending them when giving the message back.

Have fun when you write!
