Why I Created This Course

You know that writing blogs or articles is a powerful way to share your ideas with the world and build your expert reputation. But it's sometimes hard to know where to start and what to talk about. And for many of us, writing blogs or articles can be a time-consuming or frustrating process. But it doesn't have to be.

Over the past five years, I’ve written an average of 100+ blog posts per year for publications like the Harvard Business Review (180+ articles published), Forbes (250+ articles published), Entrepreneur, TIME, Business Insider, Inc., the World Economic Forum blog, and more. 

In the Rapid Content Creation Masterclass, I’ll show you in detail the processes I’ve developed for how to create content quickly and effectively, from this point forward.

Dorie Clark's Course Participants and Private Coaching Clients Have Been Published In Media Outlets Including:

  • Harvard Business Review
  • Forbes
  • Entrepreneur
  • Inc.
  • Worth

In this course, you'll learn how to:

  • Quickly come up with ideas for compelling posts

  • Structure and outline your content efficiently

  • Leverage content creation as a form of networking

  • Write fast and painlessly, so that each post takes no more than 60-90 minutes – period.

What Will You Learn?

You’ll leave the masterclass with outlines of 10+ pieces that will be easy for you to take action on, a detailed editorial calendar, and the permanent knowledge of how to create great content quickly. That's the cornerstone for building your expert reputation.

How Is the Course Structured?

Because it's an online course, you can go at your own pace. The course contains approximately three hours of video instruction, including writing exercises, guest expert interviews, a 'hot seat' analysis, and more. You'll have immediate access to all course materials, and can review them at your convenience. Of course you'll hopefully want to spend time after taking the course writing your own articles!

New outlook on strategy and writing

Caroline Stokes, executive recruiter, Vancouver, Canada

"I’ve written for Forbes and Venturebeat and have 70+ articles on Linkedin, but each one is typically hard to conceive and deliver. I wanted to improve my writing process and signed up for Dorie’s very reasonably priced course, stuffed with insights. My biggest takeaway was a very strong realization that my writing strategy needed to change, and within one hour pivoted my direction to accompany my business goals."

Personal and professional growth

Sarah Cushman, transportation consultant, Portland, Maine

"The Rapid Content Creation Masterclass was a real boon for me both as an amateur blog post writer and also for a column I’m now writing for our regional newspaper. Dorie did a great job of seeking out our specific questions and concerns and addressing them through diverse class exercises. I so appreciated the one-on-one case study counseling session, the special guest insight, the community built, and helpful Q&A throughout. Hats off to Dorie and I’m looking forward to my upcoming date to work more with the class resources and further map out my next steps!"

A great investment

Uplevel your content creation

Candela Iglesias Chiesa, PhD., global health specialist, Oslo, Norway

"I signed up for Dorie's course because I write blog posts and articles, and I wanted to become more consistent at it and figure out how to best use my writing to position myself in my niche. Despite having read numerous blogs and watched some webinars on content creation, Dorie's course still had a lot of new knowledge for me. I particularly liked her structured method to create content regularly, and her strategy to reach new audiences and outlets for your writing. Best of all, she provides useful exercises to ensure you complete her course with a strong plan to uplevel your content creation. I like Dorie's authenticity and the time she spends answering every question her participants have for her. "

"Here is the result: two days after taking the course, my work was published on Thrive Global. I had been thinking of taking the action for a long time...but your course pushed me to actually do it! Thank you!"

The kickstart to my goals

Heather Pownall, Director of Business Development, Raleigh-Durham, NC

"Thank you for making the masterclass session available. The framework and tips you shared were incredibly useful. The 'hot seat' workshop, where you walked through outlining an article together, was gold. I took tons of notes, and the next day, I followed your exact approach to outline my very first blog post for my new site -- a goal that had been on the back burner in my mind for about the past 10 years. So again, thank you for sharing your expertise and for offering up plenty of 'you can do this' positive vibes through the course. It was a catalyst, and gave me the fuel I needed to get started."
Kim van Niekerk, fundraising consultant, London, UK

My VA couldn't believe it!

I Had to Stop to Write

"I am halfway through your Rapid Content Creation Masterclass and I had to stop to write. Two hours later, I had written 8 blogs! Your course is amazing. I wonder what fantastic things are going to happen when I finish the course. :) "

Not just the techniques, but the course to put my thoughts out.

Archana Shetty, leadership coach, mentor, speaker, Qatar

"After taking this course, I regularly (weekly) put up articles on LinkedIn and my website. The course has not only given me the techniques, but the courage to put my thoughts out. Case studies, personal examples, and incorporating views from other experts make Dorie's work unique. I highly recommend Dorie’s courses on Rapid Content Creation and Writing for High Profile Publications if you’re looking to build your personal brand and expand your reach through writing."

By the end of the masterclass I was brimming with ideas

The class was informational, practical, actionable – and motivating. By the end, I understood the process and was brimming with ideas.”

Rapid Content Creation

  • Builds Your Professional Reputation

    Publishing content builds your reputation as an expert and thought leader. You become the person others quote, and whose opinion they seek out.

  • Attracts Business Opportunities

    Sharing your ideas enables you to attract like-minded clients. Plus, it makes the sales process easier and faster, because potential clients already know and trust your work.

  • Grow Your Network

    You can often interview people for your articles, or quote them. This helps you build connections with high level people that might otherwise be inaccessible to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will This Course Guarantee Me Placement in a Prominent Media Outlet?

    To be clear: no. The focus of the Rapid Content Creation Masterclass is helping you learn how to write great material, quickly and effectively.

  • What If I'm Not a Great Writer?

    If you're *really* not a great writer (flunking high school English and the like), you should probably start with a private writing coach or take more remedial classes. But for the majority of professionals I've seen, when they say, "I'm not a great writer," that typically means one of two things: 1) they don't enjoy writing because it feels stressful and takes them a long time; and/or 2) they feel like they're not a master prose stylist. If those are your concerns, this course can probably help. Writing blogs or articles feels much less stressful when you understand the structure and what editors are looking for, so you know what you're aiming for. And you definitely don't need to be a 'literary' writer for blogs & articles - in fact, that's often a hindrance. What editors are looking for is clean, clear prose - something where the organization of the post makes sense and the ideas are easy to understand. If you're able to do that well, you're in great shape.

  • How Is This Course Different from Writing for High Profile Publications?

    I also offer a course called the "Writing for High Profile Publications." I also recommend it, and you can check it out out at learn.dorieclark.com/courses/highprofile. But to clarify the difference, this course focuses on how to write high quality articles quickly. Writing for High Profile Publications focuses on how to tailor your submissions to specific publications, develop your unique voice while matching the editorial style they're looking for, and tactical strategies for how to break in with editors, so the material covered is different.
