Do you dream of leaving your office job and making your mark on the world by writing a wildly popular book or creating a magnificent blog read by thousands—if not millions—of people?

Do you wish you were able to write business reports, sales emails, website copy, cover letters or college essays with supreme confidence?

Imagine, then, what it would be like if you could write with the style and flair of journalists on top newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The Economist.

Welcome to the brand new second edition of Secret Sauce Of Great Writing, a program that will show you how it's possible to upgrade your business writing, blog writing and copywriting skills to that level extremely fast. 

The course is taught by Shani Raja, author of the bestselling Udemy course Writing With Flair: How To Become An Exceptional Writer and a former Wall Street Journal senior editor and writing coach, as well as an ex-contributor to The Economist, the FT, Dow Jones and Bloomberg News

In this course, Shani will introduce you to the fundamental four ingredients of exceptional writing:

  1. Simplicity

  2. Clarity

  3. Elegance

  4. Evocativeness

In as little as an hour, you'll know exactly how to apply this "secret sauce" to your own writing—putting you way ahead of other writers in your profession or industry.

"Outstanding course from the get go..." — Rudyard von, Udemy student

"A genuine recipe to produce attention-grabbing writing..."  Hassan Masood, Udemy student

"Revolutionary..." — Marie-Rose Davis, Udemy student

"Impressive..." — Cornelia M. Lorenzo, Udemy student

"Priceless..."  — Alimaa Batchuluun, Udemy student

The secret sauce

The first three ingredients in the secret sauce—simplicity, clarity and elegance—respectively make your writing punchy, crisp and graceful.

Evocativeness is the fourth quality that makes your prose stimulating.

When you put those four ingredients together in a piece of writing, it will become truly outstanding. 

In fact, it's the exact formula Shani has used for many years to edit articles devoured regularly by millions of people worldwide.

Perhaps you've always felt your writing was too weak to get noticed or make an impact. Maybe you've struggled to figure out how to improve it, or even to know where to begin.

Don't worry.

This course will reveal the writing tactics of world-class editors in a well structured and easy-to-follow format.

You'll find that as soon as you incorporate those four ingredients (simplicity, clarity, elegance and evocativeness) into your writing, you'll see a seismic shift in the impact of your words and sentences.

"Goes beyond the bland lessons of early education by adding flavor and life to your prose..." — Billy Williams, Udemy student

"Excellent advice and interaction kept me glued to this course..." — John Faherty, Udemy student

"Really gives you the ability to see how your writing could improve..." — Cameron M. Kreider, Udemy student

"Shattered my opinion about good writing..." — Bilal Ahmad,  Udemy student

"Thank you for enlightening us..." — Tanpreet Kaur Narula, Udemy student

"Makes you feel comfortable and excited about writing..." — Travis Fry, Udemy student

"Helped me to see exactly what I needed..." — Shalecia Tatiana Wallace, Udemy student 

How many job interviews might you have lost because your cover letters and resume didn't hit home?

How many customers might you have turned off because the words on your website were too dull and uninspiring to read?

How many books or blog posts have you quit writing, or put off, because you couldn't figure out why your sentences and words lacked the power to captivate a reader?

You'll find the answers to such questions in this course, your first glimpse into the wondrous world of elite writing.

Not tips, but a writing system

This entry-level writing course doesn't focus on the technical aspects of writing, such as grammar rules.

Rather, it reveals the powerful key principles that will enable you quickly to design more stylish prose.

Nor will you get a bunch of fragmented writing "tips" you could pick up anywhere on the internet.

This is an all-encompassing writing system that will change forever the way you think about and approach the craft.

Your essays, cover letters, press releases, marketing copy and sales emails—not to mention books and blog posts—will never look the same again. 

"Most great teachers can't write, and most great writers can't teach. Shani Raja is one of the few who excels at both. I managed dozens of reporters and editors during my 12-year career at Bloomberg News. Now he's the person I go to when I want help with my writing." NICOLAS JOHNSON, FORMER BLOOMBERG AND GLOBE AND MAIL EDITOR.

"As a young reporter my prose might have been robotic and jargon-laden if not for Shani's watchful eye and attention to the elusive human interest behind ostensibly technical stories. Beyond the standard (yet crucial) reporting skills—like accuracy, clarity and integrity—I also learned refinement, how to withstand impulses toward glibness and cynicism that can naturally set in when oft revisiting the same beat. Shani will teach you how to write well, and with grace." HAWA ALLAN, JOURNALIST AND FICTION WRITER.

Who I am

I've written hundreds of resumes and been fortunate to get a lot of interviews from them. I've interviewed at big companies like Google, IBM, Caterpillar and Amazon. I've interviewed at the world's largest winery and the world's largest contractor. I've even interviewed with many global consulting firms including A.T. Kearney, Deloitte, and Accenture. I didn't get these opportunities because I was smarter than someone else - I got a lot of help preparing my resume from other people with experience and that made all the difference.

But I've also reviewed a lot of resumes so I have experience on both sides of the table. In this course I'll share with you what I've learned in my experience, and the things I've seen give a lot of other people success. And I've reviewed other folk's resumes so you can see common mistakes from people with all different backgrounds, all over the world, and avoid the same mistakes on your own resumes!

I want to see you improve your resume and get more interviews!

A resume is a very important piece of document which decides your eligibility for any job. If you have an exceptional set of skills but are unable to fabricate a proper resume then you might miss out on a good job offer. You can even think of your resume as a sales-pitch which can be referred by recruiters to judge your credibility. So if you structure your resume well, provide the right information and use the right keywords at the right location, you can improve your profile’s visibility. In this course, we will start with the very basics of resume writing, talk about the items that recruiters look out for and mention the right places to upload your resume, in order to gain the highest visibility.

We divided the entire resume into different sections and targeted each section individually to specify its importance and how you can fill them with the right information. We talk about the importance of a brief summary section and how choosing the right keywords can improve your resume. While constructing the course material we went through different resume templates and worked with different designs, so that you yourselves can create a resume which makes full utilization of the available space without compromising with the look and feel. After going through the tutorial you would be able to:

  • Find out the right editing tools that can be used for creating a resume.
  • Know, why content in the resume is so important and what do recruiters actually look for in it?
  • How to make your resume stand out from other applicants?
  • Selecting the best styling options to increase your resume’s visibility?
  • The common mistakes while creating a resume
  • Make sections to structure the content
  • Optimize resume real estate to include maximum skills
  • Know the behavior of ATS (Applicant Tracking System) to increase your chances of interview calls
  • Selecting the right keywords based on your profession to increase visibility on job portals and after portfolio selection.
  • Mention past experiences in the right way
  • Figure out the right way to create a multi-page resume
  • Find out the distinct formatting required for multi-page resume
  • Know how lengthy a resume should be
  • Finalize your resume and revising, to smooth out the rough edges
  • Know about the best places or portals to upload your resume
  • Get to know about the best practices while carrying or producing your resume during a personal interview

In this tutorial, we start by covering the basic types of resume and which type suits your purpose the best. We talk about the pros and cons of each resume type and provide resume samples of each. Then, we jump right into the different steps for resume writing. We have also created a plan which you can follow step by step to create the perfect resume for yourself.

We have also covered the various text editing tools available in the market across different platforms which can be used for creating your resume and used Google docs to create the resume template. While following the plan, we first laid down the characteristic features that a recruiter looks for and made sure that we build the template ground up using that approach. To get the aesthetics right, we select margin, alignment, font styling and line spacing that meets the industry standard and grabs the attention of the recruiters as well.

As this tutorial is meant for freshers as well as the experience lot, we have discussed how resume length varies with expertise. The tutorial covers single-page resume and multi-page resume and clearly defines the guidelines for both. How multi-page resume needs to be structured and what are the ideal practices that need to be followed. Be it any profession, designing, photography, software development or testing, management, marketing or advertising, this tutorial would teach you how to create the perfect resume.

Every section and its significance have been clearly described in the tutorial along with clear examples to further increase the usefulness of this course. We have also shared a dummy template which you can download and use it for creating your own resume. It's that simple!

While creating this tutorial, our primary focus was to understand the current recruitment process thoroughly and use this knowledge to lay down the structure of the perfect resume template. We made sure that the template that you will be having at the end of this tutorial would not only be easily readable by the ATS but also grab the attention of the recruiters. We went though many resume samples and tried to single out the aspects that are not recommended. At the end of this tutorial, you would be sure of the best practices related to resume development and know some cool tricks to increase your resume’s visibility.
