Emily Farris

Hi. I’m Emily Farris and I’ve been writing professionally for 20 years and creating social media content for brands since 2009. After watching small business owners make the same easy-to-fix social media marketing mistakes over and over again, I decided to package my knowledge into a short-and-sweet course to help anyone write more effective, engaging, error-free social media content.

No more sloppy copy!  

Bad copy is bad for business. Stop missing out on customers, conversions, engagement, and followers because your captions aren't working for you. Enroll in Social Media Writing 101 now, and in just one day you can be writing more effective, engaging social media posts.

The Video Lessons

The Video Lessons

In this series of straight-to-the-point videos, you’ll learn how to:

  • Develop your social media voice and tone (there’s a difference!)
  • Make sure you’re writing to the correct audience (we’re only going to worry about two for now)
  • Set goals, and crush them with every. single. post.
  • Construct a concise, engaging social media post

After the fundamentals, we’ll get into strategies and specifics, including:

  • My three favorite (and shockingly simple) tricks for overcoming writer’s block
  • The essentials of editing for social media
  • The difference between a good post and a bad one
  • How to avoid those cringe-worthy posts that go viral for all the wrong reasons

When you make it to the end of the videos (which you can do in one sitting if you want) you’ll be armed with the knowledge, tools, AND CONFIDENCE to help you write effective, engaging social media posts you can use for any social media platform, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.


Even if you just watch the videos (the heart and soul of Social Media Writing 101), and don't take advantage of any of the other benefits of your enrollment, you'll come away from Caption Camp a better social media writer.

But I want to help you get your entire social media strategy moving in the right direction, right away! So I’ve also created a handful of documents that you can reference at any time (again, forever — yes, even once it's retired!).

Social media managers, associates, interns, etc.
One-person marketing departments (hey, I've been there many times!)

Anyone who would love to get paid to do social media, either as a full-time job or a side hustle
Entrepreneurs who already do 17 jobs every single day
Anyone trying to grow their social media presence but just can't seem to get good engagement
Sales representatives and brand ambassadors who are competing with a bunch of other people selling the same product to the same online audience every day
Small business owners who don't have the budget to hire a social media manager, but know they need to do a better job of sharing their message and/or product with the world
And, yes, even professional writers, journalists, and authors who are great at the long-form stuff but could use some help with the super-short captions that repeatedly get the most engagement on most social media platforms

Course Goal

And if you’re already pretty good at it, you'll come away with new tricks and tools to help make every post even more engaging and effective — whether you're trying to grow your business on LinkedIn, get more clicks on Facebook, or increase your engagement on Instagram.

Course Breakdown


I’ve condensed nearly two decades of writing and marketing knowledge into an hour of video content and a handful of helpful reference documents.

Each lesson is focused on either a fundamental skill (the big-picture stuff) or strategies and specifics (tips, tricks, workarounds, etc.).

I want you to learn at your own pace, so I've designed this course in a way that allows you to watch all the videos in one sitting, or close your computer and pick back up where you left off — at any time, FOREVER. You can also revisit any lesson you'd like, as many times as you'd like (again, forever).
