The Case Study Writer's Mad Skills Crash Course

AN ON-DEMAND COURSE ON THE INS AND OUTS OF CRAFTING CUSTOMER CASE STUDIES 

Make $1000-$1500 per Project - or More! 

Does the thought of making $1000-$1500+ writing positive, 2-page stories sound intriguing?

Then customer case studies may be the perfect addition to your copywriting services.

I'm Casey Hibbard and I've been writing case studies for two decades - adding up to more than 1,000 of these fun projects!

I also authored the first book on creating and managing customer case studies, Stories That Sell: Turn Satisfied Customers into Your Most Powerful Sales & Marketing Asset

These days, case studies are STILL in high demand. In fact, I regularly have to turn away work because it's more than I can handle. 

Businesses need these customer stories more than ever… but they can’t always find writers adequately skilled in interviewing, writing and managing case studies.

It's not that hard, but it is a specific skill that you need to hone. 

But before we get too far, let me back up a second.


“My client was very pleased with the case study I delivered. I owe that to your first-rate course (Mad Skills) and your excellent book. I have been referencing those resources constantly, for everything from how to format the draft document to how to manage the process. I am very grateful that you created those outstanding resources and made them available. I am delighted to be able to add case studies to my repertoire.”

– T. Hume


Wait, What Are Case Studies Anyway?

A customer case study is simply a story of a happy customer's experience. Think of it as a testimonial x 10. 

It details why a customer chose a product or service, how the customer uses it, and the benefits it brings.

Businesses leverage these positive stories to inject credibility into their sales, marketing and PR. 

In the age of Amazon and TripAdvisor reviews, people are accustomed to relying on the experiences of others to help make decisions.

And case studies provide that essential credibility, education and validation to give buyers peace of mind in choosing a vendor. 

Short of word of mouth, there’s no better way to communicate value to buyers!


"I just wanted to thank you for everything. I landed two clients within the past week through using your strategies and using LinkedIn, and your course has just helped me feel really prepared. I am feeling really confident about case study writing and what I know as a case study writer from everything you teach."

- K. Corbett


Never a Better Time

In more than two decades of writing case studies, I’ve found no other form of copywriting as rewarding. 

After all, I get to interview my clients’ happy customers and then capture that experience on the page.

And best of all, I earn $1,000 to $1,500 for each one. And more for longer, more in-depth case studies.

Case studies are unlike any other form of marketing collateral. It's a compelling, true story without all the promotional puffery you might find in other marketing copy. And not to mention fun to work on!

But I can't help all the businesses out there.

Quite simply, the market needs more SKILLED case study writers.

To do this kind of work, you have to…

  • Know how to interview happy customers to elicit the information you need
  • Strategically ask questions to get measurable results
  • Write in a concise, engaging way
  • Create the “case study accessories” that are part of every story
  • Craft a story that makes the client AND featured customer look good
  • Know how to guide your clients and their customers through the process
  • Help prevent and navigate roadblocks that may arise in the process
  • Guide designers in creating an attractive layout

None of this is tough. It’s just a matter of having the skills and confidence to do it.


The Case Study Mad Skills Crash Course is the blueprint for writing case studies. It’s a concise, no-fluff approach for freelancers and staff writers who want to hone their skills and stay competitive. Learn everything you need to write revenue-generating case studies and get support and feedback along the way. One of the best business investments I’ve made!”

Training and Mentoring from a Leading Case Study Specialist

In my flagship program, The Case Study Writer’s Mad Skills Crash Course, learn from-the-trenches tips from me. I'll walk you through the exact steps that I take to prepare for case studies, interview subjects, write compelling stories, manage the process and engage with designers.

Just as critical, I'll show you how to find and land these types of clients.

If only I'd had a program like this when I first began! Instead, I learned on the job - much more slowly. Training would have catapulted me a lot further, a lot faster.


"It's not an exaggeration to say [the course and group coaching] changed the course of my career (and my life, as freelance writing has given me the flexibility to work anywhere). I was able to complete a case study sample within weeks of starting the course, and before the group coaching sessions had ended I already had two paying clients. I now feel like I have something valuable to offer my clients! Casey's step-by-step and transparent instructions were incredibly helpful and gave me the confidence to communicate my value, market myself, and follow up with clients (something that terrified me before)."
