  • “Engage and develop your people with a learning experience they really want. Grow your business like no other.”
  • “Take your team's communication skills to the next level with the help of former FBI hostage negotiator, Chris Voss.”

  2. Impact font

Masterclass ads use a font similar to the Impact font used in memes across the internet. The familiarity of this font and its legibility on solid background is enough to catch the attention of someone scrolling aimlessly on LinkedIn.

  • “Go beyond boring corporate learning”
  • “Level up your sales team”

A H2 feature of their product usually follows this:

  • “With the world’s best instructors”
  • “From the world’s best instructors”
