Level Up with Our Freebies

Articles, checklists, ebooks & worksheets created from scratch

We believe startups, new organisations and young marketers are better off writing their own stuff. Nobody else is as close to the action. And our most successful clients all have a history of DIYing their copy.
Our free resources are here to make copywriting easier, faster and more fun.
The emails that go with some of the downloads take things further and help you to take action — rather than sitting on a pile of unread PDFs.

Plus, we give a disadvantaged child in India access to e-learning every time someone signs up for our emails.

Website and Email Audits for the Rainforest

Every month, we do an in-depth review of one email or web page (1 URL) on video.
This could be a sales email, a home page, an about page… whatever is helpful to you.
And it’s (almost) free of charge.
To apply, you’ll need to protect at least 1 square metre of rainforest. All we ask is that you let us share the video on the blog, in our email newsletter and on social media. That’s so others can learn from them.
