Level Up with Our Resources

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 resources are here to make copywriting cost effective, 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 2 days of medical protection to street dogs 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.

The Scratch Post: Our Blog

A blog designed to help you discover better ways of doing things… and fall in love with the way we work.

30 Creative Email Ideas

These 30 ideas will get you unstuck and inspire you to try something new. You’ll also get 2-3 emails a month with tips and copywriter insider knowledge that will make you fall in love with marketing again.

There’s More to Ethical Communication than Not Being a D*ck

This is where we used to offer an infographic from 2017. But since then, we’ve collected our best tips for ethical communication on The Ethical Move Resources Page.

When you check out that page, you’ll quickly see why an infographic is no longer enough to capture ethical communication practices. And so we’ve decided to remove our humble offering — and instead send you to that treasure trove.

If you’d like our support in making these practices work for your business, check out our paid offer:
