It’s been a while… But I’m glad to be back in touch today with a very exciting opportunity for you. As you may know, for many years now I’ve worked with a company called Agora.

Why you should sit on your arse and read more

Why you should sit on your arse and read more

Hurrah! I’ve finally got a chance to relax and take the time to say hello. More than that, I want to share some thoughts that I’ve been having since I attended a writing retreat in France last month. But before I do anything… I should apologise: I’ve been out of action for a little while. […]

Helpful advice for copywriters: an interview with Glenn Fisher

I was recently asked to do an interview by a young guy in Germany who’s looking to start his own online Internet marketing business. As I’m grateful to the many people who accept my own interview requests, I happily agreed to spare an hour to take a Skype call with the chap. Indeed, if anyone […]

“I don’t want to have to use this gun”

“I don’t want to have to use this gun”

Imagine you’re living a roguish life as a bank robber in the Wild West… You drift from town to town ‘sticking-up’ the local bank… You’re damn good at it too. Just yesterday you moseyed on in, stuck your gun in the bank teller’s face and delivered your usual “this is a stick-up” line. The teller […]

An interview with bestselling author and copywriter, Bob Bly

An interview with bestselling author and copywriter, Bob Bly

If you work in copywriting, there’s probably a copy of The Copywriter’s Handbook somewhere near you… Maybe it’s in that drawer you’ve not checked for a while… or hidden on the shelf between the Ogilvy, Hopkins and Schwartz… heck, it might be right next to you, acting as a coaster. Point is: this book is everywhere. And so it should be. You see, […]

Copywriters: Are you writing truly enough?

Copywriters: Are you writing truly enough?

“And the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them.” These days it’s almost cliché to say so… But, as a copywriter, I find the writing of Ernest Hemingway such a useful resource. If you’re not regularly reading his […]

Two clever puppets explain why ‘clickbaiting’ is bad

Two clever puppets explain why ‘clickbaiting’ is bad

I’m a huge fan of the Glove and Boots blog. There are very few sites on the web that I actively visit to check for updates, but Glove and Boots is one of them. If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll remember I first featured them in my 15 other things to do if […]

See ‘the Four Us’ put into practice LIVE (well, almost live)

See ‘the Four Us’ put into practice LIVE (well, almost live)

One of my mentors, the American entrepreneur and writer Mark Ford, once taught me a simple way to improve problematic headlines using ‘the Four Us’. I’ve written about the idea many times before, but today I thought I’d put it to the test LIVE. Or rather, as I write this article. Why not, eh? Indeed, I’m […]

The “Live. Die. Repeat.” approach to writing headlines

The “Live. Die. Repeat.” approach to writing headlines

“Live. Die. Repeat.” That’s the tagline of Tom Cruise’s new movie, Edge of Tomorrow. Have you seen it? Basically Tom Cruise gets the blood of an alien on him, which means that whenever he’s killed he returns to the day he got the alien blood on him. He meets Emily Blunt and then he has […]

It’s back: The Professional Copywriters’ Network Conference 2014

It’s back: The Professional Copywriters’ Network Conference 2014

We’re a funny sort us copywriters… You see, I turned 33 this week. Having spent most of the previous year being 32, I’d been expecting it. But I wasn’t expecting a card from my auntie with my face plastered on Don Draper’s body. (What did we do before Moon Pig, eh?) Of course, it was […]
