156: How to Stand Out With Words: Copywriting Tips for Side Hustlers


This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

When it comes to your side hustle, the words you use matter.

In so many businesses, our first impressions with customers often come from a website, an email, or a product description.

Are you sending the right message? Is it unique and powerful enough to stand out from the crowd?

This week I’m excited to introduce Mish and Rob Slade, a couple friends of ours who are living the digital nomad lifestyle. One of their businesses is Mortified Cow, a copywriting agency that helps small businesses set themselves apart from the competition through personality-ful, attention-grabbing text.

Their work might not look like traditional “sales copy,” but it results in charmed, delighted readers who are eager to work with you or buy your product.

They run their business while they travel the world – because they can. In fact, Bryn and I had the chance to hang out with them over beer and wine in Barcelona last year. Awesome!

In this episode we’re covering some of the most common copywriting mistakes side hustlers make, how to remedy them, plus doing a live copy review of 4 listener-submitted sites.

    • Hi Herb,

      The book was free on Amazon for a week, but I’m afraid that ended a few days ago. It’s currently just $3.85 on Kindle – which is still great value, I reckon!

      Hope that helps!
