Well, it’s a pleasure to find you here in 2019.
How are you getting on?
Liking the place, or not too sure?
After a bit of a break over the Christmas period, I’m back in the hot seat this week and tackling 2019 head on.
I’m pleased to say, as well as making some good headway on some copy jobs, I’ve already been able to sort a brand new episode of The All Good Copy Podcast.
We’ll get to that in a moment…
First, a big, BIG thank you to everyone who voted for All Good Copy in the UK Blog Awards 2019.
Thanks to your efforts, we made it to the shortlist in the PR, Marketing and Communication category.
That’s pretty cool.
Not sure where we’ll go from here, but it’s great to have had your support to get the website on the finalist list.
So, thank you. It’s truly appreciated.
Also thank you to everyone who has bought my book, The Art of the Click.
Over Christmas it became a bestseller on Amazon, which is ace. I’ve received some amazing five-star reviews from All Good Copy readers. And it’s been entered into The Business Books Awards 2019, which is cool too.
If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, you can do so here.
It was a busy end to the year, but 2019 looks set to be even busier…
I’ve got some great guests lined-up for the podcast – and I’ve begun booking for series two already.
I’ll be speaking at more events this year, including the 2019 Copywriting Conference at the Barbican in London. I’ll be up in Edinburgh in February for the DMA’s Copywriter Club. And I’m hoping to get across to the US in April, so might sort something while I’m there too.
More news as it comes.
I’ve also got a big list of topics to write on for All Good Copy, from requests I’ve received to issues I’d like to write about and believe will help your own writing.
All that’s to come in 2019.
But right now…
The All Good Copy Podcast EP.3 – Jo Duncan
As I say, this week I released a brand new episode of The All Good Copy Podcast with very special guest, Jo Duncan.
It was a great discussion, focusing on content marketing – what it means, why it’s talked about so much and how to make sure you’re doing it right.
I’ve received some great feedback about the episode from those who’ve listened already, so I hope you enjoy it if you’ve not had chance to check it out yet.
Also, if you haven’t listened to my interviews with copywriting author, Tom Albrighton (EP.1) and marketing legend, Brian Kurtz (EP.2), I would recommend doing so.
