    I created Bad Cookie for Bossy. Copy College only, but seeing as he’s already got a bit of a fanbase, I couldn’t help but share a bit about him, and how I built the very bold character that he is — and then brought that character to life through words.

    Ecomm Biz? These are the Email Flows You Need Like, Yesterday

    A lot of businesses get their auto email flows wrong — especially in the early days. They pay all their attention on the 'big stuff' (websites, packaging etc) and leave their Very Important Emails to their email or commerce platform. But the standard templates don't cut it, and it affects everything from your customer relationships to your bank balance. 
    Here, I run through the email flows that you absolutely need if you’re a ecomm business. For 'open me!' subject lines to match, follow this ep with episode 35.

    In this episode, I cover: 
    The benefits of a *chefs kiss* automated email sequence The email flows you need like, yesterday The purpose of each email + what to includeHow to save time when creating your email flows For more DIY goodness straight out of Bossy.

    This is why no one opens your email

    This is why no one opens your email

    Do you open enewsletters? Probably not. Most people are brutal with their inbox — add to that the average open rate of emails is only about 21% (according to Mailchimp), and it’s not looking good for the contents of YOUR emails. It just goes to show the subject line is IT — so you better give it the love and attention it deserves. 

    Today, we’re dissecting subject lines and how we can make them our bitch, with a lesson taken from Bossy. Copy College. 

    In this episode, I cover: 
    The two parts of your subject line you need to knowTop tips for open-me subject lines, from Bossy.'s creative copywriter, AnnaA sneak peek into our process for writing fun (+ effective) subject linesOur subject line examples for welcome, post-purchase, abandoned cart + winback emails, using the two custom brands created for Bossy.

    The 4 F's to F*cking Fantastic About Us Pages (+ Free Workbook!)

    The 4 F's to F*cking Fantastic About Us Pages (+ Free Workbook!)

    Eight months later and The Bossy. Type is back! I've been working on my first ever course, Bossy. Copy College, all year and have learned so much about my own process. One of the biggest revelations was how I write About Us pages, bios and brand stories. 

    After unpacking and refining my method, I couldn't help but share it — especially because these pages have a reputation for being insanely difficult to write (seriously, who wants to talk about themselves that much???). This process is SO easy, yet it always results in an effective and highly engaging About page. 

    In this episode, I cover: 
    Why none of us like the About Us page My checklist for a 'successful' About Us page How I write them differently to everyone — including other copywriters Why About Us pages are not like other website pages My exact 4-step framework to an attention-grabbing About Us The free workbook that's packed with visual layouts, hidden gems, topic lists and a full example, written by me Details on Bossy. Copy College, launching early December! Before you listen, head to bossycreative.com to download the Can I Get Your Attention?  workbook (look for the orange banner!)

Ruining My Life!

This podcast! I just can’t! I listen in the car and the information is so great that I have to go home, listen again, and take notes! It’s ruining my life because I can’t just listen, smile and nod and move on. I encourage everyone to destroy their life with Alyce, too! 🤣

Zvina ,

it was great the first few episodes

Then it became too much of promoting her own brand, plus her friends brand.
