I have my own unique brand voice and style. Can I still use your copywriting templates?
Absolutely. These copywriting templates in fact work best if you add in your own style. Our philosophy is that know/like/trust factor you're working to build with your audience is going to break down the minute they sniff out an imposter, so expect templates to be more "themeplate" style: you'll see voice-y examples, but you'll understand the psychological goal and reasoning behind the copywriting formulas. That's going to enable you to add in your own flair. The Online Brand Voice Vibe Quiz will walk you through how to highlight your own voice and adjust templates for your business use.
Exactly what happens after I purchase this?
Check your inbox—internet fairies will make sure your receipt and order hits your inbox. Your order arrives digital download-style, so get ready to download files to your device and pop them open for use.
Inside your zipped file, you'll find plenty of instructions to peruse, plus the Over-the-Shoulder Copy Crafting™ tutorial where you'll learn how to make the most of your new template.
What makes you qualified to help me DIY my sales copy?
Most copywriting templates haven't been tested and proven quite as much as mine have. Since 2016, the agency side of Ashlyn Writes has operated as my "lab"—a team of copywriters and I write email funnels, sales copy, and websites for creative entrepreneurs. I don't pull templates out of my bootie. Instead, I take what I'm testing and finding works for clients, then "templatize" that to sell in the shop.
I worked in corporate marketing drafting website and email copy for Fortune 100 companies for years prior to starting my own business.
The Copy Bar shop has had more than 2,000 individual purchases of copywriting templates—that's a lot of feedback to take and apply. ;)
What if I need extra eyes and support on this—is it possible to book Ashlyn to review my work?
Sure thing! That’s what Strategy Calls are for. Book one here and I’ll go to town on your work, so you can install and launch stat.
What if this template ends up not being a good fit for my business?
We get it, sometimes things don't work out. That's why we offer a 7-day no-hassle refund for any reason. You don't have to show us anything. You don't have to prove anything.
