“I discovered this podcast a couple of weeks back, and I’m really enjoying listening back through previous issues. Freelance copywriting can be a bit of a solitary lifestyle, and it’s really useful to hear how other writers out there make their businesses work. Thanks, Kate and Belinda, for all the great information :-)”

“Great discussion between two very talented copywriters, each with a different point of view on the topic. I enjoyed the podcast because I get to make up my own mind rather than being told what I should be doing.”

“I’m currently working towards setting myself up as a freelance copywriter and was looking for a podcast which would provide some helpful tips, being a newbie ‘n all. Hot Copy does that and so much more! Belinda and Kate are the perfect duo – their tips are invaluable and the podcast is a joy to listen to. I’ve caught up with all the podcasts now, but know I’ll be dipping in and out of all them again lots in the future. I feel part of the copywriting ‘crew’ and it’s really giving me the confidence to go for it. Thanks both – please keep it up! Anna.”

Anna Hatty

“I do all my copy in Swedish, but still I have had enormous help from this podcast! Almost all episodes give me tips and insights that can be used in my work. So even if you don’t write in English, give this podcast a try. Seems like copywriting is an international language, and these girls speak it fluently. Keep up the good work!”

“As any copywriter knows, exposure to new and/or differing perspectives can be a gold mine. Hearing the thoughts of copywriters outside the US is very enlightening.”

This Podcast has been great in that it’s not only inspired listeners to start writing again, but it also offers great tips and practical advice to writers of all skill levels.
