Hemingway

Newbie copywriters lack flair and boldness. Either fresh from high-school when starting sentences with a preposition is bad, or they lack the skills to cut long sentences, to focus on the high points. The Hemingway app reduces scatterbrain thoughts into fine-crafted copy.
 
Your readers will thank you.   
 
Do your thoughts turn into complex sentences of 12 or 20 words? Since using Hemingway my writing has become clean and crisp. And I didn’t realize how natural it flows until I plug old articles and tweets into Hemingway, for an upgrade.   
 
Using Hemingway will make you a better writer. You’ll start writing the way you speak after a few tries, the writing style becomes automatic. I’ve sat down to edit articles, to find they had no complex sentences to work on.

Slick Write

Take your edit to the next level with Slick Write. No longer will your copy lack purpose and be full of stylistic mistakes. You’ll run wild with this app. Proven to boost your writing skills from zero to hero.

 

And, It’s free… 

 

Paste your final piece from Hemingway into “slick write,” for your last push for perfection. 

You’re going to become the best copywriter that your effort allows. Use these tools to help you write your best copy today.  
 
I promise that you’ll writer better, faster and cleaner, to the point of shock! When the shock wears off you can thank me for sharing these copywriting tools.
