Building an epic product got you this far.

Listening to customers keeps you on that growth trajectory.

All Copy Island engagements begin with research. We’ll ask you, your audience, your customers, and even the market what, why and how they need a solution like yours.

This customer-led approach means we can create powerful, data-backed content.

There's lots of soft advantages to this kind of messaging, including growth strategy, reduced customer support tickets (because messaging is so spot on) and better awareness with your ideal client profile, but here are some hard numbers from our past clients:

Boost product revenue by 38% month on month thanks to new webpage messaging.

Dominate the search results by ranking the top 10 for 600+ keywords

Create 70 blog posts, and ultimately generate half a million impressions in under 8 months

Improve sales email open rates and CTRs for an email series to an average of 36% and 4.3% respectively

We specialize in making complex technical subjects  easy to understand

Copy Island has worked with hundreds of startups at all points in their growth journey. From motion capture, to AI video makers, to finance tools, to big data, we've got the expertise to handle complex topic.

(Even if you're doing something as niche as AI software for anti-fishing poaching drones. And yep, that's a real client!)

Hi, I'm Claire, the human behind the keyboard

Researcher, writer, founder (in that order)

Like many newbie writers, I never understood the power of customer research. But with 6+ years of experience under my belt, and plenty of experience in conversion copywriting, I now know that that the best messaging a brand can put out comes from their customers.

That's why my small team and I dedicate hours to learning everything we can about you, your business, and your best customers.

You won't find any agency-style set-and-forget content creation templates at Copy Island - optimization is our game.
