How Can The Copy Bear Help You?

“You want your brand to take a stand – to make a noise to attract your tribe.”

Close your eyes just for a second. Think three months ahead.

Imagine you’re picking up a handful of leads a day – they come organically and simply through your marketing funnel, which is focused on your blog. 

This blog doesn’t only connect with the progressive, liberal instincts of your tribe, it also talks to your potential customers’ pain points, offers help and builds their trust. 

Your blog isn’t salesy – it’s passionate and just plain useful, and your audience is growing to love it.  

Moreover, as they grow to love it, they find themselves really liking your brand. So much so that they want to be part of it. And so they inquire about your product or service. 

And, gradually, you find that your blog is generating more business than your outbound efforts. The sales just roll in.


Our Story 

I’m Paul, a former editor and writer for Reuters, The Times and Metro. 

Since 2016, I’ve led The Copy Bear, a liberal and progressive copywriting, content, UX and social media agency. 

My team of passionate, whip-smart writers have written – and are writing – for publications as diverse as The Times, The Economist, Washington Post, The Atlantic, The Guardian, New Internationalist, The Lancet, The Independent, Al Jazeera, New Statesman, Vice, Reuters, National Observer and OZY. 

They are engaged, savvy and direct. They are a great team of writers who’ll drive right to the core of what your tribe is interested in and enthuse them about your mission. 

You can meet them here.
