writing is a doing word
And as much as us high-priced copywriters would love to have you believe, it’s not magic, alchemy, or goddess-given talent.

Safe copy is so 2016
If your website doesn’t sound like you. If you’re so stuck with what to write anywhere you end up writing nothing remotely like what you mean. If I can go to your website and read exactly the same fluff as on your competitors’, why would I invest in you?
If I get your emails and my eyes glaze over and a little bit of drool starts to threaten my keyboard, why would I keep wanting to read your stuff?
If I have to watch one more video of your cat on your Facebook account because you can’t bloody think of what to write… oh… hang on. I quite like the cat videos. You can keep them.
But let’s save you from the blinking cursor of death and not bore your audience to death at the same time. OK?
I know how gutsy you have to be to play ball with the big girls in the online world. There’s so much noise. And you want everyone to like you.
Playing safe (and writing stuff that’s middle of the road) makes no one feel special. You don’t help your readers self-weed, and you don’t make your ideal client feel like they’ve finally found you.
I know you’re really good at your ‘thing’ and you wish you didn’t have to know how to be an entire marketing agency just to get it out there. I get it. You’d just like to be paid while you work in your genius. Fantastic copy will help that happen. Plus, joining will literally cost you about the price of dinner and a movie per week. Only much better for your health.
And much, MUCH cheaper than a decent copywriter.
This is an investment that will continue to pay off for the life of your business – and beyond.

“I have had the pleasure of being taught by Jay and boy, can that lady engage a group. I swear she could talk about the latest toilet seat trends and be able to compel people to WANT to know more…”
WHY LEARN FROM ME?
I’m not just bossy, I’m the boss. The bacon-bringer, the buck-stops-here-girl. I completely understand the paramount importance of your words making bank. Because I don’t get up every morning, have my false eyelashes on fleek, and have someone give me a blow-dry before waltzing into my writing space coffee in hand.
I’m a working copywriter and copy coach who in 6 short years has dragged my brand from barely-born to charging out at one of the highest hourly rates for freelance copywriters in Australia. I started with $0 and a borrowed laptop and now I’m invited to speak all over the globe about copy and branding.
My words did that.
Fairly quickly, I found an uncanny knack to teach other people how to make theirs do the same. I’m a natural Mentor/Teacher. Can’t help myself. Instead of keeping it all for my intensive clients, in 2018 I launched a new online class – keeping costs lower than 1:1 training or outsourcing – for those on a budget while still maintaining a ripper level of expert advice and training.
I’m Jay Crisp Crow, proud owner of a funny name, Mother to 3 game-changing people, lover of a Viking, and dedicated, life-long word nerd who just adores seeing someone else nail it.
I’ve written website copy, email copy, launch copy, Sales copy, landing pages, advertising copy, more About pages and biographies you can poke a stick at, socials, awards, grants, policy and procedures, headlines, hooks, eBooks and guides, influencer and stockist letters, magazine articles, blogs, reviews, and even wedding vows. You’d be hard pressed to find anything I haven’t written, though I now focus on website and email copywriting and teaching other women how.
The Crisp Copy Class is my baby. 2 years of planning, tens of thousands of dollars spent in professional course creation advice and tech, over 200 1:1 copy coaching sessions and counting, and now around 70 hours of pre-recorded training available at your fingertips – all for less than it would cost you to hire me to write one website page.
This isn’t just another Mastermind, this is everything you need to build a foundation to write what you mean, and sell what you want.
My Copy Chops
Or something. I dunno. According to my computer, I wrote over a million words of bank-making copy for clients just in the past 12 months. I much prefer working with words.
Copy Projects Completed
Again, according to my Xero this is an actual number. I don’t remember how I calculated before that. With some sticks, pieces of paper, a napkin or two, and tears at the bookkeeper, no doubt. In any case, this is the number of invoices I’ve sent. And someone’s paid. Bonus.
Copy Coaching Clients
As I am a born bossy-pants, a year after I launched my copywriting business I began to coach other women how to DIY, but without the clunk. Through my newly launched Blogging group and in 1:1 intensives, I’ve improved the writing of this many businesswomen directly. Who knows how many more just because I am noisy on the socials? #lovingmyselfsick

Crisp Copy Converts
Over 130 women have now enrolled in this course and upped their copy chops. Below are some live round participants. You get an option to hang out with them once you graduate the course.
“I am a die-hard DIYer, riding the cutting edge of the NewLaw wave, so outsourcing my copy was never in my game plan. Besides, I enjoy writing so much – why should I let someone else have all the fun? The problem was, my website copy did not feel cohesive. It lacked structure, having been written piecemeal in spurts of unguided inspiration, and it was not as delightfully dazzling as I desired it to be. I also thought I lacked the time and motivation to make it better.
Enter Jay’s Crisp Copy Class. Jay’s copy always sizzles superbly and if I was ever going to entrust my copy to another, the ever-feisty Jay would be my first choice. Imagine my joy at finding that she would not only hold my hand and guide me step by step through the process of polishing every word on my website, she had also curated a collection of top-notch marketing experts to teach me all I needed to know about efficiently crafting an effective web presence for my business.
The best thing about the Crisp Copy Class is the inspiration that comes from working with other motivated writers (including Jay herself) to bring out my very best wordsmithery, and then receiving timely (loving) scrutiny to screen out all that is drab and dull.
If you love writing but your website copy lacks lustre (or even if you want to hang out with cool people and have fun playing with words) I cannot recommend the Crisp Copy Class highly enough.”
“Like a course, but better! Education + Feedback = Priceless.
I’d been circling my website for months knowing it needed an update, but every time I sat to write, zero came to me. What was I supposed to say? In what order? Using what words? Then back in the too hard basket it would go.
Enter the Crisp Copy Copywriting Course (and community). This group has got to be the next best thing to outsourcing – which isn’t something I personally wanted to do. You get an education that sets you up long-term as well as those “water cooler chats” for check-ins and accountability (as well as Jay’s standard issue humour).
No more wondering what to write or feeling alone behind a computer screen! Watch a monthly call, take notes, do the thing, get feedback, edit and hit publish. Viola! Now I can make my own website changes with confidence ”
“Jay is just awesome!
I have learned soooooo much in the few months I was enrolled in the Crisp Copy Class. Jay was always willing to comment, assist, review, guide, and even pamper and encourage on the tough days. She not only taught me about copy, but also inspired me on how to start a business and run it from home while also have a family and other life commitments.
I will HIGHLY recommend her to anybody who would like to improve their copy on their website, emails, blogs, social media and just life in general! Thanks Jay!”
“I knew I could write, in fact, I make money writing copy for other people. But it wasn’t until I joined CCC that MY copy started coming together.
During the course it was great being able to tap almost directly into Jay’s copy and business brain, no question was too stupid and her answers were always crystal clear.
Jay taught me how to write in my voice, and create self-weeding copy that my target market loves.
Being in CCC is a great investment for any businesswoman at any stage – but particularly for those who think boring copy is so yesterday.”
“Writers like me spend a lifetime refining the craft. Hours are spent on a single sentence. You add a word here, take another there, always in scrutiny of every nuance and slant. Until you end up with a piece of writing so precise in delivery and interpretation, its intended meaning can’t be mistaken.
I wanted to refine my copywriting skills.
When my business coach told me to check out the Crisp Crow website, I did. Jay had me from the first headline. Right smack bang in the palm of her multi-award-winner hand.
I signed up to her… online copy course the minute I heard about it.
I love the structured yet at-your-pace learning style. It means hustling women like me can make it work. I love the friendly and supportive environment. I especially love how Jay’s always available to give support and gentle guidance when you need it.
The course has gone above and beyond supersizing my copy prowess. Jay adds bang for buck by enlisting industry experts to deliver topics on personal branding, SEO, analytics, targeted web pages and more.
I know a heck of a lot more now than I did before the course. It’s given me a confidence kick and I’m a better copywriter for it.
Let’s face it, when Jay gives your copy the thumbs up: life made.
I’d definitely recommend this course to solopreneur business women looking for a content-marketing edge.”
YOU got questions?!
Good, that’s how you learn!
How much time will the course take?
So, you noticed the price wasn’t $400 + per hour, right? That’s because I’m not going to do it for you and there’s some work needed from your end. Anything good either needs time or money invested in it – this is an affordable course because it requires you to dig in at least once a week and put aside a couple of hours to do the work.
But, don’t worry if life gets in the way. You have access to the course for as long as I’m in business and the CCC exists (and I’ve no plans to go back to being an employee!)
How long will I get access to the course?
For the lifetime of my business.
I’m planning for that to be a very long time, my friend.
Every lesson of the Crisp Copy Class is recorded and uploaded to the member’s only platform. You’ll have access to that for the life of the course.
There's so much info online for people writing their own copy. Can't I just follow all that advice?
How’s that going for you so far?
I wrote over a million words of converting copy last year and people pay me just over $5000 to do this training with me 1:1.
This membership course gives you step-by-step guides to follow, access to me and my experty friends. You do need to do some work but you’ll learn this stuff once and implement it forever more – from writing your own Sales page to always knowing what to write on social media.
I just don't have the time!
Email me and I’ll write your website, emails, socials copy – everything – for you.
But, if you want to learn copywriting practices you can use on every page of your website along with paying a fraction of the price of getting a professional to do it for you, this is a very sweet option, my friend!
But... I'm a bad writer!
2. That’s why I’ve broken down these lessons for you with advice on structure, writing processes, editing, and storytelling.
3. See Point 1.
Don’t want to be a copywriter when you grow up? Goodo. This membership is aimed at smart women in business who want to improve their own copy, and marketing professionals, VAs, and newbie copywriters who want to get better results for their clients. You don’t need to be Tolstoy to kill it.
What's the difference between the live round and the self-guided tour?
2. The live round participants get everything the DIY version folk do, plus an invitation to the live calls (so they can ask questions), week day access to Jay on the Facebook group, and discounted 1:1 sessions.
If you are a DIYer and want to upgrade at any point, just email me and I’ll send you an invoice for the dollar amount difference only and a spot in the next available live round.
I've changed my mind. Can I have a refund?
Listen, don’t do that to yourself.
Don’t be one of those people that signs up for things only to bail on themselves.
Let’s tackle this thing. Do the work. Implement the advice. You’re thinking of signing up for this because you are so darn sick of your copy being the same as your competitors, boring as heck, or feeling totally inauthentic. Or, like, not in existence.
So – officially: refunds for change of mind will not be given. However, if your world implodes sometime between the day you purchase this course and 14 days afterwards we can work something out. If you request to cancel your course in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days of purchasing this course with a valid reason for your request we will reply by email within 2 business days to inform you if a refund has been approved. Once approved, an electronic refund will be issued (less any payment gateway fees) within 14 working days from the date of approval.
Refund requests after the 14 day period will not be approved under any circumstances and at all times we will abide by the Australian Consumer Law in relation to any guarantees for our Services. You can read all my T&Cs here.
