Abbey Woodcock, founder of Freelance Co-Op, has been a direct response copywriter since 7th grade when she wrote a 30-page sales letter asking her crush to the dance. Since then, she’s converted better… writing sales pages and emails you’ve probably read from some of the biggest names online.

Now, she teaches the business side of creative freelancing including setting up systems to grow a freelancing business and building out an in-house content team that seamlessly “gets” your voice.

She’s also a chainsaw instructor and mom to 2 awesome kiddos in Upstate NY.

Tune in as Abbey shares her secret to managing a successful Facebook group and how she uses repurposing to make her long form content optimized for social media. Get more great episodes over on Repurpose House, or watch the interview on YouTube!
