Here's what some of our fellows have to say about the SalesFolk Cold Email Academy:

"I began writing for Salesfolk a year and a half ago, after leaving a career in business development to start my own business. Initially, it was a way to make some freelance income on the side with my writing skills. Yet, I've gotten a lot more than just that...

SalesFolk has helped me learn many new persuasive writing strategies and formulas I can use to target any company (or any person) in order to start a business conversastion. Plus, I always get quick and consistent feedback from my editors on how to improve my writing, which has really helped me grow into a much more persuasive communicator.

Not only is Salesfolk a fun and challenging environment for people who want to write better, it's also the perfect place for someone who wants flexibility in a side hustle that pays well. In fact, when I was getting my own business up and running...this helped me pay the bills while enjoying the work I do.

I recommend Salesfolk so much that I even recruited a new writer on the team! Come for the cold emails...and stay for the community."

“Every modern salesperson should try to freelance for SalesFolk if they can. I love it because I throttle the workload to match my bandwidth, the team of goats is top notch, and every campaign I work on is more practice towards a skill that is vital to my day job and livelihood. Whether it’s a hobby, side hustle, or full-time bill paying gig, writing for SalesFolk is the best!”

— Eric

“Being part of the SalesFolk writing team is awesome! Not only do I get access to fantastic training resources, regular webinars and video lessons which are helping me to upskill and become a master of cold emailing, I also get to hone my skills by writing campaigns for a great variety of companies. I’m also part of a really supportive team – even though we’re based in different cities around the globe, we’re in touch every day to discuss feedback, cold email tips, even what happened on last night’s episode of Game of Thrones. For a freelance copywriter working from home, it’s a great feeling to be part of such a fun and connected team.”

— Natalie

“SalesFolk is Team Fun all the way. Writing and editing with such a welcoming, supportive community gives me a guided focus on my craft that doesn't feel like work.”

— Clea

“Working with the SalesFolk team has been the most supportive and positive working experiences I’ve ever had! Aside from providing me with awesome training and experience, I’ve been treated with nothing but respect and kindness. Everyone is ready to do some serious work while maintaining upbeat attitudes! That’s a rare combination.”

— Emily

"Everyone who works at SalesFolk is friendly and cares about doing a great job. The editors have unquestionably made me a much better writer through their feedback and guidance, and I’ve even received bonuses for doing a brilliant job. All in all, I love writing for SalesFolk, and I hope I get do it for years to come."

— Matt

"Using the income I earned from working for Salesfolk, I was able to finish paying off my student loans.

The SalesFolk team are second-to-none when it comes to writing compelling, persuasive copy. Getting to learn from the best helped me improve my skills and feel more confident applying for marketing jobs that had previously seemed out of reach."

— Kathie

"As a scientist, I wrote a lot of academic papers in grad school, but they weren't exactly interesting or persuasive. SalesFolk not only taught me how to write more persuasive emails, but how to be a much more effective communicator overall. This is really giving me an edge in my field, as many of my peers lack the communication skills they need to excel in their career."

— Jay

“Working with SalesFolk is always entertaining. They are playful, energetic, liberated, animated and spirited. But that’s the side stuff. Every project is an adventure. And the SalesFolk goats are supportive, motivating you to be your best, professionally, while encouraging creative thoughts, daring you to think outside the box while maintaining a critical eye of the reason behind the project. Anyone who loves writing copy would love to work with them.”

— Dale

“A Writer’s Dream” -- "My experience of working with SalesFolk has been a writer’s dream. They give you everything you need to succeed.The SalesFolk process is professional and organized. The writer orientation details exactly what’s expected of you and the steps involved. If you have questions, there’s an internal communication via Slack to get the answers you need. They also provide resources like an internal intranet for writers and premium content with specific lessons via articles, videos and webinars to help you stay on top of your craft. But for me, the best part of being a SalesFolk writer is working with professional editors from start to finish on projects. Their invaluable feedback combined with SalesFolk's process and education has helped me grow exponentially as a writer.”
