Meet Steve


Meet Steve Slaunwhite

Award-winning copywriting and freelancing expert, bestselling author (well, nearly), and wannabe cool-guy skateboarder

Steve came to appreciate the value of great copywriting at an early age. While still in his teens, he wrote a sales letter for his dad’s restoration business that landed a big client in just two days. (And got him a raise in his allowance!)

Since that time he has helped thousands of businesses build sales with smart, effective marketing copy. He does that through his books and how-to guides, his acclaimed training programs and workshops, and his sought-after copywriting services.


Celebrated marketing expert and author, Michel Neray, refers to him as “the copywriter’s copywriting expert.”

A top-rated speaker, Steve teaches and trains thousands of professionals each year through his seminars, corporate training sessions, and webinars, as well as his one-to-one coaching programs. Because his workshops are so practical and hands-on, participants make real progress on skills, results and productivity right away. Often within the first hour.

He has also authored, or co-authored, several books including The Everything Guide To Writing Copy (Adams Media), Start & Run A Copywriting Business (Self-Counsel Press), and The CMA Guide to Email Marketing (CMA). Another of his books, The Wealthy Freelancer (Penguin/Alpha), won the “Best Business Book” award from

When not training, coaching, writing and generally obsessing about helping his clients and audiences “get smart” with their copywriting, Steve enjoys spending time with my wife and daughter. He is an avid skier and cyclist, which means he’s bored silly in the spring and fall.
