Getting Paid to Be You with Laura Belgray, Founder of Talking Shrimp

Meet Laura Belgray


Laura Belgray, the founder of Talking Shrimp and co-creator of The Copy Cure, is a copywriting expert who helps entrepreneurs find the perfect words to express and sell what they do in a way that gets them paid to be themselves. Through her work with hundreds of clients (including online biggies like Marie Forleo and Amy Porterfield) she’s seen firsthand that putting “you” into your copy and all through your business is pure magic for getting people to love you up, share your ideas, and happily click your Buy button. In addition to online types, Laura’s list of clients and credits includes NBC, Bravo, HBO, TBS, Fandango, and many more. So if you watch TV — and don’t skip the commercials — you’ve probably seen her words on air. You can learn more about Laura and her incredible courses and freebies at 


Have you ever been so excited to open your inbox because it contained an email you actually wanted to read? Or see an Instagram post with a caption that made you pee in your pants? 


That, my friend, is the pure magic of great copywriting. And the magic of Laura Belgray.  


I’ve got some darn good wisdom coming your way from my guest today, Laura Belgray, the founder of Talking Shimp and co-creator of the Copy Cure, who will help you stop writing sucky copy (as Laura says). This conversation was so much fun that it even passed my ‘hurting cheeks’ test. That’s when I notice my cheeks hurting after smiling and laughing during an interview. This convo was a total 10 on the 1-10 hurting cheek scale. I hope your cheeks hurt a little bit, too, after listening to this conversation.

Email Marketing Gone Right


I don’t want to give it all away, but you’re going to love Laura’s humor and wit. A good place to start with using great copy in your email marketing and newsletters is to stop being formal and start being personable and most importantly, be yourself. A great way to do this is to pretend you’re writing to your bestie. Draft an email speaking to your BFF and then read it out loud. Remember, you’re talking to a person, so keep it genuine, focused on that one person and write like you’d talk. The goal is to have your emails feel more intimate, relaxed, natural, and conversational. Another little pro tip, use the person’s first name (sparingly) throughout the newsletter. 

Laura also shares:


  • What an EFAB is and why you need to use it
  • The best way to write subject headings (and preview text) in a newsletter
  • The one phrase to NEVER use in an email
  • How to get paid being you 
  • The new rule on using contractions and apostrophes  


Final Thoughts


Laura shares so much goodness about copywriting, email marketing, and laughs that just don’t stop. Make sure you tune in to hear about her stint on Sesame Street and why she now eats Raisin Bran.
