Hi there, welcome. My name is Martin Stellar, and I teach artists, artisans and creative entrepreneurs how to come to terms with marketing and how to get their heads around running a profitable and sustainable business.
Before starting Single Malt Copy, I had quite a different sort of company: I used to be a fancy-pantsy bespoke tailor.
The story is too long to tell here, but the upshot of it is that in the process of running that company and investing a whole bunch of money to no avail, I learned a lot. Quite a lot.
In fact I learned so much that once my tailoring company finally bit the dust, I was able to start a new business as a copywriter, practically on the fly, and turn it into a more-or-less sustainable business within 6 months or so. That was long ago…
I’m not saying that to toot my own horn: My intention is for you to realise that you could learn from my experiences – my failures as well as my successes.
In other words, I can save you a whole bunch of time and money
And possibly embarrassment or bankruptcy – been there, done that.
The lessons I learned, I share with my readers – for free – in daily emails which people tend to love reading.
“Keep up the great work. I really do enjoy your emails. To be honest, I delete most of my e-newsletters but for some reason I always read yours.”

“I just want to quickly let you know how much I appreciate and how much fun it is to read your emails everyday. I am a content writer myself and I take all your suggestions/recommendations to heart. You have helped me in ways you will never know. Also, I find your entire life VERY interesting. In my eyes, you are one of the most interesting, insightful, and unique human beings on the planet. I really mean that.”
So if you are a:
- UX expert of consultant
- Work at home mom
- Creative person of any kind
- Person who makes a living online in whatever way you do it – so long as it’s ethical…
…and you want to learn down-to-earth business lessons from someone who paid his dues, and earned his degree from Hard Knock University, you’ve come to the right place.
Signup is free, your email address won’t get shared with anyone, and you can opt out any time with just one click.
I’ve gone the path of business, investment, failure and resurrection, and I’m telling you all I know, so you can grow your business smartly and quickly
It’s time to catch up on my gratitudes. You’ve been sending out very impressive ideas lately, moreso than even the usual.
I sat down with a highlighter to read LEAP #1, but I soon saw how pointless that was, for almost every page was filled with the yellow lines.
Thank you for LEAP #1. I have just printed it and cannot wait to get started. Thanks for being in my life.

I LOVE EET. That one issue was like a whole beginner’s course in marketing.
