  • Conrad's story

    When we started off Voucherify, our team was just a bunch of software developers. That's not really enough, to be honest; to get the product to the market, you have to market it. To market, you need to write. Easy! So, off we went, opened the editors and... got stacked. Our content was nothing like the best-in-class copies out there. How could we go about improving it we asked ourselves?

     

    If you're a developer and you're stacked, you can go to Stack Overflow. You find a similar problem, copy&paste the answer to your editor, shuffle a bit, and bam, the problem is fixed, and you can carry on with your task.

     

    We started wondering how to apply this to writing? There's no central place for the right writing solutions, but there is an ocean of great books and articles in the world. What you need to do is collect and organize the best phrases you've found, in other words to build your own Stack Overflow for creative writing. And this is how the concept of a swipe file was born in our team!

     

    Later on, we learned that the swipe file is already a thing and that it's quite popular. As we used it (a plain old text file), the browsing and searching became a pain. Fortunately, a pain that can be automated, and that's how the Conrad came to life.

    Lastly, as we aren't English natives, we've been using Conrad to develop our language skills. Hopefully, someday we'll get it up to Joseph Conrad's level (see FAQ).

  • FAQ

    what's a swipe file

    Henneke from EnchantingMarketing explains that "a swipe file is a collection of writing examples. These examples can be anything from headlines to blog post openings, and from sales emails to landing pages. Pro writers use swipe files to inspire their content and improve their skills". Read more on her blog

    why Conrad

    Named after Joseph Conrad, a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. Though he did not speak English fluently until his twenties, he was a master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. Conrad wrote stories and novels, many with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of what he saw as an impassive, inscrutable universe.
