It was a pleasure working with Copy.ai. I spoke with Austin throughout the whole process and he answered my questions well. The assignment was clear and had thorough instructions. I enjoyed writing the blog post and would definitely be open to working with Copy.ai again!

Love, love, love. Contra is an amazing place to find flexible, creative talent. The process of getting to know independents through their profiles was incredibly easy and fast.
Almanac Client
The quality of independents on Contra is top-notch, and the onboarding process is one to model. Being able to speak with a team member to truly understand what we needed as well as offer suggestions of talent in the network was a whole new experience for me. Being a startup founder; time and money are two resources that you have to manage on a daily basis. When you are able to regain time by finding the right talent; that is a process I will continue to repeat.
