Friendly Creatives provided innovative business management services for longstanding writing services website WriteMovies in 2020, achieving growth amid the global pandemic.

We provide business management services for this longstanding Hollywood script website, founded by a former Quentin Tarantino agent in 1999 – and in its 21st anniversary year we achieved company growth in the midst of a global pandemic. We did this by innovating and designing new services and products, and marketing them.

New business management services we launched in 2020 included:

  • One of the templates Friendly Creatives provided for WriteMovies in 2020 for ongoing use with images and text.

    We organised for WriteMovies Director Ian Kennedy to deliver a highly successful week of pitching meetings in Hollywood, and a successful related promotional campaign – which turned out to be a week before global travel became restricted due to lockdowns!

  • We launched a new Instagram account, and managed a body of ongoing marketing on the company’s social media platforms and newsletters, all of which continued to grow during the year, and also a paid social media advertising campaign. We provided new templates for the WriteMovies team to easily create high-quality new graphics that built up into bigger ‘film reels’ across their profiles and for animations.

    We launched the WriteMovies 100-Day Creative Challenge, specifically to help writers develop their writing and their understanding of the industry at the same time during lockdowns, with a series of free daily challenges for them to complete and submit. This included many original designs and activities and feedback for the world’s aspiring writers to use to keep on a positive journey throughout the global challenges.

  • We also launched WriteMovies Academy Lite, which offers subscribers daily PDF resources and writing activities for $99 a month (under $5 a day), again aimed at helping the business audience and writers successfully navigate the challenges of 2020.
  • We also launched WriteMovies’ Ghostwriting service, which makes award-winning writers (selected by WriteMovies) available to anyone who has an idea for the next Hollywood classic, so that one of WriteMovies’ talented screenwriters can turn that idea into a compelling screenplay to pitch to the industry.
  • We also took on an apprentice, to help us grow the business and diversify the business content while also supporting a young person to get through the pandemic successfully and establish their career in the creative industries.
