Friends since childhood, Josh, Ben, and Dom grew up in Washington Township New Jersey, a suburb of Philadelphia.
At a very young age they knew entrepreneurship was in their blood. When they were only in middle school, they built a makeshift "casino" in Josh and Ben's basement and hosted casino nights and poker tournaments for friends and neighbors. The regular parties became so popular they enlisted the help of nine of their friends and taught them how to run games, handle chips, and even spot would-be card counters who could try to swindle them out of monopoly money.
Even while they attended "formal education" they knew they wanted to start a business together. In 2016, they decided to take the plunge and start an info-marketing company centered around self-improvement.
The trio quickly found out they needed to learn copywriting if they wanted to succeed, so they dove in and began studying every book they could find on how to write effective sales copy. Dom spent his entire life savings to attend an exclusive copywriting bootcamp in California with some of the best copywriters in the world, and all three spent countless hours painstakingly writing classic sales letters by hand.
As they soon realized, the info-marketing business couldn't survive on pure hustle alone. Without any funding and only a few audiobook sales to show for their efforts, they went out of business in 2017 — only a year after they started. But it turned out the real story hadn't begun.
While working side hustles and odd jobs to make ends meet, the three continued to hone their skills as direct-response copywriters. They continued to write regular newsletters to their small email list, and soon they found their way into a mentorship group for aspiring email copywriters.
In 2018 Josh, Ben, and Dom made the decision to return to the marketplace and rebrand their company as The Email Agency. This began a new mission — to help other successful online businesses grow with the power of direct response email marketing.
Soon they had their first clients, and all the hard work of the past years slowly began to pay off. Within a year they had successfully grown multiple e-commerce businesses at an exponential rate.
As of 2020, The Email Agency has sent millions of emails and generated multiple seven-figures while servicing clients across a range of niches including apparel, leather goods, home decor, biz opp, gaming, office furniture, CBD, health supplements, survivalist/prepper, and B2B financial services.
The Email Agency is on a mission to multiply the profits of 1,000 companies with direct response email marketing and copywriting.
