Knowledge should be free.
Freelancers need better access to knowledge, skills, and tools to build thriving careers. That's our focus.
Hey Rebekah is a free daily newsletter for freelancers. Everything we create is available for free to our readers and always will be. Not on the list? 👇🏼
Who TF is Rebekah Radice?
According to the interwebs, Rebekah Radice is one of the top digital marketing experts in the world. She's an OG influencer and a self-employed professional since 1998.
In 2019, she started BRIL.LA, a woman-owned CX agency with her longtime colleague Ambreen Dar—who prefers protegé, not sidekick.
Hey Rebekah came about after receiving thousands of questions from the community. We realized we could do a lot more to help self-employed professionals everywhere.
We're starting with a free daily newsletter to do just that.
Together, we're on a mission to help freelance professionals build thriving careers, so they can experience the joy of financial freedom and success.
Let's check the replay
The Hey Rebekah fam has been hustling together since 2013. Our combined experience is off the charts high, reaching almost rude-to-ask levels. But seriously, we're lucky to have worked with wicked smart people.
Realizing we still got a lot of game left, we're committed to passing on our Legos and open-sourcing our playbooks. Some milestones we've achieved:
Since 2001, we've helped businesses acquire over 317,000,000 users. Holy crap, that's a lot more than we thought.
We've implemented strategies to convert a shit ton of prospects to customers for our clients. Hmm, we should've started a business earlier.
Yeah, we've done well. But there's a lot more to fulfillment too. We're open sourcing our playbooks to help you make more money than we ever could.
Net Promoter Score®
We asked 100 of our former clients about our work. 96 would highly recommend us. 4 wouldn't come near us again. Hey, nobody's perfect.
Bottles of Pepto Bismol
Dayyum, the journey hasn't been a cake walk. But we're still at it. Part of why we're here is to help you avoid the costly mistakes we've made.
Hair follicles on heads
OK, yes, we needed an attention grabbing metric to balance the flex child layout of this component. But seriously, Sam’s hair loss is no joking matter.

What's important to us
We imagine a world where all freelancers have fair opportunities. They can learn, grow, and thrive in their career. Plus, gain access to tools that help them make more money and find their joy.

We love our planet

People say I'm a digital marketing expert. I've been self-employed since 1998. I'm from sunny southern California. I adore my two boys and their partners.
I'm a grandma! My husband is my best friend. We love going for long rides on our bikes and spending time at the beach. We cheer for the Steelers and the Cubs to win. I enjoy traveling and super spicy foods.
Hey Rebekah is a free daily newsletter that will help you become better at what you do in six minutes every morning. Think of it like Morning Brew for freelancers, without all the readers.
We're going to be launching playbooks, courses, apps, and live events to help freelancers build thriving careers, make more money, and find their joy. Everything we produce for our readers will always be free.
We thought you'd never ask! ☺️ In fact, there's no better time than the present because we're pre-launch and have no idea if this will even work. So you've got all the leverage. You can reach out to our sponsorship team to get started.
All of our newsletter posts are available in our Archives. Anyone can access them online anytime without a gate. For our full range of content, please subscribe to the newsletter.
We only share anonymized performance metrics. We never share personal information unless you have specifically opted-in to sharing it with them.
We're so glad you asked! You can see a list of our current Partnership Program companies here. If you've got something cool that our community would benefit from, we'd love to hear from you. We ask our partners to provide an exclusive, unpublished discount code for our readers instead of an affiliate commission for us. In return, we'll promote the heck out of your product across our community of over 300,000. No brainer, right?
Like a boss baby! 🎤 Actually, we don't, for now. We're building an incredible resource for the freelance community. We'll figure out monetization later. It'll probably come in the form of sponsorships and curated ads within our publication. We don't make money from affiliate links.
Of course, we're recruiting wicked smaaght people to teach us a thing or two about writing, coding, and editing. If you're up to it, you can check available job openings here.
We would love to hear from you. Please reply to any of our emails- we read every one or send us an email.

Our team consists of senior freelance and long-time self-employed professionals. We've been working with clients since forever. We wanted to shift our focus to something with purpose.

All of the content we produce for our readers will always be free, period.
