Frequently Asked Questions

What is the 5 day challenge?

Our free 5-day writing challenge helps you kickstart a piece of your own writing in a week. We don’t tell you what to write – that’s up to you – but we do give you the support and motivation to keep writing.

  • You set a writing goal and over 5 days, reach it in small achievable steps – ‘tracking’ and checking in with us along the way.
  • We give you 5 deadlines to meet and in case you need a day off, 2 writing lives to use. But lose both lives, you’re off the challenge. Sorry :-)
  • Once you’ve kickstarted your project and written for 5 days you’ll be fully limbered up and ready to continue.

What happens after the 5-day challenge – is there a cost?

Once you’ve completed the 5-day challenge we offer you the chance to upgrade to an unrestricted, 1-year membership of Prolifiko for a one-off payment of £9.99. Membership gives you:

  • A coaching system (based on the familiar 5-day challenge process) that keeps you writing on projects of any length.
  • Free access to all new product upgrades and developments.
  • Weekly bursts of productivity advice – exclusive to members.
  • Discounted access to regular productivity webinars.

The next stage of Prolifiko is still a prototype product which with your help and support will develop and improve over the year. Joining us is your chance to be part of something really special and shape a product that we believe can help writers across the world.

I can’t find Prolifiko in the AppStore/Google Play – what’s going on?

Prolifiko isn’t available in the AppStore or Google Play. At the moment, we are a ‘web app’. This means you can use it online on your computer and you can use it on your Apple or Android device. It also means that it will have much the same functionality as any ‘normal’ app. The best way to use Prolifiko on your phone or tablet is to save it as a shortcut on your home screen. From here you can use it  in just the same way as all your other apps – read more below.

  2. Tap on the ‘share’ icon at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Select the ‘add to home screen’ icon.
  4. Tap on the word ‘add’ in the upper right hand corner.
  5. You’ll then see the Prolifiko star icon appear on your home screen like any other app.
