  • No Pants is the New Pants

    I tell my clients if you want customers to look your way, you have to give them the honest-to-Pete real you. How does your product live in the world? How does it help people? Why should they believe you? What can you give them that no one else can? My advice for the adventurous: Take off the pants. Lose the pretense, the jargon and the self-aggrandizement. It is not about you. It is about what your company and your products do for your customers. That is the story I will help you tell. One of the wisest things I've ever read about product marketing came from the writer of a children's book. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, creator of The Little Prince, said, "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work ... teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea." For business owners not sure of what to do with the internet, digital media, mobile technology or social media, I am their digital marketing, content marketing and e commerce specialist. I help them figure out what draws attention from a finicky market and how to tie their marketing efforts to profitability. As a writer, I work with clients who insist upon personality, uniqueness and courage in their marketing. Content is at the heart of a thriving company. It requires doing more than just putting words on paper. It means showing customers the value you deliver. Your customer is the only one that matters in the conversation. Make sure they know that. I have worked with a lot of clients who have been willing to show their heart. Here are some of their websites: www.beards.net, www.seoriver.com, www.mywifipassword.com, www.dayoconsulting.com, www.enterprisetraining.com and www.rezoop.com. Companies are in the business of making money. Unknown territories like SEO, social media, Web analytics and new media are a little less intimidating with a little (or a lot) of help from someone whose business is marketing with messages. There are a lot of terrible writers out there. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. My hourly rate and project bid prices reflect experience, quality and innovation. Mediocre rates will give you mediocre messages that will bring you mediocre results. If you are okay with mediocrity, please look elsewhere.  less

    I have produced virtually every type of advertising and marketing piece in use today and have won both market share and awards for my clients as a result. I can apply old-school direct marketing techniques to any medium and can be as creative and original as the project requires. I can also write to very specific character counts and meet the tech requirements of any CRM system or CMS a client has in place. While I have worked in many different client categories with great success, I excel at making technical communications understandable, actionable and compelling for B2B and/or B2C marketers who wish their target audience to commit. In short, I can improve your click-through rate and make your phone ring. Major brands (see my samples) trust me with mission-critical projects and with print pieces produced in the millions. You can, too. In addition to being a highly skilled traditional and Web copywriter, I am a proven SEO expert as well.  less

    Want to DOUBLE or TRIPLE YOUR SALES using the only copywriter on Odesk that has proven copy to quintuple (that's 5x) sales by rearranging a handful of words? Online sales is a word game...I know these words and phrases. Do you? If not, read on.... Using personalized training and mentorship by a 7-FIGURE GURU and applying the time-proven sales tactics by the Gods of copy (like John Carlton, Gary Halbert, Frank Kern, and Chris Haddad), you'll run copy that can 2x, 3x, or even 5x your sales (10x-20x if your current copy REALLY sucks!). What could doubling your sales do for YOUR business? Money to outsource more projects? Start-up cash for new income-stream ideas? This is entirely possible if your copywriter understands the KEYS to UNLOCKING maximum buying behaviors...there IS a winning combination that creates a POWERFUL need in customers for your product, turning them into hyper-rabid BUYERS! You will benefit in 1 of 2 major problem areas that most entrepreneurs struggle. And the winners experience: 1) "Conversion Crushing" Sales Letters or Video Sales Scripts that will transform your hesitant, skeptical, or even cynical prospects into crazy, passionate, and loyal buyers. 2) Sales copy surgery (aka Copy Critiques). Take your EXISTING sales copy to boost your conversion rates and take your profits to a whole new level! Your internet sales video or text sales letter will CONVERT more visitors into BUYERS. You just need the right combination of words to make that happen. If you're current CASH FLOW seems more like cash trickle, please contact me.  less
