    Copy for High Close Rates and More Leads

    United States - Portfolio: 45

    My 10-page book outlines produce a 50% close rate for my book-marketing client. My new copy helped drive a 25% increase in sales on a niche dating site. One of my direct mail letters helped my client to get Oprah to talk about her product and a major retailer to sell it. A direct mail letter for a coaching services client produced a 13% response rate. The bottom line: I am a crackerjack wordsmith in a world of mediocre ink slingers—and I can help you generate more leads and/or seal the deal! Some people write flawlessly and with pizazz, some deliver on almost any subject, and others are detail-oriented, technical types who can translate for the laymen among us. When you engage me you get all three in one creative powerhouse of a service provider, PLUS the bonus of a consultant and adjunct steeped in business strategy and tactics.
