    Direct Response Copywriter / Creative Director / Strategic Marketer

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    Salesmanship in print. That's the definition of advertising. Sadly, many copywriters get so caught up in making "cutesy", witty, or so called funny ads to impress their peers, that they lose focus on their goal. Which is, helping their company grow by driving in sales or leads. I am a firm believer in creating advertisement (and products)that are accountable. With the rising media costs, it's vital to have a copywriter who understands the importance of ROI. You need to produce ads that yield measurable results. Unless you are a billion dollar company, you cannot survive if you focus 100% of your marketing efforts on Brand building or Image advertising. If you are a young or even mid size company, if you want rapid growth and stability, you need to dedicate all of your marketing efforts to direct response marketing. The best comparison that I can think of to prove my point (that direct response clobbers brand building) is the Lester Wunderman / Columbia Records Club challenge as described by Author Malcolm Gladwell in his book Tipping Point. Although Wunderman helped Columbia Records experience HUGE success with his direct response skills, when CR was ready to try TV advertising, they hired a Madison Avenue advertising firm who solely focused on brand building. When Wunderman found out about this, he was outraged! So he convinced CR to do a split test, giving half of the budget and markets to him and the other half to the Madison ave company. They agreed. A month later the results were in. Wunderman's ads pulled 4times the results as did McCann's ads (the Maddison ave ad company). But it gets even better. Wunderman ran his ads in the wee hours of the morning when it was more economical. As it turned out, Wunderman only spent 1/4th of what McCann spent. So 4 times the results at 1/4th cost. If you would like to hire a seasoned direct response copywriter to help you create profitable ads, shoot me a note. I have studied most of the marketing legends, like the late Gary Halbert, Jay Abraham, Ted Nicolas, John Caples, John Carlton, David Ogilvy, Claude Hopkins, and I have been personally trained by Dan Kennedy. I have a solid track record for creating positive results with my copywriting skills and innovative abilities.

    Web Designer

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 22

    Design is about presenting your message to the world. Good design does this as simply and beautifully as possible. My goal is to help you present your message in a very modern and clean way; keeping the target market in mind every step of the way. Rather than get caught in trends, I prefer to focus on and perfect the fundamentals to make your site stand out. This includes: Clean designs based on a pixel–perfect grid, beautiful typography and well thought out color schemes. I work in Sketch and Photoshop to make this happen. Once the designs are finished, I code them into a custom WordPress site using HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript. I work with Bootstrap and Foundation for solid grid solutions and use Underscores as a starting point for my themes. If E–Commerce solutions are needed I will integrate your site with WooCommerce for a seamless selling experience. All of the websites I create are optimized for speed and mobile-friendliness—the way Google recommends for better SEO.
