Tom Opdyke

Senior, edgy corporate story-teller for PR, marketing, voiceover


Atlanta, United States


Move to the new trend in storytelling that adds fresh voices, speaks with emotion and “Kodak moments,” and substantially increases sales wins. I tell stories in Wall Street Journal, contextual ways – user quotes, metrics, graphics and compelling closing statements and CTAs – that drive sales. Among my clients: one of the top Customer Relations Management systems; the world’s largest internet-based logistics firm; financial services and real estate companies; and major enterprise software companies. ODesk thinks so much of my work that I have been their storyteller for more than four years. Whether B2B or B2C, I deliver marketing collateral that ... moreis so superior your sales staff will beg for more: case studies, PowerPoints, webinars, videos (I produce but do not shoot) and social media. Member PRNewswire, PRWeb. I bring more than two decades of award-winning print and broadcast journalism experience and my deep national and international contacts. Because I have been a news and business editor and producer, I know how to frame and pitch stories and events, and write compelling copy. Let’s build an edgy, value-added campaign that makes a lasting impression and yields sales wins again and again. My work is cost-efficient because I am clean and fast, and I never miss a deadline. I respect your work and enthusiasm, but please do not contact me unless you have a progressive vision, are open to new ideas and sincerely want to smash through conventional marketing. less
