Service Description

Marketing strategy: I've created and ran campaigns that have gotten national publicity, web traffic, and have resulted in increased sales. I think very creatively, and if you're not afraid of taking calculated risks that can result in exponential success, then let's work together! I can make your product or service stand out by using powerful and engaging content specific to your target audience and specific to the type of medium (in other words, Twitter marketing copy is very different from Facebook marketing copy). In today's media landscape, you're always one piece of content away from completely changing your life and/or business. Here are some examples:
