I have worked in marketing, advertising and PR for a long time!

I enjoy working with entrepreneurs or forward-thinking mid to large-sized companies -- especially socially-responsible ones.

I handle projects from marketing strategy to concept to writing for print or online. I also write/direct video, radio and graphic design for print or online.

I want to be the M.A.G.I.C. in my clients' marketing communications. Their Master Artist for Genuine, Inspired Connections.

Service Description

"Carolyn's writing literally dances across the page, enticing readers to follow her ... one step at a time." A quote from a very satisfied client.

I work with clients from creative strategy to killer concepts (BIG ideas) to copywriting that inspires the reader to take action.

I specialize in direct response for online as well as offline. I'm also expert at creating a brand and ensuring brand cohesion throughout the life cycle and across multi-channels.

I write all print, broadcast and all things digital ... web content, blogs, articles, SEO, emailed promotions, landing pages, sales pages, banner ads, PPC ads and video.

I write for B2B, B2C. Sectors include: Financial, investing, real estate, health care, senior care, entrepreneur, e-commerce, fashion, consumer goods, non-profits, automotive and IT.

Cutting my teeth in a traditional ad agency environment, I'm equally comfortable with BIG brands, smaller brands, entrepreneurial efforts and the ubiquitous information technology space..

Clients bring me in from the beginning for strategy direction, concepts and copy ... or just to provide' out of the box' concepts and copy for an established strategy.
