Copy. Design. Competitive Edge

If you're looking to put some daylight between
you and your competition, you've come to the
right writer.

My name is Jon Saunders. I'm an advertising
copywriter and creative director, and have been
for nearly 30 years. I've been lucky enough to
work for some of New York's best ad agencies
and with great clients like Du Pont, IBM, Jaguar,
JP Morgan, Merrill Lynch, Pan Am, Pfizer,
The Wall Street Journal and Volvo.

Some of the ads I created won awards. But, more
important, I learned how to create something that
really mattered to clients.

A competitive edge.

And I can create one for you.

Service Description
I write ads, brochures, direct mail packages,
Internet advertising, online sales letters,
press releases, radio and TV spots, and
Web content. Or whatever it takes to
give my clients an edge in the marketplace.

I also do the strategic planning upon
which all the work is based.

If you need more than superior writing
and sound thinking, Iíll call in the rest
of my Saunders Communications team.
Itís made up of some of the most talented
art directors, designers, marketing people,
planners and programmers around.

Or, if you have your own people, I can
work with them. I'm flexible that way.

And while Iíll never be the lowest cost
provider on Elance, youíll find my prices ...
well ... competitive.

All of which may explain why of the many
buyers who first came my way through Elance,
a good half dozen have become regular clients.

So take a look at my portfolio, my profile
and my websites.

And if you agree that I might be what it takes
to help you overtake the competition, let's talk.

Of course, thereís no cost or obligation. And
no reason not to.
