Overview

Copywriting is about more than stringing words together. It's first and foremost about MARKETING. Every one of my clients benefits from my 30+ years in the marketing trenches with a better understanding of the process. My AWAI training ensures direct-response copy that converts.

Service Description

I am a sole proprietorship, but I do have access to a group of marketing specialists in graphic design, website design and SEO/SEM and would be pleased to coordinate an entire marketing project for you.

I'm a native of Germany and a naturalized U.S. citizen, living in Sonoma County, the heart of Northern California's famed wine growing region.

Writing has been my passion since high school, and I have made a lot of money for my employers in my lifetime by finding ways of making their offerings irresistible to buyers. What is your USP? Let's get the message out!
