Overview

Specialist in preparing investment industry copy with a special interest in working with brokers to expand their client base and retain those clients they already have through strengthened relationships. Good direct response copywriters who specialize in the financial industry are in high demand and hard to come by but what makes me even more rare: 15 years as a top broker. I know how the business works; I know the needs and challenges.

Also, I owned a 23-person financial planning firm at one time, so I know something about that industry,...

Service Description

I am a rare breed of animal: A direct response copywriter specializing in the financial arena. My sub-specialty is working with stock brokers to help increase their client base and retain clients they already have. What makes me special is that I was a leading broker in eastern Canada for 15 years when I recruited an above-average number of clients.

I am often more expensive than many other consultants but I do not apologize for that. I represent an investment, not a cost. You get what you pay for at a fair price - and sometimes that is cheaper than concentrating on price alone. I offer quality, on time and for the quoted fee.

If I bid on your project it is only because I believe I can help...
