"Oy, gevalt!" my mother said to me years ago. "You'll starve for sure!"
She was talking about my decision to reject medicine and become a copywriter —
— a copywriter who regularly gets love letters like these from his clients …
"Your direct mail package for More Magazine indexed at 200 doubling response. That doesn't happen too often in magazine history and is the first time it's happened at Meredith." --Ellen de Lathouder, V.P. Creative Services, Meredith Corporation
"Your Trigger package now tops our winner's list as the BEST-EVER direct mail package for Rodale books with results 2 to 1 over the standard! In fact, response was so high, we had to change the print run." --Kathi Ramsdell, Promotion Manager, Rodale Press
"Did Jennifer tell you that our Gooseberry Patch Christmas Cookbook package is making Oxmoor House direct mail history? It pulled an unbelievable response - so much so that we canceled our creative test for the next mailing, thinking that it would be wasted money!" — Julie Doll, Promotion Manager, Time, Inc.
Still, my mother would groan, “Why couldn’t you become a rheumatologist like your father!”
I may never be able to persuade her that crafting the world's greatest direct response marketing is a worthy and honorable profession, but surely you’ll appreciate this little fact ...
Type “direct mail copywriter” into your google search box.
Then you’ll better sit down and grab hold of your armrests.
Out of 500,000 hits, you’ll see, I come out #1.
Interested in my services?
Just throw a stick and watch me hit the ground running.
All The Best,
