Hi I'm John, a guerrilla-communicator of the copywriting world. Give me a brief and I will entertain, engage and enamor your consumers while selling them you and your products. The search engines like me too ;) I believe that your readers are too street smart for full tilt self-promotion. I also believe that they deserve content that delivers value and meaning to their lives. Blogging, e-commerce and brand identity have fallen prey to the laws of reciprocity.... If your content can give the customers something for nothing - entertainment, education and good old story telling - they will stick around. So, if you have: - world-shaking ideas but no cashmere loom of auto-transcription... - a fledgling brand identity needing some joie de vivre... - elegant data sets that you want heard by the world... John can craft you content with value. "John is highly calculated exercise in risk aversion against customers forgetting who you are seven minutes after they've seen your copy." - Paul Davidson of Hasty Homes -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Brand and Web-Identity Creation:.. I am a partner in the e-business LaurelLeaf Design. See our site to see our range of services in detail. Briefly, LaurelLeaf offers modern businesses a publicity injection: - Web and logo design - Small to medium business marketing strategy - Brand creation - Public relations - syndication of your media releases, marketing, brand exposure Thanks for reading my description of services. I look forward to working together to create the value you deserve.
