Hi, I’m Steve.
When you’re looking for a marketing consultant to help grow your business, you want someone who is not only a savvy strategist but also a skilled copywriter.
That’s what I’m all about.
Unlike other consultants who merely give you great ideas, I also write the web pages, emails, ads, scripts, white papers, and other marketing pieces you need to put those ideas into action — quickly and affordably.
It’s a hands-on approach that often gets spectacular results for my clients.
By the way, I’ve been doing this for a while. My first client was my dad! At age sixteen, I wrote a sales letter for his business that landed him two new clients. (And got me a raise in my allowance!)
Since then I’ve worked with hundreds of business owners, helping them catapult their marketing results and grow their businesses.
What’s my secret? It’s simple. I care about my client’s business as much as they do. So when I’m advising them on strategy, or writing their copy and content, my heart is in it.
And speaking of heart, I’m not always working. (Although my wife may dispute that!) In my personal life, I’m the quintessential family man. I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. I’m also an avid cyclist, skier and hiker, which means I’m bored silly in the spring and fall.
Professional Speaker & Workshop Leader
I look at keynotes and workshops as an extension of my consulting. It’s all about helping audiences get better results with their marketing.
Over the years, I’ve been invited to speak for hundreds of terrific events: CAPS National Conference, PWAC National Conference, AWAI Copywriting Bootcamp, Scheduling Institute Dental Marketing Conference, DMA Direct Mail Day, just to name a few.
I’m also known as the go-to copywriting and content writing trainer for companies and associations. I’ve lead workshops and “copy coaching” days for such industry leaders as ACAMS, Scheduling Institute, UPS, Mindset Catalysts, and dozens of others.
A good book is a precious thing. And I enjoy writing them. My most recent titles are:
- The Everything Guide To Writing Copy,
- The Wealthy Freelancer (a national bestseller and 2010 best business book winner),
- The CMA Guide to Email Marketing,
- The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Starting A Web-Based Business,
- Persuasive Sales Writing (forthcoming).
The home-study course I created, AWAI’s Secrets Of Writing High-Performance B2B Copy, is the bestselling program of its kind in the industry.
