We recently hired Steve for several Copy Consultations. In just six weeks, his advice and copy ideas helped us more than double the amount of qualified leads we were generating with our website. In addition, the follow-up emails and scripts he helped us write brought in two new big clients. Steve’s advice and writing is easily the best investment in our marketing we’ve ever made.

I used Steve’s copywriting services to revitalize the website sales page for one of my audio products and write a series of emails to my subscribers. Using his easy-to-follow methods, templates, coaching and feedback, I was able to create marketing copy that more than tripled sales.

Steve’s seminar at the CAPS national conference was terrific. It was standing room only! He outlined the principles of persuasive copywriting in a way I’ve never seen before – not because it’s radically new, but rather because it’s radically simple and easy to follow. I have been a professional copywriter for over twenty-five years, and Steve is one of the very few people whose advice and feedback I trust.
