A few examples of our work:
We worked extensively with Golf Tailor to help them sell tuition programs from some of the finest instructors in the world, including Tiger Woods’s coach and several PGA pros.
Many of our pieces for Golf Tailor become long running controls, and our first ever piece netted $1.85 profit per click from heavy media buying.
We were retained for an ongoing project by Brewer Consulting, a marketing firm that focuses on finding clients for financial advisors. Our funnels and copywriting angles brought prospects to in-person workshops for just $21 a head – industry standard is closer to $200.

WHAT IS Direct Response COPYWRITING?
The term direct response copywriter – or even “copywriting” – is one of the most misunderstood concepts in marketing. What is it exactly?
It’s the combination of two very important elements…
1) Direct Response Marketing:
a type of marketing that elicits a specific, measured response resulting from a consumer’s direct response to a marketer.
art and science of writing copy (words used on direct mail, online ads, etc.) that sells your product or service and convinces prospective customers to take a specific action.
In other words…
a direct response copywriter uses the art and science of writing words that sells your product or service and convinces prospective customers to take a specific “direct” response.
While writing itself is a fairly subjective subject, when it comes to copywriting there are some tell-tale signs of whether the copy is “good” or “bad.”
Key traits of the best direct response copywriters:
- strong track record of success in your niche
- they’re a great listener and WANT to understand the details of your project (not just rush through it)
- they research your competitors and current successes/failures BEFORE typing a single sentence
- seek to understand the entire marketing funnel and where the reader will be on their customer journey when they read the copy
- ability to adapt and write in whatever voice/tone is most relatable to the audience

“Your job is not to write copy. Your job is to know your visitors, customers and prospects so well, you understand the situation they’re in right now, where they’d like to be, and exactly how your solution can and will get them to their ideal self.” – Joanna Wiebe
