I have only one goal ... help you sell your products and/or services ...
I'm ACCOUNTABLE ... and write copy that produces revenue for my clients. I'm not a "branding" copywriter trying to make people "feel" a certain way about a brand.
No ... I want the reader to feel moved to dip into their pocket or purse, pull out a credit card, and buy what I'm selling.
Sounds crass, perhaps, but that's why I'm a maverick -- a direct response copywriter. And I'm not the only one, for the record.
“Unlike most copywriters, Scott has a great understanding of direct response copy. The kind that actually makes you money instead of merely filling the page with prose! That’s why we use him again and again.” Andrew Wood, founder and president, Legendary Marketing.

I've been writing copy for 28 years. My career has taken a couple of detours into niche magazine publishing and newspaper management. I've also written or worked on 16 books including The Book of Caddyshack: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Greatest Movie Ever Made.
But I've always written copy. In 2002, I decided to focus entirely on direct response copywriting. Since then, I've helped companies around the world sell MILLIONS in products and services.
Bio stuff...I was born in Cincinnati, then quickly moved to Canada then England. So from 7 to roughly 23, I was a full-time London resident.
I was educated at St. John’s in Northwood then Harrow School. I won a John Motley Morehead Scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated with a BA in English and Comparative Literature.
My first copywriting gig was with a company in Denver, Colorado. Then I joined Ivey’s Department Stores (now Dillard’s) in Charlotte, North Carolina as a print copywriter. I lived and worked in Charlotte for 27 years until relocating to Aspen, Colorado in May, 2016. This makes me an Aspen Copywriter.
I’ve enjoyed a career in sales, niche publishing, and copywriting... successfully implementing direct response techniques in all three areas.
I’ve written direct response copy for clients in several fields and in 11 countries on four continents.
My portfolio includes 16 books as an author or editor, more than 10,000 pages of magazine and online content plus hundreds of articles for local, regional, and national publications including Golfweek and American City Business Journals.
I’m now a full-time direct response copywriter, helping clients around the world generate revenue and leads.
I'm also a Dan Kennedy Certified Copywriter for Info-Marketers.
I specialize in the precise and creative execution of proven direct response copywriting techniques to make the reader take a credit card out of their wallet or purse, write a check, plus enthusiastically provide their email address and additional valuable information. So there.
My bookshelves are packed with books about direct response copywriting and direct marketing. I also took instruction from Herschell Gordon Lewis. I've attended the Dan Kennedy Info-Marketing Conference and numerous copywriting seminars including the AWAI Bootcamp.
In my spare time, I enjoy golf, skiing, reading about direct marketing, and asking branding copywriters about ROI. I’ve also been a volunteer soccer coach for the YMCA and Charlotte United Soccer Club.
