What Our Clients Say
– John Perls, Owner, Creative Director Crazy Mouse Media Advertising
“Congrats man. The nursing ad got 110 phone calls the first day it ran. Nice job. Thanks again for all your hard work.”
– Paul Cirigliano, Creative Director at Morello+Company
“Conrad Winter… Where do I start? To label him a copywriter is an injustice to his array of talents. He is a joy to work with to say the least—and to say our brainstorms and collaborative sessions are fun is a complete understatement. His impulsive and spontaneous approach to thinking, writing and creative collaboration is additive. He has helped us develop some of the most dynamic, award-winning advertisements that the agency has to show for—he is a true benefit and resource to us. The best compliment I can pay Conrad is usually my last words to him as he heads out the door…”So when you coming aboard?”
– Christine Anderson, Owner Rowhouse Design
“Working with you is always fun and inspiring. I always feel confident that we’ll come away with some kick-ass work.”
– Scott Rimland, President Cardinal Development
“Conrad did a great job getting our yellow page advertising to work for us. We were spending a lot of money on advertising that was getting lost in the crowd because it looked like every other ad in the book. Conrad was able to come up with a concept and then put together copy and graphics that conveyed the message we were trying to get out to our customers. Conrad is both creative and professional and very easy to work with. We look forward to working with him again.”
– Creative Director Tracy Locke
“Thanks Conrad! The work you did for us was great!”
– Anonymous Designer
“Conrad, thanks again for the work you did for the Verizon Direct Mail Piece… The client really enjoyed all the ideas.”
– Anonymous Marketing Director
“Conrad Winter? What an ace copywriter. I just recommended him to MetLife for a huge project they are thinking of doing.”
What does it take to become a “shipping partner of choice?”
Use referrals, case studies, and video to demonstrate proof of performance. Perhaps the greatest takeaway I received at the recent Transportation Sales and Marketing Association conference came during the shipper panel. It was the opportunity to listen to a panel of prominent decision-makers live and unfiltered. The panel members are part of a very elusive […] Continue Reading →

So how does your buyer persona feel about your website?
Part 1 of my guide for ensuring your website content is genuinely customer-focused. There’s an anecdote in How to Win Friends and Influence People, where author, Dale Carnegie recounts the story of meeting someone at a party who talked nonstop about themselves. Carnegie hardly said a word, but after the party the person recounted to […] Continue Reading →
Add peanut butter to your website’s career page copy.
One of the best things about freelancing at this one company was the copious snack collection offered free to all workers. Granola bars, fruit, juice, chips, artisan coffee—and yes, fresh peanut butter right from the machine. So when it fell upon me to write a career page that portrayed the company’s outstanding opportunities as […] Continue Reading →
WANTED: Non-weird, Non-hermity Copywriter
I remember my first official freelance assignment like a dream that never was. I was working from my kitchen table. Framing my computer screen was a pretty view of the apartment cluster’s courtyard. The smell of coffee mixed nicely with the scent of salt air from the beach a block away. I remember sighing […] Continue Reading →
Snowplow races and why paying a project fee beats hourly every time.
My house backs up to a cemetery and fronts up to a small but busy cul-de-sac maintained and plowed by our town. During a snowstorm, the cemetery side is where all the action is. Without exception, the guy who plows their roads has theirs cleared and salted hours, sometimes days, before the city sends […] Continue Reading →
