Adventures and achievements in copywriting

I LOVE strategizing, brainstorming, and writing captivating ad copy. Here are some of the places you may have seen my work:

I’ve been writing and selling for 6+ years now, both as an in-house staffer and a freelance consultant. Below are some of the results I’ve generated in that time:
  • Concepted and wrote 112-page direct mail catalog that sold $970,000+ with zero mention of pricing
  • Created a 3-part email series that netted $8.4MM in 60 days, from a list of 180+ day inactives
  • Consistently generated unique open rates of 25+% on a list of 2.5MM+ subscribers
  • Crafted crowd funding campaigns that generated nearly 150% more in contributions than requested
  • Grew 100K+ email list from 6% opens to 20+% opens inside a year
  • Increased blog readership from nearly zero to thousands of hits per month inside 6 months
  • Wrote company record-breaking email that generated $13,000 in sales in a single day
  • Sourced, trained, and chiefed a team of copywriters
  • Planned and executed quarter- and year-long marketing and editorial calendars
  • Bylined articles picked up by Huffington Post

Angie Colee is one of the writers I trust most to deliver the goods.

She has a killer creative instinct mixed with years of real world experience crafting, testing and optimizing marketing campaigns. She’s a natural leader who understands the importance of a deadline. Angie gets my highest recommendation.

Angie Colee, MEIM: Making Every Image Mysterious

A little background (and a dash of bravado)

I have a very strange title. MEIM.

It stands for Master of Entertainment Industry Management.

The reason for such an oddly specific title?

I once had this fantasy of being the next Shonda Rhimes (writer/creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal).

So I went to school to learn about the art of show business and the business of art.

I worked in film and TV development (the people who find the next big script and develop it for their network's brand) for several companies you might recognize. I even managed to meet some cool people.

Me and some randoms at Sundance.

My development dreams came to a close in 2010 when I was laid off from the Oprah Winfrey Network. In the wake of the layoff, I turned to freelance copywriting and was instantly hooked.

Now I use all that development experience—finding a good story, marrying it with a strong brand, and connecting it with a raving audience—to make my clients millions of dollars in profits.

I spend my spare time adventuring and finding fun places to sing.

Dangling from a bridge, like ya do.
My happy place is on stage.
