Gary Wurtzel, Digital Production Solutions, Inc.
If you have a mailbox, you’ve seen my work! I’ve made millions for clients with killer copy. I can do the same for you. Put a winning track record to work for you. My “battle” training came from the muddy trenches of “succeed or else” mail order campaigns. In print or online, let my talents become your “secret weapon”—reaching out from the page into the reader’s mind, heart... and wallet.
SELECTED ACCOMPLISHMENTS I CAN’T WAIT TO TELL YOU ABOUT...
… Like how I helped a industrial high-tech company smile by delivering humor plus product benefits in a viral video campaign.
... Or how I created 13 years of winning controls as the “star” copywriter of a major New York direct marketing firm.
… Or how I got a start-up publisher international coverage on a shoestring through online PR, viral marketing and optimized blogging.
… Or how I saved a failing business with a single sweepstakes direct mail package that pulled over 8% response!
… Or how I revamped a lackluster business-to-business catalog and increased sales by 17%!
AND JUST CHECK OUT HOW I...
… Made it into the advertising history books with a single mail-order ad that brought a dead product back to life and sold out the entire inventory!
… Gave rival groups a fit when I maneuvered the press relations for a lead profile article in the New York Times Magazine so as to effectively outflank other organizations. They didn’t even get mentioned!
… And much, much more.
