Do you find yourself constantly critiquing emails, landing pages, sales letters, video scripts, and ads because you KNOW you could’ve written them better? Have you studied the likes of Gary Halbert, John Carlton, Clayton Makepeace, Gary Bencivenga, Joe Sugarman, David Ogilvy, Dan Kennedy, etc.? Are you looking to pair your love of copywriting with an organization that LOVES direct response marketing and wants to showcase your specific and unique skill set? If you answered yes to the above, you may be JUST the Copywriter we're looking for! We're looking to hire for a new **full-time position** located in sunny Tempe, AZ.
