“Help! I might be in over my head on this project.”
I hear that quite often, and I have an idea for you.
First, don’t worry, and don’t panic. Second, ask for help. Whether it’s me or someone else, don’t try to go it alone.
You’ll get frustrated, it will take you longer than it should, and you won’t deliver your best work. If you have a demanding project, and you’re not sure if you can pull it off, let’s talk.
Message me here with “Stretch Project” in the subject line.
“Steve, thanks so much as always for casting your expert eye. Some really valuable insights as always. The long and short of it, we presented this on Friday. They read in silence for 10 minutes, closed the doc, slapped a hand down on it, and said, ‘You’ve absolutely nailed it!’ Great way to end the week. That’s just secured a lot of work for me over the coming year. Thanks again for all the help.”

I come alongside you and work on your project. Behind the scenes, in the background, without your client ever knowing.
I’ll give you professional one-on-one guidance throughout the project, brainstorm marketing strategy with you, give you copy-specific suggestions, and provide objective copy critiques at each stage before you submit anything to the client.
“When I landed what appeared to be a dream ‘stretch project’ last year, I turned to Steve for advice. I was immediately struck by his attention to detail in our calls and how he never forgot any point we’d discussed earlier.
He spent most of the time listening and encouraging me to voice my thoughts before offering his own well-reasoned and measured feedback.
I found these sessions immensely helpful in focusing and ordering my thoughts on the project.”

Bottom line: I help you write better copy and make you look really good to your client. Without them knowing you had help. (I won’t tell if you don’t.)
I’ve helped hundreds of copywriters with their client projects, and I’d love to help you.
If your Stretch Project™ is:
- For an honest, reputable company
- Not due for at least three weeks
- At least a $2,500 project
Then let’s talk and see if we’re a good fit (if it meets criteria #1 and 2 but not 3, see my Copy Critiques service.).
Message me here with “Stretch Project” in the subject line, and details of your project in the body of the message. I’ll get back to you within two business days.
I look forward to hearing from you!
“Hey Steve, I just finished a phone conversation with a natural health client I’d been in talks with, and they have decided they wanted to hire me as their go-to copywriter. So basically, a monthly retainer arrangement ($5,000) and 3-month trial period, with a contract to follow.
I can’t say enough what a difference your advice and encouragement made in my ability to land this client. So excited!”
