Hi. I'm Julie Ross Myers.

Over the last 30 years, I've written 6,630,000 words. That's the equivalent of 73 novels.

If you're on this page, you probably want to know if I'm someone you want to work with. Okey doke, let me try to answer that for you.

I love what I do. After three decades, it still thrills me. Copywriting and the marketing ideas that drive it are the ultimate game of chess.

It's not just the creative  angle involved in creating a brand or a smart strategy. It's the satisfaction of helping a small business win despite a thousand challenges. Ultimately, I love knowing I have played a part in the creation of solid new jobs in a difficult, smoke-and-mirrors economy.

Why I ditched a six-figure income.

Back in the day, my salary and two solid freelance clients easily cleared six figures. But, writing is about more than money. I want to feel good about the clients I serve and the work I produce.

In theory, going freelance full-time meant I could pick and choose my projects. But Miami is mucho expensive. Too often, I wound up working for nightmare clients just to stay afloat.

So a few years ago, I chucked everything and moved to Edgewater, Florida. It's a small town with nothing going on, but the low cost of living offers economic freedom and the slow pace gives me time to think.

What can I do for you? 

Here's the truth: no one can promise specific marketing results. No one. There are just too many variables.

When a writer says, "My blog post increased traffic by 400%," you have no way of knowing exactly what that means. 

Testimonials are worthless because most clients don't know how to evaluate copywriting. Sorry but true.

So, while I can't promise specific results, I can promise I will refund your money if I fail you. Just tell me where you feel I went wrong.

What others say

I work with many celebrity clients and they all want privacy. My website takes an understated approach but the emphasis on confidentiality is clear.
