I have been an advertising copywriter since 1973, starting at a small agency in New Jersey. In 1976 I was recruited by a New York City agency, thus I embarked on my first job in the “big leagues” on Madison Avenue. As I moved up the ladder to become a Copy Chief in 1983, I gained valuable experience on a wide variety of accounts. In 1984 I left the 9 to 5 world and embarked on a freelance copywriting career until 1985, when I founded Schachter, Grambor & Associates, Inc. with art director Les Schachter. Our agency was responsible for a number of client success stories, notably taking Information Builders, Inc. and their software system FOCUS from a $400,000 enterprise to $6,000,000 in four years (remember these are 1980’s dollars). As an owner of this agency I functioned as creative director/copy chief, managed all corporate operations, hired, fired and supervised employees and headed up new business acquisition. We enjoyed the privilege of servicing a number of prestige accounts such as Pfizer, Siemens, Abbot Labs, Bard Urologicals, Posey and others.
For samples of my content writing, please see my two web sites at www.VascularPRN.com and www.BracesBandagesAndBeyond.com These sites drive sales for my former business, Tampa Medical Supply, Inc., and I am responsible for their content. I sold Tampa Medical Supply, Inc. to Clinicare Medical Resources in October, 2019 and am now at liberty to seek freelance work.
