"Are the rumors true?"
"YES! For 25 years, I have created the most successful direct mail sales letters in the history of direct response marketing."
"Now may I create one for you?"
--Josh C. Manheimer
Are you really the world’s greatest direct mail copywriter?
Well, if not the greatest copywriter, pretty darn close. I've been featured in books titled, Million Dollar Mailings and The World's Greatest Direct Mail Sales Letters -- 4 times! Check out my mountain of controls.
Also, my peers regularly send me love letters. From copy guru, Bob Bly: "I've never written a letter to a direct mail copywriter before, but your subscription package for Writer's Digest was super!"
Are the rumors true?
I'm afraid so. Over the years, I've created the most successful direct mail package in the history of the Meredith Corporation, and the most successful package in the history of Rodale's Book Division.
I've had a five-year control for Popular Mechanics, an eight-year control for The N.Y. Review of Books, and a ten-year control for Writer’s Digest. My package for The Asian Wall Street Journal quadrupled response, and it was written -- in Chinese! In short, I'm pretty good at my day job.
Can you help us get free PR?
Sure. My track record is pretty good. Like the time I helped catapult Blanchard & Blanchard ... Stave Puzzles ... Geographic Data Technology onto the world stage. Mention their names and I still puff up with pride like a Thanksgiving turkey.
I've even helped a brilliant dancer, Natalia Alonso, realize her lifelong dream and appear on the cover of Dance magazine.
Wait! We need help with all kinds of communications.
No sweat. We can help you wrestle the octopus back into the box.
On a typical day, you might find us launching a new product for a big insurance company ... helping an author market his new book ... creating a website for a software company ... writing a direct mail package for The Danbury Mint ... or fighting child abuse by designing the website for the Horace Mann Action Coalition.
Juggling many balls cheerfully is well within our strike zone.
Who are your clients?
While most of our clients have been big direct marketers like Time-Life, Rodale Press, Meredith, Playboy, The Christian Science Monitor or Consumer Reports, we certainly enjoy assisting bold entrepreneurs with innovative ideas ... passionate political candidates who need to get their message out ... or worthy non-profits that require compelling communications to captivate and inspire.
"Your Gooseberry Patch package is making Oxmoor House direct mail history! It pulled an unbelievable response - so much so that we canceled our creative test for the next mailing, thinking that it would be wasted money!"
-- Julie Doll, OxMoor House
