NEWEGG - technology
NEWEGG.COM is the Amazon of the tech world. We sell computers, hard drives, video cards, power supplies, gaming gear and over 10 million other electronics products.
As their Senior Copywriter, I write websites, landing pages and emails that generate over $1 million in sales...every day.
Here's a sample of my work. It's for a knife and flashlight combo from a tool manufacturer called Olympia Tools:
Sure, you don’t use emergency tools like these very often. But when you do, you realize that they're worth their weight in gold. When the storm hits, the power goes out, you’re out on the boat or in the woods for the night, you’ll be glad you’ve got rugged, dependable emergency gear like this from Olympia Tools. They’re built out of top-quality materials to make sure they not only last a long time, but you do too.
Here's copy for a gaming mouse:
Every serious gamer knows that his mouse is the key to winning— that’s why he’ll often pay close to $100 for a really good one. But before you dent your plastic like that, check out this little speed demon. This has the high DPI you need, plus the fast response times, plus the programmable buttons and wheel, all for a mere fraction of what competitive models cost. So be smart— get this mouse. Then spend the rest on new games.
Here's copy for one of Newegg's weekly emails:
DJI Phantom 3 Standard Quadcopter
Just last year, a top review magazine called the very popular Phantom 3 “the best drone you can buy.” Here it is at a reduced refurb price.
DJI Mavic Pro
This refurb Mavic Pro delivers 4K video, 3-axis camera stabilization, 4.3 miles of range & more, yet it folds down neatly for easy carry.
Ambit3 Activity Tracker Watch
Meet the ultimate GPS watch for sports & adventure. With advanced features like route navigation with altitude, heart rate monitor & more.
Ray Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses
Favorites of pilots, celebrities, musicians & artists the world over, Ray-Ban Wayfarers have been an essential style statement since 1952.
Dyson DC44 Cordless Vacuum
Great for floor to ceiling cleaning, this refurbished Dyson DC44 is lightweight, recharges fast & has 2 speeds plus a washable filter.
DXRacer Gaming Chair
For long sessions either at work or playing games — or even the occasional nap — you just can’t beat the comfort of this DXRacer chair.

JENNY CRAIG - weight loss
I BEGAN MY CAREER at a 12-person LA ad agency as the AE and Copywriter on a tiny startup company called Jenny Craig Weight Loss Centers. Over the next 12 years, my work in TV, print, radio, POP and every other medium helped Jenny Craig grow from zero to $500 million per year in sales. I ended up as VP Creative for a 50-person agency.
During my Jenny Craig years, I wrote, produced & directed thousands of commercials and ads. I ran a staff of 20+ people located across the US and also internationally. At one point, my team and I were creating 20+ live TV commercials…per day.
Here’s the audio portion of a script I wrote and produced for Spectrim, one of the many weight loss accounts I ended up handling:
SANDY: I started at 310 lbs. and I weigh 118 now.
ANNCR: Sandy Clark lost an incredible 192 lbs….
SANDY: It makes me feel wonderful.
SANDY (VO): I can go shopping when I want to, I don’t have the pain…
ANNCR: Spectrim is the surgical weight loss program at Brotman Medical Center.
SANDY (VO): I wake up every morning excited.
ANNCR: If you need to lose 100 pounds or more, call Spectrim.
Ask for this free video and brochure. Spectrim. Your new life starts here. Call now.
I wrote & produced virtually all of Jenny Craig's ads for 12 years
DEAN MARTIN - drtv videos
AFTER MY AGENCY YEARS, I opened my own 1-man agency and creative shop. Because of my continual success in DRTV, I worked for not only small entrepreneurial clients but also big names like Dow Brands, Dish Network, Microsoft, Playboy and Guthy-Renker.
Here’s a sample from the TV infomercial I wrote and produced for Guthy-Renker promoting a video collection of the old and long-forgotten Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts. This began a huge hit, making Dean Martin one of the best selling video collections in history.
ANNOUNCER: Now available for the first time ever on home video — The Best of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts!
DON RICKLES: What a night! Who’re we honoring?
ANNOUNCER: Jokes, jabs, insults and putdowns—that’s what made these roasts hilarious, and makes this tape a “must have” for your video library.
DEAN: Johnny Carson is a comedian who is seen every night in millions of bedrooms across America. And that’s why his last wife left him.
ANNOUNCER: This tape features over 50 stars, and over 100 minutes of the funniest, most outrageous laughs ever seen on television.
JACKIE GLEASON: How sweet it is!
PHYLLIS DILLER: …She wants to dye her hair back to its original color. But she can’t remember it.
DON RICKLES: It takes many years to be a great comedian.
DEAN: It sure does, you ain’t reached that year yet.
LUCILLE BALL: Some performers…never have a night like this. Those are the lucky ones.
ANNOUNCER: Call now to order The Best of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts for only $19.95. It’s not sold in any store so call and order right now!
My TV commercials helped make Dean Martin videos a super hit
WOLFGANG PUCK - website
CELEBRITY CHEF Wolfgang Puck had a problem — he had a revolutionary new counter-top oven that was not only expensive, but hard to explain. So his path led to me.
I helped his ad agency find the key benefits of the new oven — more taste in less time — and then write and design a website that not only got those points across, but also close an immediate sale. It was classic direct response advertising in action.
My copy here captures Wolfgang’s voice as both the creator of the oven and a passionate lover of great food. It also explains the marvelous versatility of the new oven, lets you imagine how you’d use it in your own kitchen, and explains just enough of the science that makes it all possible.
Remember that not just the copy here but also the website design are mine.
ForWolfgang Puck, I wrote & even designed landing pages that sell
THIGHMASTER - fitness
BEFORE I CAME ON THE SCENE, ThighMaster had been tried twice before in direct response television, and failed miserably both times.
My commercial, however, managed to catch lightning in a bottle — we sold 6 million ThighMasters and grossed $120 million in just 18 months — and made this fitness gadget one of the most successful DRTV commercials of all time.
Here’s why it worked so well:
Instead of promoting ThighMaster as the all-over workout that it was, we said it was an answer for one of the toughest problem women face — hips and thighs.
Rather than using Suzanne Sommers as a mere testimonial clip, my idea was to position her as a passionate spokeswoman for the product throughout the spot and let her speak right to the viewer.
My copy is direct, hits all the benefits, and has the “us vs. them” attitude that people respond to. Here’s the audio from the DRTV commercial script:
SUZANNE: Some people were born with great legs. The rest of us have to work at it. I used to do aerobics ‘til I dropped. Then I found ThighMaster.
Every single time you squeeze ThighMaster, you strengthen and tone right where you need it. So it’s easy to squeeze, squeeze, squeeze your way to shapely hips and thighs.
WOMAN: I thought I’d never fit into these jeans again. Thank you, ThighMaster.
SUZANNE: My problem with most exercise programs is finding time to do them. That’s not a problem with ThighMaster. It’s quick and easy and you can use it anytime. And when I travel, ThighMaster travels right along with me.
PERSONAL TRAINER: All across America, people are discovering what personal trainers like myself have known for years — with ThighMaster, it’s easy to squeeze, squeeze, squeeze your way to shapely hips and thighs.
SUZANNE: The secret to shapely thighs is exercising these muscles with just the right resistance. Too little is ineffective, too much can be painful. This balanced resistance coil is designed to give you results quickly and comfortably.
ThighMaster. It’s quick, it’s easy and it really works. We may not have been born with great legs, but now we can look like we were. Order now.
FRAGRANT JEWELS - Long Copy Email
FRAGRANT JEWELS is one of those entrepreneurial success stories that a good copywriter loves to work for. Started just a few years ago in one of the founding partners’ kitchen, it’s now an online sensation selling millions of dollars worth of product a year.
And the products? They’re scented candles and bath bombs that deliver not only an amazing sensual experience, but also beautiful costume jewelry (plus a chance to win a $10,000 ring) with every purchase.
For this highly successful company, I got to write classic, long-copy emails and direct response landing pages that played up the sensual nature of the product but also guided the reader into making an immediate purchasing decision. Here’s a sample:

NUTRITION & BEAUTY
LOOK BETTER. FEEL YOUNGER. During my career, I've had quite a bit of success in getting those messages across to the public, especially through radio, infomercials and short-form TV spots.
Here's the audio portion of one of my TV commercials for Guthy-Renker's Proactiv, the best-selling skin care system ever:
ANNOUNCER: Acne sufferers: What would you pay to have beautiful skin?
Some people pay dermatologists hundreds of dollars a month to get results like these.
Others pay a small fortune for prescription medications—and endure their side-effects.
Yet the fact is, all these results, and many more…

Proactiv solution. And all that costs is about 67¢ a day.

Here's the first 90 seconds for an infomercial I wrote for Live the Source nutritional supplements.
In this opening, we hook viewers then show and promise our benefits and what’s coming up
We see key scenes from our show and hear our HOST’S VOICE explain:
Americans spend over $27 billion on nutritional supplements every year. But, sadly, most of that goes right down the drain.
Because experts say that up to 95% of what you take goes right through your body... (SFX: TOILET FLUSH)
…While cancer, obesity, allergies, heart disease, stroke and more remain at epic levels, wasting not just dollars but also lives.
But in the next half hour, you’re going to learn about something that may help to turn this situation around.
It’s a new kind of supplement. Some say it’s nothing short of a health revolution.
Because, as you’ll see, it doesn’t just get flushed down the drain but gets to your body’s cells incredibily quickly and effectively.
And it may give you 3 of the biggest health advantages you could ever have:
Get better stress resistance…
Improve your immunity to disease…
And promote good heart health…
In the same way it has helped so many others.
(TESTIMONIAL CLIPS GO HERE)
In this program, you’re going to hear from one of America’s most famous doctors…
If you care about good health, if you want to protect yourself and feel better than you’ve ever dreamed possible, stay tuned as we look at these amazing supplement.
And see scientific demonstrations never seen on television before.
You’re going to see and hear real people talking about what this breakthrough has meant to them…
And how you can try these incredible supplements for yourself, absolutely free.

PRINT & PACKAGING
ALTHOUGH i'M BEST KNOWN for my work in direct response TV and emails, I’ve also done quite a bit of print work. Here are some samples that I not only wrote, but also designed:
NEWEGGFLASH “MATCH” HANDOUT
To introduce NeweggFlash.com as a new Newegg site, I created this as a handout flyer for an industry trade show. Along the way, I came up with one of my best positioning lines: “The Hottest Deals on the Coolest Stuff.”
BIGGER SAVINGS INSERT
As one of the biggest players in online retailing, Newegg ships about 60,000 a day. So when it came time to launch NeweggFlash, it made a lot of sense to include this package insert in all those boxes and promote the big savings and range of products we offered.
SPECTRIM DIRECT MAIL BROCHURE
Spectrim was a surgical weight loss program whose clients could achieve some truly amazing results. This direct mail brochure offered interested prospects both an overview of the program and graphic proof that “Your New Life Starts Here.”
Here’s a full-page magazine ad that I wrote & designed for one of my lead-generation clients.
REAL ESTATE - Infomercial
IN MY CAREER, I’ve written, produced and directed dozens of highly successful long and short-form infomercials. Most of them were promoting either self-help systems or ways to make money.
My most successful infomercials were:
• MindPower: How to Unlock the Hidden Power of Your Subconscious Mind ($60 million in sales)
• How to Get a 2nd Paycheck — Without Getting a 2nd Job ($100 million in sales)
Here’s a sample of a real estate infomercial. It’s the opening speech given by attorney and real estate expert JIM BANKS to a live studio audience:
The Secret of Probate Real Estate
I’m here tonight to tell you about a secret.
It’s a secret that many experts consider to be the best-kept—and most powerful—money-making secret in all of real estate.
It’s a secret that “insiders”, the people who really know investments, have been using for years to rack up millions of dollars in profits.
It's a secret that is perfectly legal, easy to exploit, and practically guarantees you’ll make a profit.
Using this secret:
• A 32-year old woman made $45,000…
• A schoolteacher doubled her salary…
• This couple were able to buy their dream house…
• A retired man built his net worth to over $2 million…
And you yourself might be able to increase your monthly income by $5,000, $10,000, $25,000 or more—just in your spare time.
The big guys, the ones with all the money, the attorneys and the agents and the people on the inside, they’ve been using these secrets, these techniques for years. And they’ve made a ton of money.
It’s time the little guy, the average investor, got a hold of this information so he has a shot, too. It’s time that we leveled the playing field. And that’s what I’m trying to do.
Let’s face it-—if you want to make money, enough money so you can retire or get a big house or really enjoy your life, you’re not going to do it working for somebody else.
And unless you’re a rock star or some genius who comes up with the next Microsoft or something, there’s only one way to make extra money—-and that’s in real estate.
Real estate is the best investment in the history of the world. It has made money for millions of people—-from the guy down the block who just sold his house for twice what he paid for it, all the way back to Moses making a killing on the Promised Land.

LONG COPY - INSTRUCTIONAL
IN MOST OF MY PROFESSIONAL LIFE, I’ve been hired to sell something. It could be a product, a service or a brand.
But sometimes clients hire me to instruct or educate. They like my simple, friendly and organized way of explaining how to do things.
Over the years, I’ve written many instructional videos on topics that range from sales training to even the proper way to collect blood plasma.
Here’s a sample from a recent Tutorial I wrote to teach visitors how to use a new mobile website:
How to Use NeweggFlash ANDROID VERSION

Just a few words can have amazing power. Here are some of the best show titles, subject lines and one liners I’ve written:

PROACTIV SOLUTION — Clear Skin for Just 67 Cents a Day
NEWEGG — Right Tech, Right Price
DISH NETWORK — It's All In The Dish
I can get your message across even in very few words
WITH A LONG HISTORY of writing longer copy that tells motivating stories, I have a natural advantage when it comes to blogs.
Here are recent blog -- intro paragraphs from recent Newegg eBlasts, followed by several full 500-word blogs.
SMILE FOR THE CAMERA
Sure, your smartphone can take a nice shot these days, but aren’t you hungry for something a little better? If you are, you’ve come to the right place. This week we have a very nice selection of cameras that can not only shoot a much better photo than your phone can, but can also shoot in places that your smartphone doesn’t like to go (think: underwater). So take a good look, shutterbug, and remember that Newegg not only brings you great gear but also the great prices that you’re looking for.
Today, we spend so much time online that it’s easy to forget the importance of one of the really essential peripherals — the printer. Fortunately, when it comes to printing, we’ve got you covered. This week we’re featuring some of our favorite laser printers from Dell that are fast, precise and dependable. Plus we’ve got a nice group of new 3D printers that take the ideas in your head (OK, on your drive) and turn them into something you can actually hold in your hand. Take a look:
REFURBS: MORE FOR LESS
Hoping to see your electronics dollar go just a little bit farther? Take a look at our “refurbs”. Typically, these are units that somebody bought, then returned (sometimes without even having actually plugged the product in). Those machines are then inspected, refurbished if its needed, and then sold an often significantly reduced price. Buying refurb can be a great way to get a “nearly new” version of something you’d usually have to pay more for. Check out today’s selection now.
PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM
“Without music, life would be a mistake.” Thus spoke Friedrich Nietzsche, who actually failed as a composer before turning to philosophy. If you also share a musical passion, don’t miss today’s terrific deals on keyboards, amps and “axes”. With the right instrument and a little bit of practice, you might end up with a career that would have made even old Nietzsche jealous.
3 TOP TIPS ON TVS
This week, we’ve got 3 great reasons you need to stop putting off getting that new TV. #1: we’re offering incredible discounts on some really great Samsungs and Sonys. #2: No need to worry about whether your new big screen will fit in your car — we’ll deliver it to your home free. That’s right, free. #3: Along with your set, we’ll give you a 2-Year Warranty, also free. So, what are you waiting for? Start picking out your new TV now.
NEWEGG VS. NEWEGGFLASH — which one is better?
By Jim McNamara
Suppose you're stuck on a desert island…
Hey, don't just laugh it off—it happened to Tom Hanks in Cast Away, didn't it?
So let's say you're stuck like Tom. But instead of having a soccer ball named "Wilson" with you, you're marooned with your trusty world phone with you. You've made your calls and help is on the way. But with hours left to kill, you suddenly realize that you've got just enough battery left to for one (and only one) discount shopping fix before you're rescued.
So here's the question: do you use your last little mAhs of power to visit Newegg.com or NeweggFlash.com? In other words, which site is "better?"
Here's how to decide:
Newegg.com: the Big Daddy of tech shopping sites
Newegg.com, of course, is the site that everybody but everybody knows about. Since 19xx, it's been America's favorite source for tech products, selling as much as $2.5 billion in computers, tablets, smartphones and all manner of high-tech parts and components every year.
The site welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors a day, offers as many as 1.2 million products, and is a perennial favorite on top 10 lists year after year after year. Especially when it comes to selling computers, tablets, phones and other electronics, Newegg is truly an 800-lb. gorilla.
And NeweggFlash.com? Well, if you compare us to the 800-pounder, we're the little rubber ducky our Big Daddy likes to carry around like his little baby. We're new, tiny and a little squeaky.
NeweggFlash.com: always unbeatable prices
NeweggFlash.com is Newegg's newest, smallest and most-nimble division. Born just last year, our mission is to specialize in "flash sales" and other fast-moving deals-of-the-day opportunities. While our daddy site features over a million products daily, we offer less than a hundred—and that's on a big day. And while Newegg employs over 2500 people scattered across two continents, our entire staff of 11 isn't even big enough to earn us our own table at the annual company picnic.
We do have our strengths and advantages, however. Namely:
· On NeweggFlash.com, you can save up to 75% every day of the week
· We list only really spectacular deals at irresistible prices
· We don't only sell tech—we often feature jewelry, housewares, furniture, tools and more
· Our deals are so hot, they never last long and can sell out in a heartbeat
· Everything we sell comes with free shipping, always
2 great sites to the rescue
So which site is "better?" That all depends on what you're looking for—a huge selection of everyday bargains on tech, or a boutique selection of really spectacular deals on products you may not expect.
Either way, you can always count on Newegg.com and NeweggFlash.com for terrific savings…even on your desert island. Come shop with us soon!
TOP 10 REASONS TO GET MARRIED
…in today’s live-together kind of world
By Jim McNamara
Hey, I been there, done that. I’ve lived with women I cared a lot about and even married a few. Of course, I’ve also been through a couple of divorces and more than a few nasty breakups. But after it all, I definitely still think people should get married. And I’d do it again myself. Here’s why:
1. Life is Short
Shouldn’t you spend it with someone you absolutely adore, and vice versa? Of course, pick the wrong guy and life can feel long, all right. Like Life in San Quentin. A marriage proposal can definitely help you tell when the mojo is mutual.
2. Shows He’s a Man
Who knew? Not only is he cute, but turns out he’s actually a stand up guy who’ll take the bad with the good, even hold your hair when you’re down with the flu. Not just a poseur who can milk a cow.
3. Says You've Grown
At last. You’ve worked through your shit and come to accept that you’re actually a Very Desirable Woman, potential MILF material even. Definitely not the mess you thought.
4. Boosts Self-Esteem
After all, he’s proving that you’re #1 out of all those other girls (don’t ask for the number). You’re doing likewise (definitely, don’t reveal the number). He’s asking you, not them. Right?
5 Makes the Family Happy
Seriously, wouldn’t they sleep better knowing you’ve finally “settled down?”
6. Easier on the Kids
It helps your kids avoid feeling unloved. Or “a mistake.” Or having to explain why they can trust their parents, but their parents can’t apparently trust each other enough to tie the knot.
7. Makes It Harder to Split
If only in your own mind. Having a suitcase in your trunk is no way to live.
8. Protects You
From some unwanted advances. On the other hand, it also makes you sexier to certain Irresistible Players. You know the ones I’m talking about—the guys with the cologne.
9. Helps You Stick
Inevitably, you’ll hate him. And he’ll hate you. A few good memories and wedding pictures have helped many a girl from permanently joining Happy Hour at Heartbreak Hotel.
10. Last But Not Least:
You get a break on car insurance. Yeah, ultimately, it all comes down to things as simple as that—car insurance.

With 20+ years of experience, I know how to say a lot in very few words
