A CD friend of mine is looking to hire a senior copywriter who can actually write copy.
I’m sure this is a great opportunity but whenever someone requests a Copywriter ‘who can actually write’, it always make me think of churning out Whitepapers on Cloud Computing.
Why does he want a copywriter? No one reads copy and everyone knows the client ends up writing it. I used to write the beginning joke and the end joke (they can’t do that bit the thickos) and let the client fill in the middle bit. Saved everyone’s time.
He’d be better off hiring 12 old women from Saffron Waldon and passing all the ads past them and whichever they like is the one he should approve.
What kind of agency is it?
An advertising one, obv.
But any more clues?
Small, friendly, successful, etc
Medium. Very successful. ATL. Little bit of digi. No whitepapers on cloud computing.
I can write short, write long, write funny, and write thoughtfully. I’ve even written a book. Oh, and I can concept too.
Don’t know if I can write, but I can copy.
Does that qualify me?
we should team up, j. i can paste.
Sweet. I hear that’s exactly the kind of combo clients look for nowadays.
deal. mary j. we will be super rich and famous quicker than they can gasp for breath.
We need to take a look at advertising regarding these riots and looting. The looters were trying to get trainers, mobile phones and ipads. We promote a fantasy that these “things” will make people happy. A lot of it is our fault.
I’m a copywriter. Where can I find out more please?
@Shame – Oh do shut up.
Mary J. has a ring to it. Forget teaming up, let’s start our own shop.
you might have a point there shame, but if it wouldnt have been trainers etc., it would have been something else. its consumer society.
i would reject the general assumption that the looters are a bit stupid and easy to influence. they just dont care. maybe because no one cared for them?
crazy when it takes those means to realise dreams. what the fuck happened to them that would cause such nightmares.
we need an office to impress clients. im screening pics of looted shops.
You shut up George.
Let’s just get clients to meet us in ravaged, abandoned warehouses. That way they’ll think we’re ‘edgy’. And creative. Or something.
Hey Ben, can I email you one piece to demonstrate that as an Essex Wheelbarrow Boy that I can write. It’s only 29k… and funnily enough that’s my monthly salary requirement;-) Ho ho ho if that’s my Christmas laugh, then what will I do for the rest of this blog?
lets get a warehouse in detroit. fuckin edgy. and enough space on the property for a client heli. and mad parties.
dean webb is very very very very good.
And so am I, anon 22. (Ask mary)
no need to ask me, j. and you are fun to goof around with, obviously. something that should never ever ever be underestimated.
