Thumbtack.com isn’t like typical local search directories that simply display business listings with ratings and reviews. Instead, Thumbtack gives you the ability to vet, contact and book service professionals the moment you find them.
I’ve had a listing as a San Francisco Bay Area freelance copywriter on Thumbtack for a few months now so I was thrilled to be highlighted today on their site with this intro:
Effective “Business” Communication
It has been said that words hold the greatest of powers, and this rings true in running a business: they can make it or break it. Seasoned copywriter Gil Zeimer knows this very well, with over 25 years of experience under his belt and having worked with some of the world’s biggest multinational companies and ad agencies. Gil runs the website Zeimer’s Advertising Shoppe, where he offers freelance copywriting and other services (direct response projects, radio and TV commercial scripts, etc.) and posts article samples and professional portfolio, among many others.
“[Being immune to pressure] is most important with quick turnaround projects such as email campaigns, print ads or radio scripts that a client discovered is due tomorrow or next week. We ALWAYS meet our deadlines.”
Not only does it pay to be a good communicator. Competence is also the key. That’s probably what has made Gil stay strong in the business for more than two and a half decades. Over the years, numerous feathers adorned this copywriter’s professional cap such as the National Crystal Communicator Award for Radio Excellence, Gold Show TV Winner at the San Francisco Society of Communicating Arts, and Print Excellence award at the Dallas Society of Visual Communications, to name a few.
“I want to be known as a creative resource and problem solver who the clients can trust for any type of project. That’s how I’ve built my reputation as a copywriter and creative director.” Read more.
