About
Maverick Adverts: Expert Long Island-Based Copywriter.

I’m Mike - a Copywriter and Creative Director based on Long Island, New York

(and yes, we say on Long Island)

I’m a classically-trained copywriter that eCommerce and SaaS brands can quickly turn to for steady, profitable results. But my skills aren’t limited to any particular industry or medium…

That's because years of hectic agency experience has made me a copywriting chameleon, capable of positioning hundreds of products and services as the ideal solution to their customers’ problems.

My Services

Brand Development & Positioning

Your brand isn’t just what your customers remember — it’s the foundation for every step your company takes towards growth. That’s why rigorous planning is so important.

 

Brand Development

Positioning covers how an idea is sold — in other words, how we’re selling you versus your competition. Think of it like aiming before you take your shot — or measuring before cutting. The more precise the position, the stronger its creative sales foundation will be.

 

You’ll get:

  • a competitor analysis

  • persona research and development

  • mission and vision statements

  • taglines and slogans

Brand Messaging & Creative Direction

No single piece of copy — let alone campaign can thrive without powerful messaging. Your messaging is the execution of your positioning, which covers how your brand’s tone of voice and distinct personality traits.

 

Creative Direction aligns said messaging with its brand for clarity and cohesion. But it goes beyond that — it helps you decide which marketing-related decisions you make down the line: what style you choose for advertising, which marketing channels you invest in, which influencers you partner with and so on.

 

More specifically, you’ll get:

  • brand pillars

  • an in-depth tone of voice guide

  • marketing channel suggestions

  • a we are/we aren’t chart

Conceptual Copywriting

Concepts are used to tell stories, which make otherwise complex ideas easier to understand and digest. This is used for more outside-the-box projects that bleed into future initiatives, rather than one-off gigs.

 

So, conceptual copywriting goes into creating taglines and shortlists, naming brands and products, structuring campaigns and brand storytelling.

Direct Response Copywriting

This ancient form of copywriting doesn’t appeal to the masses — it focuses on your ideal customer by emulating an impersonal sales pitch. Most importantly, it speaks to your customers’ core problems, proactively overriding objections and positioning your offer as the ideal solution.

 

I call this the ‘put up or shut up’ service because while campaigns can be refined over time, success is measured by immediate profitability.

Projects consist of social media ads, banners, print ads, email sequences/campaigns, direct mail, landing pages, sales pages, tv, radio and digital video scripts and more.

UX Copywriting

Shopping should be seen as an experience, whether in-person or online. Effective UX copy creates interactive online experiences that fosters customer engagement and brand loyalty.

 

This is done through crystal clear, on-brand copy that enhances the user-experience with distinction for websites and apps. Rather than pleading for the sale, UX copy welcomes visitors, creates highly-convenient navigation, thus making a purchase easier.


Oh, and if you want this copy to rank for a set of predetermined keywords, I’ll happily optimize it for search without compromising its integrity.

Conversion Rate Optimization

Landing pages are where your marketing dollars pay you back — but by how much? Even a 1-2% increase can mean hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in your pocket. Just imagine what 4-5% would do for your bottom line…

 

That’s where I come in: I’ll analyze your landing page, identify weak spots and make gradual changes to steadily increase your conversion rates over time.

Mike killed it! The copy for our email sequences, promotions and website were spot on. I really liked how informative the tone was, which didn't oversell the services, but had just enough to pique someone's interest in getting on a call and starting that conversation

Found my secret weapon and his name is Mike. He is not the cheapest, but he is worth his weight in gold. We are using him for help with Facebook ad text and he has significantly helped with lowering our cost per lead and cost per click on multiple campaigns. After working with Mike on a few projects, I wouldn't even consider working with anyone else. More work to come!

Featured Work

I’d like to preface my work samples with a disclaimer: having worked for in-house brands who are protective of their intellectual property and creative agencies who demand full credit of the work they ‘did’ — somewhere between 75% - 85% of the work I’ve done over the years is hidden behind various NDAs and is therefore, legally unshareable

 

I realize this is inconvenient, but chances are, you’ll have me sign one too…
