Summary of Experience
Craig has developed writing and marketing expertise over years of study, practice, and applied analytics. He earned an MBA with a concentration in Marketing from Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business. He then joined Bell Atlantic (Verizon) in a B2B marketing capacity where he was involved with product launches, writing brochures, and delivering sales training. He then went to Access Intelligence, a provider of business intelligence and integrated marketing solutions.

Craig seeks copywriting assignments with technology companies competing in the equipment, software, or services sectors. More broadly, he has the skills to write for companies that market a complex product or service in a B2B or B2C market. In these environments, Craig can tap into writing capabilities refined through his work as a consultant and account manager to some of the most prominent technology marketing organizations, including Cisco, Microsoft, and Siemens. As a consultant and advisor, Craig has produced a range of written output designed to aid in marketing decision-making. These outputs have included market, competitive, and forecast analyses.

As an Account Manager, he was self-sufficient for his sales materials which included sales presentations, email campaign copy, and customized program brochures. When bidding for consulting projects, which ranged from $10K to $100K, a succinct and well-constructed proposal letter was a must. As a result of these experiences, Craig is comfortable writing under pressure and with high expectations for delivery.

Written communication has always been central to Craig’s professional responsibilities. He uses words to elucidate and fortify. He produces persuasive prose on demand.

Projects by Industry
Marketing

Craig's marketing expertise is based upon his years as a marketing practitioner, market analyst, and account manager for business intelligence products.

Since technology marketers are the buyers of these products, high-impact thinking and effective presentation material are a must.

Projects by Asset Type
Article

Craig's article writing is distinguished by negotiating the fine line between necessary subject matter detail and losing the reader's attention by going overboard with facts and figures. These balancing skills result from his working in a variety of asset types including white papers, brochures, sales proposals, and presentation formats. Craig limits iterations in the editing process by going through several rounds of refinements before handing off his material.

Projects By Expertise
