Our Blue Chip Client List

Testimonials for Jeff Laurie and Co., direct marketing creative services


“I have been involved with marketing subscriptions for over 30 years.
During that time, I have worked with many people who try their hand at creating effective promotions. Only a handful of talented copywriters consistently get strong results.

Jeff Laurie is at the top of that list. He is the first person I refer my magazine publishing clients to when they are looking for a direct mail package, a new renewal series, email promotions or more....
...The reason I turn to Jeff is not because he hits his deadlines. Not because he is so easy to work with. Not because I never have any production problems with what he delivers. Not because his fees are reasonable.

All of these things apply to Jeff. But the main reason Jeff Laurie is at the top of my list is because he consistently creates new controls,
producing work that delivers better results!"
