Targeted website design copywriting editing by Dave Turner Creative

Driving desired results

Dave Turner talks about philosophy when it comes to website design, copywriting, editing and creative services for business:

Creativity is critical in breaking through the clutter, but the design and message must also be sound enough to do its job once it gets there. This requires strategic thinking, a strong eye for design, web development expertise, excellent writing and ample experience.

"I've been in this business since the typewriter was still a tool of the trade. My first class assignment in the College of Journalism at the University of South Carolina was to sit down at an IBM Selectric and write a press release. There wasn't a computer in the room. The information age has ushered in a lot of change, and I mean fantastic, positive changes that have helped everybody work better and smarter. But one thing hasn't changed. Businesses still need to communicate effectively (in fact it's probably more important now than ever). This requires a balance of creativity and sound strategy across the entire spectrum of integrated marketing communications. Technology hasn't changed the fundamental end-result of human communication: the exchange of ideas to drive desired results.

"Many titles exist for what I do. Website designer. Copywriter. Editor. Freelance writer. Business writer. Marketing communicator. Wordsmith. Copyeditor. Press release writer. Editorial director. Creative director. Advertorial journalist. Website content provider. Blog writer. Online copywriter. But it all boils down to this: I'm a writer for hire and my job is to help my clients reach their marketing and communication goals.

"Let's discuss your desired situation and how I can help you achieve it."

-Dave Turner
