What's your problem?
Today’s marketer faces challenges unique to our digitally-driven era. You have mere seconds to grab attention before a prospect clicks or scrolls away. Assuming they stick around, you must rapidly make your point. As attention spans (and tolerance for B.S.) shrink, the best way to grow your audience is to get real. Because marketing or promotions that lean on hyperbolic messaging, lame attempts at humor, and false sincerity are destined to die a quick death.
Here's a proven solution:
I’m Rob Wagner, and I’m a creative strategist, copywriter and content producer. Whatever your marketing problem is, chances are excellent that I’ve seen it — and successful written about it — before. I create fresh, relevant work so my clients can do what they do best: Take care of business. Clients confidently call on me whenever they need:
Branding (Corporate and Personal)
Strategic Message Platforms
Video Sales Letters
How a novel project created a lifelong pursuit.
When Rob Wagner hitched a ride from Laguna Beach, California to Ft. Worth, Texas, he didn’t envision a career as a copywriter and creative strategist. He was dreaming about ice cold beer and spicy hot chili and all the adventures that await when you move halfway across a continent.
The truth is, Rob didn’t relocate to the Lone Star State to write ads. He traveled there to work with a former college roommate to complete an unfinished novel. Rob’s friend also suggested that Rob could turn his Creative Writing degree into a day job as an advertising copywriter.
Over the course of a year, Rob worked his way into the largest ad agency in Dallas, where he crafted print and broadcast work for several national accounts, including American Airlines.
Several years later, Rob returned to Orange County. Over the next 15 years or so, he worked on thousands of projects for hundreds of clients in healthcare, foodservice, technology, and retail. From direct mail to billboards, print ads to broadcast projects and corporate sales films.
The next chapter was unexpected. Rob’s parents ran a manufacturing company, and asked Rob if he’d join the firm as marketing and sales director. Rob dove in, learned all about making lighting fixtures, and worked with the company’s network of manufacturers rep across North America. It was an eye-opening education about the risks and rewards of small business ownership. The company supported the family and dozens of employees for nearly 40 years, before closing its doors when the owners retired following the Great Recession.
Mr. Wagner reentered the copywriting field with new-found wisdom and fresh enthusiasm. He brings some three decades of experience in marketing, advertising and business ownership to his work as a copywriter, content creator and creative strategist — with a special blend of branding-meets-results-getting-direct-response-marketing.
When he’s not writing killer copy, Rob loves walking on the beach, listening to his favorite music, hiking the coastal hill trails near his house, hanging out with his wife, Jan, and visiting their daughter, son-in-law and grandson in LA. Rob loves to say that a day isn’t complete without taking time to appreciate the good things in life -- and enjoying a good laugh.
