RLP Copywriting

My name is Robin Pack and I am the owner of RLP Copywriting, a home-based copywriting service located in the Mount Eden/Lawrenceburg area. My business hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm, but I check emails and messages throughout the day. I can be reached by phone or text at (502)680-4492 or email at rlpcopywriting@gmail.com.
 
You may be wondering what exactly I do as a copywriter. Simply put, I use my words to connect your target audience to your business. Any words you see in an advertisement, whether it be in an email, your mailbox, on a bulletin board, or a website, that was created by a copywriter like me. Mark Twain summed it up perfectly when he said “The difference between a good word and the right word is the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.” I will be the lightning for your business!
 
To kick off my business and celebrate becoming a Chamber Member, I will be offering a new or update an existing About Me page for only $100. This offer is for fellow Chamber Members and only until April 9, 2021.
