"Standing in the midst of 28 vaccination lanes in the stadium parking lot, the Governor also announced the Team Kentucky Vaccination Challenge: when 2.5 million Kentuckians have received at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, Gov. Beshear will remove capacity restrictions and physical distancing requirements for nearly all venues, events and businesses that cater to 1,000 or fewer patrons. Gov. Beshear said he would also end the curfew for bars and restaurants when this goal is met."

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.
