Comments from some of
Merrill’s happy clients

Dave Whitehouse, Manager – Red’s Shoe Barn, Dover NH
“Thanks for your online strategy and optimized web copy for our new website, we average 10-12 new sign-ups every day for our E-mail Club. It’s easy to navigate, and the copy engages our customers! Plus, we can now track all our web statistics like visitors and traffic sources.

I highly recommend Merrill if you want to improve the results from your website and online marketing. He’s an honest marketing professional and copywriter who over-delivers, has great ideas, and does what he says.”

Tim Burns – Owner, D.M Burns Security, Dover NH
“From less than 10 visitors a month and zero prospects from our website, to almost 300 visitors per month and consistent calls from interested prospects. That’s the difference Merrill’s web and SEO copy made when he created our new site.”

Greg Dollarhide – Seacoast Coin & Jewelry, Hampton NH
“Thanks for your outstanding work on redesigning my website. On my new site, I’m getting more than 10 times as many web visitors, plus I now show up on the 1st and 2nd pages of Google with my main keywords. Everyone I talk to will hear about your great website work and marketing efforts.”

Gary Mellinger, AVP Marketing, Northeast Credit Union
, NH
“I needed  new direct mail letters for several marketing campaigns written. Merrill was able to provide me with 5 letters right on time. With some examples and features of the audience and products, and a short conversation, Merrill gave me exactly what I needed to test creatives.”

Kim Cox – VP, On Top Home Improvements, Damascus, MD
“Great job! The web copy you wrote for our new website is fantastic! You conveyed our unique message, products, and home improvement services in layman’s terms, and in a way that will get our reader’s attention, and help them understand how we can help them. It’s nice to work with a professional like you who did what you said, and when you said. Plus it was nice to be regularly updated on our project.

And thank you for going over and above. The value we got from you was far more than our investment. I’m excited to work together again on some upcoming marketing materials.”

Lynne Ganley – Executive National VP, Arbonne International
“Using Merrill’s techniques in my monthly e-newsletter, within 24 hours I got the biggest response I’ve ever got in 8 years. Sales have increased, with significant growth in my business. I recommend Merrill’s book to anyone who is serious about increasing the awareness of their product or service on the internet, or even within their own client base”

Mary-Ellen McAllister – MV Media Web Solutions, N. Andover, MA
“I’m a web designer, and a recent client thinks I’m a hero for referring Merrill to them to write their web copy. At first I was hesitant about referring him, but after I saw the home page he wrote for another client, and talked with her, I knew he’d be perfect. Merrill completely met my needs by being professional to me and my clients. He exceeded all expectations, communicated with me regularly, offered valuable recommendations, and made it super easy for my team to put his copy on the website. I also love the way your copy is focused on the reader first, then for the search engines. Any web designer would be lucky to have Merrill as their “go to” copywriter.

Beth Frede, Beth Frede Interiors
“When I got stuck on the home page copy, I knew I needed help.  Thank goodness for Merrill Clark of Crestview Marketing! I could never have come up with the message and the words that Merrill did.  His use of words make the “face” of my site capture reader’s attention and focuses on them to compel them to read the whole page and more.

If you want your website copy to convey your sales message in the best possible light, I strongly urge you to talk to Merrill.  He’s worth every penny and much more!  His wonderful home page copy makes my business look great online, and will no doubt be a huge asset.”

Chris Ratte – Attorney, Beacon Title, Portsmouth NH
“After I set up a new blog site for my law practice, Merrill gave me some recommendations and advice that quickly produced new clients after I made the changes he suggested.”

Roger C. Parker, Best -selling author and book coach, Dover NH   www.publishedandprofitable.com
“When I sent out a recent email to re-engage past clients, the response from Merrill’s email copy was more than twice of the copy I wrote myself. What a great investment!”

Felicia LaBranche, Sales & Marketing Coordinator
Eastern Propane, Rochester, NH
“I’m very happy with the copy Merrill recently wrote for a web page designed to educate consumers about our oil-to-propane conversion service. Our deadline was tight, but Merrill got it done on time as promised. His logical and benefit-oriented approach resulted in strong and engaging copy. It’s obvious he spent a lot of time to understand our industry, research conversion benefits, and our target market, which should serve to improve our overall response and conversion rates.”

Amy Toussaint, Euforic Design, Somersworth, NH
“Thanks to you, my web design clients have meaningful, interesting content for their websites. You’re a pleasure to work with, and make it very easy for me to upload your copy. I also appreciate your professionalism in dealing with me and my clients, making me look good. I’ll definitely be referring more clients to you!”

Steve McFarlane – Tech-N-Go, Greenland, NH
“Merrill recommended and wrote a 3-step series of letters and also created a custom order form that added $4,050.00 of pure profit to our bottom line in less than 3 weeks from the initial mailing. My total return was almost $4 for every $1 invested.”

The Broad Family, Hampton NH
“Thanks for outstanding work you did on our letter for our sons’ People to People fundraising project. The 12% response we have received was amazing! From the 128 letters we mailed, we’ve received 15 donations, and 2 promises of donations.”

Dale Little – Business Strategist, Washington DC

“Merrill is very professional and a valuable resource. He is timely, communicates effectively, and is thorough. Plus I appreciate the fact he envisioned himself conducting my business and wrote persuasive web copy that almost immediately generated new traffic and compelled those people to call me for appointments.”

Deanna St. Hilaire – Home-based business owner, Strafford NH
“Thanks for your outstanding work redesigning my website! My site shows up on the 2nd and 3rd pages of Google now and I get 4 times more traffic than before. I’ll definitely recommend you to anyone who wants a new or better website.”

Patty Carter – Owner, Fitness Together, Portsmouth NH
“Merrill, you are the best and just brilliant with words! Thank you so much for the awesome door hangers you created! I’m so happy with the way they came out, and you did a great job putting it all together. I look forward to having you write some other direct mail and postcard marketing projects I want to do.”

Chip and Janet Hawkins – Renaissance Stone Services, N. Hampton NH
“We appreciate your hard work, and are so pleased with the words you used in our new brochure! We wanted our brochure to show people why they should deal with us instead of other fabricators, and you certainly did that, plus more. No doubt we’ll get more customers because of your ability to differentiate our business, by putting it into the right words. I highly recommend you to any business owner who wants sales copy that shows potential customers the benefits of working with them.”

Chris Glidden, Cardinal & Glidden Oil Company, Farmington, NH
“Merrill, thank you for writing copy for our new website. Your words truly reflect our company and the message we want our prospective customers to hear. I appreciate your copywriting skills, and the effort you obviously made that will help people find us online, and get them to call us for oil. Great job!”
