Eric Jokinen

frequently asked questions

Why should I hire you?

I'm an excellent copywriter.

Okay. Got any proof?

Well, I've worked for some big names like Microsoft Azure, Priceline, Carnival Cruise Line, Hewlett-Packard, Blackberry, Xbox, Nokia... 

Lots of people work for big names. Have you won any awards?

Does a "Number One Dad" award count?


Then no.  But most of those awards are meaningless anyhow.

That's what someone with no awards would say.

Look.  I don't work at a huge agency.  I'm a "scrappy outsider."  I used my passion for writing and sales to build my copywriting business from scratch.  My first job paid $0 an hour.  My current jobs pay $50.  To me, that's an award.  Hell, every new job is an award!

All right. Enough with the dramatic monologue. Just show me your stuff.
