Story
Tagline
Writer, Editor, Copywriter, Marketing Consultant
Introduction
Mordechai (Morty) Schiller is a wordsmith and marketing maven—a writer, copywriter, editor, writing coach, publicist, marketing strategist and tactician. Master of the art and science of writing that works.
Bragging rights
My mother told me it's not nice to brag, so I'll leave it to other people——Steve O'Keefe, author of "Complete Guide to Internet Publicity," wrote: "Morty Schiller is an awesome direct mail copywriter—old school, back when you had to pull three percent or hang up your pencil.... Morty is a copywriter extraordinaire... a blend of old-school copywriter and new school blogger.... The world needs writers like Morty Schiller—truly it does!" ——Ted Demopoulos, coauthor of "Blogging for Business," wrote "Morty knows his words and how to use them...truly great writing: simple, clear, easy to follow, apt to horrify your uptight unpleasant English teacher :)" —— Jason Alba, author "I'm On LinkedIn – Now What???" wrote: "Wordsmith Morty Schiller...is a professional writer. In fact, he writes junk mail. Lest you think that is bad, or he is evil, I point you to his Confessions of a Junk Mail Junkie article. This is a guy who understands his business, and the perception thereof, and is not afraid to address the perception. Morty Schiller’s brand comes across as someone who is competent. And passionate about what he does. And credible. And if I had something that could benefit from a direct mail strategy, I would be compelled to talk with Morty."——Direct Response copywriter and blogger Ryan McGrath wrote "Bob Bly has called him 'one of the nation's top mail order copywriters"…which is nothing to sneeze at!...What I really like about Morty is he’s been in direct mail for years and is still going strong. He’s not just a student of a particular medium – direct mail, Internet marketing, etc. – he’s a student of human nature."

"Ja well no fine..." Afrikaans-English slang for "As you like" when not really agreeing, or being uncertain....not that I have anything to argue against your assessments, but it would be interesting to see how this would translate into "Modern Hebrew" or "Israeli"!!
