About

My name is Dave Gillen. I’m a direct-response copywriter.

That means every time I write a sales message, it needs to move people. Literally. Move hands out of pockets to dial your number, or pull out their credit card, or sign a contract.

It’s ambitious. The stakes are high. I love it.

Who taught me?

I learn from the masters of direct-response advertising.

  • Drayton Bird: Gives me feedback on my copy
  • Gary Halbert: Never write to a generic audience
  • John Carlton: Be extreme to be clear
  • Howard Gossage: Treat the reader as a person
  • Robert Collier: Talk about the reader first, your product second
