Copywriting expertise

When I needed help creating website content for my wealth management client in St. Paul, I reached out to Gary Teagarden. He’s a respected content marketing strategist and marketing writer in the Twin Cities. Needing quality content on a short deadline, I thought of Gary. I couldn’t afford time to “re-write’’ a writer’s work. It had to be the best—the first time!

Within a week he was able to conduct in-depth client research and turn around rich, engaging, and effective content that I was proud to present to my client. I look forward to the next time we can work together.
