I am extremely experienced in writing, editing, publishing, and promoting brands and products. For decades now, my passion has been to present my clients to many thousands (or millions) of prospects, especially since 1997 when the internet became my channel of choice.
In addition to my experience and skills, I bring my own toolset, which has proven to bring cost-effective results. I am the founder/owner of The CityRoom Publishing Group, comprising nine websites, private syndication, and a unique publishing strategy that can place your brand and your message in front of a large audience. My experience makes me an atypical candidate for the role you've advertised. Yet, it is because of this experience that I able to accept a position with these criteria:
* Performance-based compensation. Whether for commission or payment for reaching specific goals, I work best knowing that there is no ceiling on potential earnings. * Project, rather than process. I prefer a startup to long-term managerial activities. * Fast pace. Work harder and reach goals sooner. * Flexibility in setting my schedule and working environments. I haven't worked in a real office in over 25 years. * Senior prospects and colleagues. I prefer to work with people who have already grown up. * Products or services that appeal to me personally, such as travel & tourism, oenology, books (prefer fiction) and publishing.

Since the early 1970's, CityRoom has focused on marketing communications and consultative/relationship sales to help drive profits to product and service companies. Since 1994, my tools of choice have come primarily through the internet. Now, as the web is nearing a point of saturation, the resurgence of old-school skills, augmented by technology, continue to be our evolving focus.
