Sure, my opinion matters.
Yours matters a lot more.

Feedback is important. Here’s what some of my clients and colleagues have had to say about working with me. Full references available on request.

“Jessie’s a great writer with a huge range. She can handle tough, heavy-lifting financial stuff as well as short more conceptual assignments with equal ease. She gets social media because she lives it: her site/blog is fantastic. Multi-faceted, too. Photographer/author/chef/blogger. She makes the rest of us look like slackers. She’s quick, funny, smart, and a great team player. I’d work with her again in a second.”

EVP/Group Creative Director, Hill Holliday

“I had the honor to work with Jessie at Hill Holliday. She had the unique ability to quickly understand client situations and provide copy that was precisely on tone and on target. Whether Facebook posts, tweets, creative concepting, or longer form copy, Jessie always knew what to say and how to say it. She brought positive energy to the team and was a joy to work with.”

SVP Digital, Hill Holliday

“Great work gets made when you have Jessie on your team. She’s a copywriter that knows her craft and was a dream to work with. She understands who she’s talking to, what they want to hear and how to get anyone excited about anything. Good copywriters aren’t specialized in just one space and we were able to produce successful work in all disciplines while having a blast doing it.”

Digital Effects/Art Director, Hill Holliday

“Over the course of the past year, our team has worked together seamlessly to launch a new public website and a large campaign centered around the client’s new book and landing zone. Jessie Cross has played a key role in those projects as the lead writer. These two initiatives contributed to an overall messaging and design overhaul for the client, with the goal of significantly impacting public perception, client engagement, and lead generation for the business. Jessie worked closely with the client’s marketing and development groups against an aggressive timeline to help create a cohesive print and digital marketing presence consisting of multiple channels, including print, website, online advertising, email, direct mail, social (Twitter and LinkedIn), out of home, events, and a printed book and eBook. Through her work, Jessie has exemplified leadership and strategic and creative excellence in the way that she has collaborated with the wider team to achieve the goals for the business and the project.”
