Beverly "Bev" Barker learned direct response copywriting at Ogilvy & Mather where she climbed the ranks by brainstorming new product concepts and working with account supervisors to develop her marketing skills. She has experience working in team environments and can beat tough deadlines.
Since moving from New York City to northern Virginia, Bev has turned her attention to how technology has leveled the playing field for small businesses to compete and succeed. She uses today's "one-on-one" communication model vs. mass market advertising.
