Freelance copywriter/producer with 30 years (and extra pounds!) under my belt.
Here’s what people I’ve worked with and worked for say:
“Tom is a typical Iowan - Easy to deal with and a straight shooter. I count on Tom to turn out great direct response copy on tight turnarounds. He does a great job interviewing the client, whether its me, one of our staff, or directly interfacing with a Legendary Marketing client. More importantly he does a great job in taking that interview and putting it into creative results generating language in his sales letters, emails and website copy. Top qualities: Great Results, On Time, Creative.”

You’re amazing! Thanks for the copy for Lakewoods – very impressive writing that makes me want to go up there and stay! Thanks for getting it to me so fast!
Lisa Krueger, Legendary Marketing
“Tom has been a client of ours for many years and I've always enjoyed working with him. He's a very creative, very committed person, who's always been organized and in control of whatever project we've worked on together.”

This was to be a five-letter series. The first B&B letter we sent out has given us 100 hits on the site and we only sent out 350 letters so far! Amazing!
— Susan Winter, Legendary Marketing
Professionally: Great writer, very creative, can quickly grasp complex ideas and turn them into usable, effective messaging.
Personal: Very passionate about what he believes, very informed, not afraid to speak his mind, maybe needs to be more flexible, very loyal and committed when he believes in something strongly; has a great, dry sense of humor, but also self-depreciating to a degree, which is always refreshing.
— Tyler Carlson, The Principal Financial Group
“I have worked with Tom Sacco and continue to do so on occasion. We have always worked extremely well together, and I miss not being able to do so on a daily basis.
“He's an excellent writer, and I always knew if I worked with him, we'd get the job done well, it would be done quickly and we would have a lot of laughs along the way.
“We were creative people working in a bland, boring, stagnant, poorly-managed corporate situation. His laughter, experience and intelligent conversation improved my work environment greatly.”
Lori Gould, Lori Gould Design
“Tom is a good writer - he has the skill and determination it takes to succeed - and is always willing to take on new projects, no matter how big or small, exciting or boring. (The freelance writing projects I usually provide to him are the latter, I'm afraid!) He has considerable technical and conversational writing skills and completes assignments on time and within the parameters given. I look forward to his insights on the subjects at hand and appreciate his vast writing experience.
“Tom is very professional in manner, respectful, courteous and punctual. I can always rely on him in a pinch. Tom also has considerable contacts in the publishing/writing/advertising industry and is a good resource for networking and professional opportunities. I appreciate his willingness to be more than just a business associate, but also an interesting individual. His unique personality sets him apart from the freelance crowd. Many other professionals in this industry are not as caring to their clients as Tom is.”
Sarah Ruba, Editor, Benefit Edge, The Principal Financial Group
“Thanks for giving me the opportunity to give feedback on my experiences with Tom. By the way, I love working with Tom and I overlook his gruff demeanor because he's damn good at what he does. He's never let me down.”
