"Writing website content can truly be a painful experience to say the least! After 30 long frustrating hours, I realized the punch and flow of my copy was just not coming together and that I needed help. …I interviewed 3 professionals….including Nancy…who I realized was the perfect choice for me. Her extensive marketing communications experience, coupled with her assurance that she could distinguish me from thousands of executive coaching businesses, sealed the deal…No doubt Nancy is much more than simply a wordsmith/copywriter. She is a pro at showing you how to attract new clients—the bottom line for me, and any business… That's why I also asked her to create my new company name, Core Marketing Message, slogan/tagline and 'talking' logo. Her work is sensational! My first thought: Wow! This is brilliant! I love it! She not only distinguished me from my competition in a way that I never thought of before, the website copy blew me away! I literally got goose-bumps reading through it! It was exceedingly clear and superbly written…a wonderful masterpiece that went beyond my expectations! …Nancy went way beyond our contractual agreement. She originally said she would offer a few ideas. A few ideas? She offered a wealth of ideas that would not only encourage and retain website visitors, but would attract clients to me for years to come! She also gave me a free one hour of free coaching! That hour changed the way I viewed myself as an executive coach…I can't tell you what a difference her coaching did for me…It is obvious what separates Nancy from other marketing and public relations professionals…Her practical problem solution approach is like no other! If you are looking for a marketing professional…whether it is for website development or marketing your business…who truly cares about clients…and will do what it takes both in time and energy to be a superstar, you must hire Nancy! She could change your life!

"One of the attractive benefits Nancy offers…is a free assessment upfront regarding whether or not a client has a story...and if a client should spend money on publicity…If a client does not have a story, she honestly tells him and recommends the project not be pursued. I don't know of any professional who offers this free service or who will turn down potential business in an effort to save clients money…."

"…Nancy helped me realize that a branding campaign---which is what I thought I needed---would not only cost many thousands of dollars to create and produce… it is often not the best use of marketing dollars for a small business... She pointed out that a strategic, innovative problem-solution approach---one that is not employed by most traditional law firms---could help attract new clients and outshine the competition….She not only did a sensational job in creating a customized, innovative…marketing plan featuring a wealth of creative, fresh ideas and strategies for attracting clients, she delivered a practical approach that definitely stands out from traditional law firm marketing. I have never seen or heard of an approach that resembles this one……It can even cost less than traditional marketing endeavors, saving thousands for companies…GWN's approach enables clients to better understand their issues...become more productive and profitable… helping them attract new clients or customers…Nancy's impressive skills, creativity and knowledge can benefit any service provider or business who is struggling with their marketing, dissatisfied with their current or previous marketing endeavors and wants a practical results-oriented solution. I recommend her without hesitation."

"Nancy J. Wintner, President, GWN Consultants, has been a huge asset to our marketing team. She 'forced' me to really think about what we wanted to say, what benefits we are offering, what's important to our prospective clients and then developed a compelling way to tell our story.
