Hello all. Recently left an agency position to go back to freelance. ￼Have an idea for a promotional thing to agencies as an experienced freelance copywriter, an ad-industry-specific promo I want to do and need a reality check.￼ When you present concepts (i.e. ad concepts, websites, etc.,) do you use fake body copy? If so, what are the names you call that fake copy? I’ll be glad to share it, but ￼because it would look like some kind of a stealth pitch I’ll wait. Thank y’all.￼
