Charlotte Hicks Crockett, Professional Copywriter

Hi and thanks for dropping by. I’m Charlotte Hicks Crockett, owner of Green Flash Marketing.

I am a marketing strategist and copywriter for businesses in the insurance, info-marketing, scuba and Christian/conservative political markets.

As a Dan Kennedy Certified Copywriter for Info-Marketers* and a Certified SEO Copywriter, I love using my expertise to help business make more money.

I’m an ocean lover from birth, having grown up on the Intracoastal Waterway in North Carolina. From racing sailboats to waterskiing to fishing, I spent as much time on and in the ocean as I could. Still do as a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and underwater photographer.

My other passion growing up was horseback riding and I competed in hunter and jumper events through college, starting a riding team at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Self-diagnosed with professional ADD, I’ve worked in IT for Electronic Data Systems (now part of Hewlett-Packard), as a Senior Corporate Tax Accountant (I’m also a CPA), and in the insurance world as the owner of a 3rd generation insurance agency.

I’ve consulted with start-ups, family businesses, and large corporations and coached insurance professionals from as far away as Russia and South Africa. Whether you have a brick and mortar business, an internet business or any combination of the two, I can help.

Outside of work, my time is dedicated to church activities (music, youth and a homeless ministry) and Rotary where I’m currently President of my local club.

Not content to rest only on experience writing persuasive copy, I’ve committed to intensive study of marketing and copywriting. I’ve studied under some of the best copywriters and marketers in the world and continue to work to improve my skills in both print and online copywriting in order to bring the most value to my clients.

Below is more information about my experience if you have that level of interest.

I look forward to working with you soon! Contact me here today.
