John Kistner

Remote Freelance Advertising Copywriter & Creative Director, Chicago, IL


It’s not always easy finding the right remote freelance copywriter for a particular advertising project. I’ve been in your shoes where you’re looking for specific experience, need a quick turnaround, or want a fresh approach for an existing client. So, how do you know who’s right for the job?

You want a remote freelance copywriter who’s idea driven and can drop in and blast off without a lot of hand-holding. You need someone who asks all the right questions up front, even ones you haven’t thought of, and then goes off and makes something wonderful happen. Something you didn’t expect. Something that drives the client’s business in ways they hadn’t imagined. After all, that’s what they’re paying for, right?

Let me be that kind of copywriter for you.

I bring a healthy mix of curiosity, experience and enthusiasm to every copywriting assignment. Being a freelance Creative Director too, I understand the importance of your deadlines and budgets. No adult supervision required.

Things I do that clients like:

• Social posts
• OLVs
• Broadcast
• New biz pitches
• Brand relaunches
• Direct
• Experiential

• Allstate Insurance
• American Heart Association

If I can create work that makes your life easier and drives your client’s business, mission accomplished. Where do we go from here? Email me, or DM me on LinkedIn about your upcoming freelance copywriting needs.

John Kistner? Yes please. Insanely professional and responsible. Works hard. Listens. He has reason and rationale for every single word. Like a good designer, except for words. The confidence he gave me was incredible. From long copy to short, pithy headlines. John's a culture guy too...as in, he's good for your culture. Because everyone around him likes him, respects him and loves working for and with him.
