Ad Copy

Just because you produce an aviation product or offer an aviation service, it doesn’t mean that you’re an expert in getting the word out about what you have to offer. Earl Downs published his own regional newspaper for number of years, which included writing ad copy for many of his advertisers. He listens to what you say and then puts it into words that will place your product in the best light. He also has experience performing customer and vendor interviews for the purpose of providing testimonials regarding your product.


Press Releases

A press release can make your best first impression, but writing press releases is an art form. A press release is designed to introduce or advocate your service or product, but it has to be written so that it communicates to the customer or news services. All too often press releases are long on detail but miss the customer’s viewpoint.



You can’t be an expert at everything, and aviation news reporting is a classic example of this. Earl Downs can quickly turn the report of an aviation event into something that is accurate and understandable to the audience. Earl Downs has experience writing news copy and scripts in all areas of aviation and aerospace activities. He also has experience in interviewing original sources to obtain the real story.
