“Hi Patrick: Here’s what our Channel Rep had to say about the retailer data sheet, which you prepared for our firm…’the writing is some of the best description writing I’ve ever seen. It really sells the product better than any others I’ve used. I’m not kidding. It made me jump out of my chair wanting to purchase the product.’ Now how’s *that* for a testimonial within a testimonial! Thanks for your great work.”
