Mark L. Fox is an author and leading authority on teaching practical creative thinking techniques for business.
At age 31, Mark was the youngest person with the title of Chief Engineer on the Space Shuttle Program.
He received NASA’s highest recognition of “Launch Honoree” at the age of 23.
Mark has an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and an MBA. Having held top management positions in Rocket Science, Aircraft Hydraulics, Engineering Services, Customer Service, Software, and e-Business, Mark has an extremely diversified background.
He has held positions ranging from Management and Operations to Sales and Marketing and Research and Development.
Some of Mark’s unique accomplishments include increasing e-business sales 600 percent in one year; he was also the Chairman of the “orbital debris” committee and an eight-time collegiate “All American” in Marksmanship. Mark also designed and built a 10,000-pound rocket, built his own airplane, and flies hot air balloons.
Mark’s interest in creative thinking dates back to the early days of his career when good, practical, creative thinking training simply couldn’t be found. Over the years, Mark has developed a unique and practical creative thinking program that really works. The “Sly as a Fox” program was developed out of a need for an effective training program to stimulate creative thinking. The program consists of a set of practical tools that provide a fun and exciting way to learn how to think creatively.
You can go to my personal blog for writing semi-random thoughts about:
While I have been a writer all of my adult life, my web copywriting career began in 2004, shortly after I was invited to become a Wizard of Ads Partner. By 2006, copywriting had become my fulltime employment. From June 2007 until November of 2009, I worked almost exclusively with Bryan and Jeffrey Eisenberg at Future Now, Inc.
While with Future Now, I have consulted for several Fortune 50 companies, participated in scores of major site redesigns, and have had the privilege of running or participating in hundreds of split and multivariate tests of web design, content, and messaging.
In addition to my consulting and writing, I have created and taught a perennially sold-out copywriting course called How to Write Powerfully and Clearly, and I co-teach Persuasive Online Copywriting with Jeffrey Eisenberg and Writing for the Radio and the Internet for Wizard Academy.
Currently, I specialize in combining content and messaging improvement with aggressive analytics and testing as part of a “holistic” approach to website optimization that bridges the divide between Usability/Optimization/Analytics crowd and persuasive copywriting/Content Marketing. I am also a strong advocate and practitioner of radio-to-web strategies to drive traffic and leads for local and regional businesses.
