Testimonials from Marketing Clients and Colleagues 


"I know Scott Mcdougal well and have worked with him on a number of marketing projects. He is a talented writer who is an absolute pleasure to work with, and refreshingly free of hype, ego, or arrogance." —Bob Bly, Direct Response Copywriter, Author of 85+ Book



"Scott is more than a writer ... the term is overused these days. You see, you simply have to be more. Today it's about the thinking, the ability to understand the brand and the innate knowledge of knowing how the space works. Scott has that, and then some. Anyone looking for a strategic copywriter needs to take a look at Scott — Lord knows I would." —Tyler Pierce, Creative Director, Writer, VIRTUE Worldwide


"I worked with Scott for a couple of years and found him a seriously talented professional writer. He's made of himself a connoisseur of marketing and an authority in the realm of dating and matchmaking." —Tom Davies, Creative Director, Designer



"Scott was able to immediately grasp our brand and make recommendations that were insightful and on target. He provided multiple options on headlines for many of our high profile projects and helped other writers with creative concepts. He is a deep thinker and enjoys discussing ideas. He is also energized by creative challenges but was also willing to pitch in and help out with production work when needed." —Judy Dworschak, Manager of Creative Services, Delta Vacations


"Working with Scott is always a big plus since he brings so much creativity and thought to the table. He is easy to get along with in every step of the deadline process and puts so much time into proper background research. We will continue to use his services and look forward to our next project together." —Lori Haller, Owner, President, Designing Response




Testimonials from Coaching Clients and Colleagues


"Scott has massive knowledge in the dating and relationship coaching industry. I saw his expertise firsthand when he took the stage at an industry conference for professional matchmakers and dating coaches. His program for smart, strong, successful women is a game changer too." —Tim Mourtazov, CEO of SmartMatchApp



"I have been a dating coach and professional matchmaker for over 15 years. I first met Scott a couple years ago and have had the privilege of working closely with him as he helped research, write and design our new dating coaching program. He has also given me additional skills to help my clients find meaningful relationships. He is very insightful, knowledgeable and brings tremendous clarity and passion to the world of male-female relationships." —Angela Harris, Director of Client Services, MSGI


"What a difference one program can make! Before the program I was sure of who I was and what I was looking for only to realize that I had been limiting myself to what I thought my perfect match looked like. Scott McDougal’s program taught me so much about mistakes I had been making in my dating life and opened a new realm of possibility for me by showing me that my beliefs in what a successful relationship looked like were wrong. The program has been life changing for me and I highly recommend this series to any woman serious about knowing more about herself and opening up her mind about what a healthy dating life looks like. Now, a year later and I am engaged to a man that I probably wouldn’t have chosen before the program based on what I thought my ideal man looked like but I’ve never been so happy in a relationship and I am so glad the program showed me what true love looked like." —Desiree


"In all honesty, had I gone through Scott's program when I first starting dating 3 years ago, I wouldn't have had to go through numerous first dates and a failed engagement. Scott knows his stuff! I’ve read all the self-help books from the “dating gurus” with PhDs and other letters after their names and they were all the same and not one of them applicable to me. Throughout Scott’s program I had several “Aha Moments” I never had with any of the others. As I grew in my enlightenment as a result of the program, so did my “dance card." It was as if a whole other world opened for me and I had my pick of men wanting to spend time with and be in a committed relationship. I was like “Holy shit, Scott, where were you and your program 3 years ago when I first started dating again?" It’s been 2 months since I completed the Attract The Man You Desire Program, and in that time, I’ve since found a wonderful man who loves me unconditionally. We’re crazy about each other and wedding bells will be ringing loud and clear in the very near future. To say I'm ecstatic is truly an understatement. Had it not been for Scott's program, I would probably still be looking at a bleak romantic future. Thank you, Scott!!!!!" — Toni


“I have listened to Scott and I have gotten great results from his advice, because my special lady friend really appreciates the romantic gestures that I have picked up from his reports. Thanks Scott!” —Dave




“There were moments my heart throbbed with reinvigorated excitement that my dream guy and all I desire he encompasses truly exists out there . . . is it crazy that I will make every man in pursuit of me read your book, as sort of a front gate entrance to my heart?!” —Crystal



“I would absolutely love it if my husband pulled the car aside, turned on my favorite song and we slow danced in the parking lot! It would be like we were kids again!” —Valerie
