Ad expert Drew Eric Whitman says:
Are you fed up with lousy ad results?
I wrote this book to pierce the veil of silly nonsense and costly advertising myths. To pull off the blinders worn by so many well-meaning but terribly misinformed businesspeople who are scratching their heads wondering why their crippled horses-their poorly constructed ads, brochures, sales letters, e-mails, and Websites-aren’t winning races.
Don’t either believe or disbelieve what you read in this book.
Mere belief in these ideas won’t put cash in your pockets. Belief alone won’t put food on your table, clothes on your back, or a new car in your driveway. Instead, I want you to experience the results of using the techniques I share with you. Experience how your business and bank account grow. Experience the thrill of having an ever-increasing number of people hand you cash, write you checks, debit their credit cards, and pump up your PayPal account. How? By putting these prin-ciples into action.
No matter what you sell, I hope this book helps you succeed.

On page 184 the author says...
""Advertising is not supposed to be entertainment! You may be entertained by it, but that's not its purpose. It's not a creativity contest. It's not meant to grace the walls of the Louvre in Paris. It's also not poetry, comedy, or a riddle to be figured out. Advertising is not about winning awards for being tricky, off-the-wall, or ingenious. Advertising - plain and simple - is about selling products and services. It's business communication with the goal to increase sales by interesting people enough in a product or service that they ultimately trade their money for it.""
Booyah! Mind blown!
Here's the deal. The author makes complete sense with all the agency examples and he reveals the truth behind the true intention of advertising.
It's about selling but in an ethical way.
The book covers a lot of ad agency examples and case studies that you can incorporate into your own campaigns BUT with your target market in mind. Pick and choose elements from the campaigns to include in your very own marketing materials.
You may or may not agree with all of his methods but the book is a worthy read.
If you're a small business person seeking to write for your business or website, you really don't need. Even if you hire a copywriter, you should read this to understand what they're doing (or should be doing) and to make sure it's best implemented in your marketing materials. (Graphic designers are notorious for screwing up sales copy.)
If you're a copywriter this is a good book to start with, though you'll want to check out many others as well.
If you're writing short, PPC or banner ads online, where you don't have room to go on at length, this will help you. The guy who recommended it to me is making about $4K per day.
What I appreciate most from reading this book are the many references to research on how people think and act. This is not just another book filled with "theoretical" ideas. This book is packed with real world examples and how they relate to the mind of the reader. I am constantly reaching for this book as a reference. I will definitely need to purchase this book as a Kindle edition to have on hand for my computer.
For $10 bucks this is a steal. There are other copywriting course on the internet that cost 10 times the amount of this book and are not nearly as good as this one.
