How to Write a Good Advertisement

Victor O. Schwab, "How to Write a Good Advertisement"
1962 | pages: 246 | ISBN: 0879803975 | PDF | 12,8 mb

The advertisement itself is the keystone in the arch of sales. Most sales difficulties (for example, problems of dealer distribution, cooperation, and brand switching) actually hark right back to impotent advertisements. They were too easily resistible; simply not good enough to make people see, read, and act upon them: to go out and demand the product advertised and no other.
Poor copy cannot overcome faults or gaps in dealer distribution; it cannot even cash in on the finest dealer setups. But good copy can, and does, surmount many dealer difficulties, making them secondary, and selling in spite of them.
Therefore, since either the blame for failure or the credit for success in many sales campaigns can rightly be laid at the doorstep of the advertisements themselves, the first five chapters of this book concentrate upon certain basic elements of a good advertisement. This is essential, because, as Conde Nast once stated, "The more factors we do not know, the more important it is for us to isolate those very few factors which we count on."
