The Wizard Chronicle

Dear Scott

Advertising works best when it speaks to what customers already care about. This is called “speaking to a felt need.” I’ve never met anyone that’s had a secret, unmet desire to go to the dentist.

Good ads aren’t about the company that’s paying for the ad. Good ads are about the reader, the listener, the viewer of the ad. This is especially true when writing classified ads for employment. - Roy H. Williams, The Wizard of Ads
