Claude Hopkins “There is that technique in all art, science and mechanics. And it is in all lines a basic essential. This is for groundwork only. To properly understand advertising or to learn even its rudiments, one must start with the proper conception. Advertising is multiplied salesmanship. It’s principles are the principles of salesmanship. Success and failure in both lines are due to like causes. Thus, every advertising question should be answered by the salesman’s standards.”
“Avoid superlatives and platitudes. Be enthusiastic, friendly and memorable. Don’t be a bore. Tell the truth, but make the truth fascinating.”
Bernice Fitz-Gibbon “Creativity often consists of merely turning up what is already there. Did you know that right and left shoes were thought up only a little more than a century ago?” “Advertising is a craft, not an art.”
Rosser Reeves “Every advertiser needs to have a unique selling proposition to set the company or the product apart from other companies or other products.”
Fairfax Cone “Advertising is what you do when you can’t go to see somebody. That’s all it is.”
Jack Trout and Al Ries “In short, marketing is war, where the enemy is your competitor and the ground to be won is the customer.”
Alvin Eicoff State the problem. Explain the solution. Demonstrate how your product or service best provides the solution.
