Publisher Description

Barely one in a hundred businesspeople knows these facts about creating powerful advertising. Do You?

FACT! Sixty percent of people read only headlines. Your headline must stop them or your advertising will likely fail.

FACT! Captions under photos get 200 percent greater readership than non-headline copy.

FACT! Ads with sale prices draw 20 percent more attention.

FACT! Half-page ads pull about 70 percent of full-page ads; quarter-page ads pull about 50 percent of full-page ads.

FACT! Four-color ads are up to 45 percent more effective than black and white.

New York’s biggest ad agencies use dozens of these little-known secrets every day to influence people to buy. And now—thanks to Cashvertising—you can, too. And it won’t matter one bit whether you’re a corporate giant or a mom-and-pop pizza shop. These techniques are based on human psychology.

Like a wild roller-coaster ride through the streets of Madison Avenue, Cashvertising teaches you the tips, tricks, and strategies that New York’s top gun copywriters and designers use to persuade people to buy like crazy.

Would you like to waste your money and learn nothing?

Lacks real-world examples and images. Like similar titles, this book includes a list of principles, but gives fictional examples so generic they don’t apply to anyone’s situation. It propounds the importance of images in ads but doesn’t include photos, diagrams, etc. to illustrate its points. Maybe licensing real ads is cost prohibitive, but without actual case studies, what’s the point of writing such a book in the first place? Published 10 years ago, but reads like something from the Madmen era. Only real value seems to be writing click-bait copy, which hopefully we’re beyond at this point.
