When will someone (again, like you and me) buy anything at all? And, I mean “anything.” People will only buy when the perceived benefits outweigh the value of the money saved by not buying. That’s it! That’s what you need to make happen with your targeted sales messages to your audience. And we can help you make this happen. Can you create more effective, productive and profitable marketing and advertising? If you’ve read this far you’ve proven one thing that I’ve said: people will read ads if they see self-interest and benefits in them. The headline and the copy hit a “hot button” with you. Let us help you hit the “hot buttons” of self-interest with your target audience. It doesn’t matter what you’re selling or to whom–Benefit, Credibility, Seduction, Why and When are components of every effective advertisement and every successful marketing campaign.
