Advertising is a come on. The rules are similar to meeting a lady or gent at a bar or café.
Conventional, unthinking, desperate advertising clutters our eyes with words and crap and blahblahblah. It’s a turn-off.
Effective advertising appeals to our better selves, our aspirations. Ads that win our readers’ hearts keep it clean and magnetize our attention, rather than shouting at us with big neon letters.
Don’t sell your products—remind us of the lifestyle we want to live, who we want to be, and tell us how you can help us to do so.
