RADIO ADVERTISING SECRET #1: The Ultimate Secret Of Successful Advertising

This is the first of a 6-part series of Secrets of Radio Advertising.

The pioneering advertising copywriter Robert Collier explained that the secret of advertising is to enter a conversation the consumer already is having.

It might be a conversation they’re having with another person; it might be a conversation they’re having with themselves:

“Boy, this is depressing. None of my clothes fits any more. I’ve just got to lose some weight!”

“I’ve got to come up with a romantic gift for my spouse for Valentine’s Day!”

“I know I should make a will, for my family’s protection. But I don’t have any idea who to go to….”

Hint: The consumer is not already having a conversation about the friendly, knowledgeable staff down at Honest Ed’s Automobile Emporium.

Upon pitching the concept to several account execs, they almost always say, but I HAVE to have the convenient location-phone-web-endlessrunonsentence in there too..
