Rosser Reeves was a dynamic and powerful copywriter one of the few in 1960 inducted into the Copywriters Hall of Fame. There's a reason for that: He knew and practiced reality in advertising.

In your hands you'll own the most dynamic truth ever written about selling your clients ...
He believed the purpose of advertising is to sell. He insisted that an advertisement or commercial should show off the value of a product, not the cleverness of a copywriter. His most typical ad is probably that for Anacin , a headache medicine. The ad was considered grating and annoying by almost all viewers but it was remarkably successful, tripling the product's sales. In 7 years the 59-second commercial made more money than the movie Gone With The Wind had in a quarter-century. Reeves generated millions for his clients, the Ted Bates agency where he rose to chairman (existing today as Bates 141 . The AMC program, Mad Men

Reality in Advertising and why it's great to have an uncle who ...
So my copy of “Reality in Advertising” by Rosser Reeves arrived today. Which I’m very excited about btw. Not only is it out of print but copies of it currently sell for hundreds of dollars on Amazon. It’s from 1961, still in good condition and from the first Borzoi edition. You might have heard of Rosser Reeves if you have read “ Ogilvy on Advertising ” or Bob Bly’s “ The Copywriter’s Handbook “. Both of these I’ve read recently in which Rosser is mentioned multiple times. Funny story on how I got my copy… So about a week ago I was going over my book ... market research, surveys and trends


ADVERTISING ; Real Women; Bum's the word as Dove leads the way ...
of town and in newspapers daily. Six women smile, pose and invite you to stare as they show off their round bellies, full thighs and smooth skin. In their non-retouched, size-14 glory, these women are creating quite a stir in advertising. In an attempt to redefine standard marketing approaches in cosmetic advertising, Dove has recently launched its 'Campaign for Real Beauty' in New Zealand. The campaign features real women - not models - who pose in their bras and panties to promote Dove's range of cellulite-firming lotions and bath gels. The product, "as tested on real curves", is intended to celebrate ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Hard-to-find Classic Marketing Books
Haldeman-Julius was the master of selling books. During the 1920’s and 30’s he sold over 200 million of them, nearly 2000 different titles. That gave him the most accurate statistical measurement of what people are interested in paying money to read. And the information is just as valid today as it was then.  “Go read a copy of the First Hundred Million! It is where I learned my magic words – the ones that make copy SIZZLE and my headlines impossible to ignore.” – Gary ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Adrian MacNair: Liberals targeted by vast left- and right-wing conspiracy
Michael Ignatieff is the victim of a persistent media bias, according to Liberal party president Alfred Apps. In an 18-page analysis obtained exclusively by Victoria freelance journalist , Sean Holman, Mr. Apps suggests the media “increasingly appears to have lost all perspective on reality” in coverage of the federal Liberal Party. He suggests much of the media, aided from within the ranks of the Liberal Party itself, has bought into the narrative that Mr.Ignatieff and Liberal electoral prospects under the leadership have all the “marks of being Tory/NDP-inspired.” It’s a vast left and right-wing conspiracy, then? Intriguing. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
'Leftist art project' irks religious community
Yossi Even-Kama's "State of Judea" exhibit, which has been posted on Facebook and picked up by various religious websites, is a fictional depiction of the gradual death of Israeli democracy in the years 2020-2023 and the establishment of a religious, anti-democratic state in its place.   The "collapse", as Even-Kama puts it, will begin with the signing of a peace agreement with the Arabs, which will include the "division of Jerusalem, a withdrawal from the territories and additional concessions."   In the exhibit, the "death of democratic Israel" is announced on posters ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Directory Survival
What's the survival expectancy for new directories vs the established? And are they built to serve and go on to do better things these days, or is this about greed for profit... Personally, I feel the majority of directories are built to make cash for the owners and nothing more.

The client must come first, be given outstanding advantage for them to return and advertise again. Unfortunately you can tell through coversing on forums, that this isn't the intention of some ...
