This the new bible for creating more powerful advertising. These days, the fundamentals of advertising that truly build great brands are often overlooked. But Steve Lance and Jeff Woll are leading a back-to-what-works movement with The Little Blue Book of Advertising . A short, fun-to-read, practical book designed to be read quickly and referred to again and again, each of the book's 52 ideas relates to day-to-day problems with real examples, then provides an invative, sometimes blunt solution. For instance: 3 Read what your customer reads, watch what she watches; 10 Quality is the absence of nquality signals; 15 Sell the benefit, the advantage, and the feature - in that order; 19 Get the -bodies out of your approval process; 41 Kw when and how to scream sale . Just as Jeffrey Gitomer's hugely successful The Little Red Book of Selling became the got-to-have resource for salespeople, Steve Lance and Jeff Woll have written the perfect handbook for what does and doesn't work in today's advertising world.
Steve Lance and Jeff Woll are partners at Unconventional Wisdom, a creative resource group. Lance was formerly a creative director with Della Femina, Travisano & Partners and creative director of NBC. Woll was a 20-year veteran of OgilvyWorldwide, including stints as COO of their Montreal office and CEO of Ogilvy & Mather Partners in New York. Both authors have won numerous industry awards.
