Publisher's Summary

Fact: Your brain is being controlled - and you don't even know it. Because if you think the ads you're seeing today are just pretty pictures with nice, creative copy, you're mistaken. Truth is, you are being powerfully influenced by dozens of proven scientific principles of advertising psychology...little-known techniques of consumer persuasion that go completely unnoticed by the buying public. And they're causing you - and millions like you - to spend enormous amounts of money every day on countless products and services. But what are these principles? How do they work? And how can you use them in your own advertising?

Prepare yourself for a unique learning experience as author Drew Eric Whitman takes you on a wild roller-coaster ride through the streets of New York's famed Madison Avenue and teaches you the specific psychological techniques that today's top copywriters and designers use to influence the masses...and how you can use them to rapidly increase your sales, no matter what you sell.

In this audiobook, Whitman teaches you dozens of well-guarded secrets that he learned during his 30+ years in the ad business, including:

  • How to push your prospects' hot buttons in every ad, sales letter, or email - it's not hard to do once you know the secret
  • Why developing your "USP" can leave your competition in the dust - it's the quickest way to instantly begin out-marketing your competitors
  • Why you don't need a degree in business to create great ads - but there is one thing you must know or your ads will likely fail miserably
  • How to develop a powerful ad-agency mind-set - what the pros know about consumer buying behavior and how you can use it to your advantage
  • How to save $600 for every $1,000 you spend on ads - this idea alone is worth infinitely more than the price of this book...and you can start using it immediately
  • The amazing five-second, no-fail headline test - chances are your ads, emails, websites, and other promotional materials fail this test every time
  • How to install persuasive images in people's brains - learn how to direct how people think about your products and services
  • Why people really buy your product or service - sorry, but it's not what you think
  • How to write headlines that get read and get response - tons of examples you can "steal" for your own ads
  • Long vs. short copy: Which is really best for response? Don't believe the lies!
  • How to use the devilishly effective pyramid principal - lure readers into your ads by understanding human eyeball behavior
  • How to turn ordinary words into copy that motivates, influences, persuades
  • How to cause people to mentally demonstrate your products...before they buy
  • How emotional words melt sales resistance like a red-hot knife through butter
  • And much more

Be Careful with This Book. Extremely Powerful.

Holy shit.

This book literally covers everything. From psychology to copy, to color to font and more.

As a copywriter & marketing consultant -- this book is the equivalent of 10 or so other books -- all put together in one -- and will be on my desk for regular reading and re-reading.

I'm also grateful they chose such a great narrator. One of the best.

Listen to it. Then listen to it again. Then read it. Then read it again. Repeat. You'll make a lot of money if you follow what it says.

Excellent info, audiobook isn't optimal form

I purchased the physical book first, and as I didn't have enough time to read it, I backed up with the audio book. Excellent information and specific tactics, very approachable, I've sent copies to my teammates.

Thanks Drew!

Excellent book on advertising

I will most certainly dive back into this book. It's probably best to have both an audible version plus a hard copy or ebook so that you can take notes on all of the great content. Must read for business owners, marketers, prospectors etc.

Simply put: The BEST book there is on advertising

Simply the best book there is on advertising, copy, and marketing psychology explained in a simple, easy to understand, easy to implement manner. The only book I've purchased both on audible and paper back because it is really that good. You need to have this book as a reference when trying to sell anything. It definitely is worth more than the cash paid for it.

Narrator Crushes It!

Great content. Even better narration.

The book goes over the basics plus some stuff I hadn't heard before.

The combination of the writing and the narrator makes everything more entertaining and therefore, easier to retain than any marketing book I've listened to before.

It is sick. G.R.E.A.T

This is amazing. As a starter entrepreneur I wanted to learn stuff about advertizing an general. If you do as I am... Don't look any further. This is your book. I have heard many audio books, but this narration kicks. I would go as far to say it is sexy. LOT LOT LOT OF CONTENT. You will sit down and listen carefully. After a time you will realize you are hungry. You don't do shit. Just listen. You are sleepy, but it keeps you soo entertained, you just rush out for a coffee, and listen to the end. Finally, you are asleep. Next day. You start to listening to it from the beginning to the end. After a month you will know every sentence, every word. That great this stuff is. With a late night DJ voice of an old man, it is unbelievable. GET IT RIGHT NOW!

Old School

There are a few basic pieces of information that are essential to know. But the research is old, mail orders are outdated, print media is dying and so are the recommended font types!
Great book for the late 90s but I’m falling asleep waiting for tips that I can actually use.
