2. How To Write A Good Advertisement

A great manual for anyone who writes copy to elicit a response from their audience. Is that everyone in Marketing? It starts off like a manual on how to write click-bait article titles, then progresses to showing you how each part of an advert is there to move the reader to the next part. The ultimate aim is to elicit action that drives revenue.
