I’ve read a number of books and countless blog articles on ‘how to…’ guides when it comes to copywriting, and nothing comes close to just how powerful this book is.
Not only is it that, but it’s also super easy to read, plenty of witty English humour (not enough books with this lighter style in my opinion) and packed full of little nuggets of wisdom from Glenn’s experience of working as a professional copywriter for many years!
It’ll guide you through types of copy, but most importantly – what many ‘gurus’ fail to help you with – he SHOWS you how to structure direct response copy. From headlines to testimonials, what works and equally important, what doesn’t.
His examples used in the book of ads, both good and bad, are really helpful to understand how as copywriters, we should be breaking down our copy piece by piece, not being afraid to scrub a bad idea and start again.
Glenn identifies so many ‘tips’ when it comes to the all-important psychology of what sells, what keeps people reading and above all, how to concisely deliver a good idea and make it…HUMAN.
I now see so much ‘copy’ everywhere I go – magazines, banks, the post office, doesn’t matter, but I visualise the process behind the words – the ‘why’ behind the copy, breaking down ideas quickly in your head based off his great tips.
There’s something in here for everyone (not just copywriters) – business owners too…
But as a copywriter AND business owner, it’s been invaluable and I’d have paid double for this price of this book (I’d probably expect a hardback, signed copy though, Glenn. Just kidding).
