Quote of the Day
Far more thought and care go into the composition of any prominent ad in a newspaper or magazine than go into the writing of their features and editorials.
You have to grab moments when they happen. I like to improvise and ad lib.
I've always been a spontaneous singer. And all the stuff that you hear on the end of the songs, what they call the ad libs - that just comes out of my head. That's not thought out at all. I have the verses and the choruses, and then after that it's total improvisation.
Something in the human psyche confuses beauty with the right to be loved. The briefest glance at human folly reveals that good looks and worthiness operate independently. Yet countless socializing forces, from Aunt Clara to the latest perfume ad, reinforce beliefs like 'If I were pretty enough, I would be loved.'
The answer I found is you stay away from the people who make fun of you, and you join these ad hoc groups who understand your craziness.
Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon. July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind.
I did Playboy. There was an ad in the paper for playmates. Playboy called me and flew me to Los Angeles, and I was on the March cover of 1992.
Anna Nicole Smith
When I was in middle school, some of my so-called friends found a catalogue ad I did for Superman pajamas. They made as many copies as they could and pasted them up all over school.
I worked in ad sales. I would call up local businesses and try to get them to buy ads in the paper. The whole time, I felt like I was just scamming people.
Well, the first thing that clued me in to the fact that there was something really scary about breast cancer, way beyond the thought of dying, was coming across an ad in the newspaper for pink breast cancer teddy bears. I am not that afraid of dying, but I am terrified of dying with a pink teddy bear under my arm.
We want consumers to say, 'That's a hell of a product' instead of, 'That's a hell of an ad.'
When I go in to see people - and I sell an occasional ad now - I never say, 'Help me because I am black' or 'Help me because I am a minority.' I always talk about what we can do for them.
John H. Johnson
Properly practiced creativity can make one ad do the work of ten.
Today it is not the classroom nor the classics which are the repositories of models of eloquence, but the ad agencies.
A good ad should be like a good sermon: It must not only comfort the afflicted, it also must afflict the comfortable.
One Ad is worth more to a paper than forty Editorials.
I have learned that it is far easier to write a speech about good advertising than it is to write a good ad.
You must make the product interesting, not just make the ad different. And that's what too many of the copywriters in the U.S. today don't yet understand.
If you're Burberry or Gucci, you're not going to run a banner ad. To get brand ad dollars to move to digital, you need to create a beautiful experience.
Buying a banner, you have no control whether ten different people see your ad once, or one person sees it ten times.
But the Bible speaks against it, and because the Bible speaks against it, we allow rampant sin including homosexuality and lying, and to me lying is just as b ad as homosexuality, and we've allowed this sin to run rampant in our nation.
I literally coded Facebook in my dorm room and launched it from my dorm room. I rented a server for $85 a month, and I funded it by putting an ad on the side, and we've funded ever since by putting ads on the side.
A great ad campaign will make a bad product fail faster. It will get more people to know it's bad.
Man is a means and not an end, and he is a means to economic or political ends which are not really ends in themselves but means to other ends which in their turn are means and so ad infinitum.
Everyone knows that when you look at a television ad, you do not expect to get information. You expect to see delusion and imagery.
C. S. Lewis
