How To Write Headlines Better Than This One.
Have you ever wondered how those marketing people think up such smart and clever commercials? Well, I do too, and I write advertising for a living. But I still find myself marveling at some of the great ideas I see out there.

Great ideas grab people. They force people to take notice and listen to what a brand has to say. Too many times a message is lost because no one paid any attention to it. To be noticed, an idea must be different, fresh and on target.
