We want consumers to say, 'That's a hell of a product' instead of, 'That's a hell of an ad.'
What helps people, helps business.
Let's gear our advertising to sell goods, but let's recognize also that advertising has a broad social responsibility.
If you don't get noticed, you don't have anything. You just have to be noticed, but the art is in getting noticed naturally, without screaming or without tricks.
Advertising is the ability to sense, interpret... to put the very heart throbs of a business into type, paper and ink.
A good basic selling idea, involvement and relevancy, of course, are as important as ever, but in the advertising din of today, unless you make yourself noticed and believed, you ain't got nothin'.

A good ad which is not run never produces sales.
The secret of all effective originality in advertising is not the creation of new and tricky words and pictures, but one of putting familiar words and pictures into new relationships.
