There are fourteen tips to create effective advertising copy. Here are the first seven:
1) Translate features into benefits. Don't just give information and assume that the reader will interpret. Example, front-wheel-drive is a product feature on an automobile. In advertising that car it would be a great mistake just to say that and assume that the reader knows why front wheel drive is a desirable feature. The advertising has to go on to explain the benefits of front wheel drive - safety, improved cornering, improved braking, better mileage and so on.
