The Classic Copywriting Formula

04-May-2015

This template has been used as a guide by agency copywriters since back in the Mad Men days! 

It focuses on clear benefits of what you’re selling in a logical, interesting way. You don't have to follow it, but it's great to keep you on track when writing about your product or service for marketing purposes. 

You can use it for both traditional and digital mediums and it works for both short and long pieces of copy.  

We hope you find it useful!
