Seducing Strangers: How to Get People to Buy What You’re Selling (The Little Black Book of Advertising Secrets) – $1.99 – Today’s B&N price match 0 comments

An advertising creative director for more than 25 years and the Mad Men co-producer responsible for Don Draper’s credibility as an advertising genius, Weltman distills everything he knows about the art of persuasion into a playbook – of rules, principles, insights, insider anecdotes, and more, all tailored to the fast-changing life in the information economy.
Weltman identifies the four elements of selling—one of which is behind everything from a national television campaign to an email blast. And then Weltman explains how to employ these strategies, including: the six words that win business; the four kinds of stories; what to do if your product sucks; why lying in an ad will never pay off; why information reduces doubt; how to think like a force-multiplier; why different is better than better; why to remove jargon and acronyms and reveal ideas and relationships.
Advertising, Joshua Weltman argues, is a toolbox, not a tool, and used right it makes people happy. Seducing Strangers shows you how. Buy this book today for $1.99 as it is the B&N price match.
