    Posted by Kathy

    Clear, easy steps to follow to create commercials that sell products. I would recommend this product to anyone who works in the business. Everyone who owns or manages a business should hear this message.

  2. A Master's Course in Commercial Writing

    Posted by Danny McWilliams

    have owned "Damn the Creativity, Full Sales Ahead," for a number of years. I now know that the lessons taught in "Damn the Creativity..." is like earning an "Associates Degree" in copy-writing. "How to Create Maximum Impact Radio Advertising" is more like earning a "Doctorate Degree" in copy-writing. I HIGHLY recommend this seminar as a way to elevate your copy-writing from average to exceptional. Your clients will benefit from your investment.

  3. The key word here is "MAXIMUM

    Posted by Neal Angell, Creative Services Director, Mid-West Family Broadcasting
