THE MOST CONSISTENTLY SUCCESSFUL
Creative advertising, when done correctly, is the most consistently successful style of advertising ever devised. Why? It makes use of all the applicable resources of verbal and visual art to magnify the selling proposition, while other styles of advertising rely on comparatively ordinary means of magnification, such as excessive repetition, shouting, and commonplace visuals.
