Some powerful press and magazine ads simply make a bold statement. But where there is a longer copy story to convey, the most potent headlines all promise to tell the reader something interesting, but actually tell them nothing at all (just like in newspaper editorial).

A headline’s sole role is to act as a Stop Sign and create enough intrigue to entice people into reading the body copy text ~ where the sell is delivered; and where well-chosen words can then hold readers’ interest and actually inspire a positive response.

Here’s a selection of Rob’s consumer ads to scroll through ~
