Ogilvy’s advice to the copywriter below is extremely important for anyone who communicates. Especially marketers, copywriters, and salespeople.
“Do not, however, address your readers as though they were gathered together in a stadium. When people read your copy, they are alone. Pretend you are writing each of them a letter on behalf of your client. One human being to another, second person singular.” – David Ogilvy
Think about how that can apply to written, audio, and video content. Create for an audience of one.
