In This Episode
David Deutsch is an A-List Copywriter in the truest sense… he started at Ogilvy and Mather (when Ogilvy was still leading the troops), pioneered the “magalog” style of direct mail sales letters, and has written for or consulted just about every major player in the industry for the over three decades.
David is the perfect person to add some branches of knowledge in this wisdom tree episode.
Many great moments in this one… my favorite was hearing David describe what it feels like to have the increasingly rare experience of reading great copy, and what more copywriters can do to get their copy to that level.
