More and more copywriters today do not know the proven rules and principles of persuasion. Why this refusal to adhere to first principles?
- Many copywriters don’t understand the fundamentals of sales writing.

- Others are more concerned with winning creative awards and filling their portfolios with snazzy ads rather than effective ads that send sales through the roof.
