Kill the Killer Copy

From Michael – Kill the killer copy

Since the rise of the Internet the marketplace has become more and more cluttered and decent folks are desperately trying to find a way to get their message through. But, unfortunately, we are seeing an explosion of over-the-top, hyped up copy that is making consumers more wary then ever… which means less inclined to trust sales people… which means less apt to buy from sales people. I, for one, make a solemn promise to lay off the hype. It’s enough already. Real people want real stories.
